If I Had A Hammer

If I Had A Hammer

If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning,
I'd hammer in the evening, all over this land;
I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out warning,
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All - over this land.

If I had a bell, I'd ring it in the morning,
I'd ring it in the evening, all over this land;
I'd ring out danger, I'd ring out warning,
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All - over this land.

If I had a song, I'd sing it in the morning,
I'd sing it in the evening, all over this land;
I'd sing out danger, I'd sing out warning,
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters,
All - over this land.

Well, I got a hammer, And I got a bell,
And I got a song to sing, all over this land;
It's the hammer of justice, It's the bell of freedom,
It's the song about love between my brothers and my sisters,
All - over this land.
It's the hammer of justice, It's the bell of freedom,
It's the song about love between my brothers and my sisters,
All - over this land.
