I know I've reached political burnout when concentrating on how to express a certain thought, my thinking is completely overtaken by an old song I haven't heard or thought of in years. There's a good version of "If I Ruled the World" on YouTube by Celine Dion and Tony Bennett. (Lyrics written by Leslie Bricusse) Enjoy!

If I ruled the world,
Every day would be the first day of spring,
Every heart would have a new song to sing,
And we’d sing of the joy every morning would bring.

If I ruled the world,
Every man would be as free as a bird,
Every voice would be a voice to be heard,
Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred.

My world would be a beautiful place
Where we would weave such a wonderful dream.
My world would wear a smile on its face
Like the man in the moon when the moon beams.

If I ruled the world,
Every man would say the world was his friend,
There’d be happiness that no man could end,
No, my friend, not if I ruled the world.

Every head would be held up high,
There’d be sunshine in everyone’s sky,
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.

If I ruled the world.
