Lyrics with pictures I like to close my eyes / So my heart can plainly see / Right through the way things are / Clear to the way they ought to be / To somewhere that's safe and sunlitsomewhere that's safe and sunlit / And serene / Oh, and absolutely green / Picture a perfect placePicture a perfect place / Where there is no doom and gloom / Birds singing happy songs / And flowers bursting into bloom / A somewhere like nowhere else / You've ever seen / That's absolutely greenYou've ever seen / That's absolutely green / That's how the world can be / If we just want it / Why isn't it that way do you suppose / Maybe 'cause no one's concentrating on it / Just give it love and kindness / And see how green it grows / Maybe it's just a dream / But I know deep in my heart / If everyone believed / Believing is the place to start / We could fill everywhere with flowersWe could fill everywhere with flowers
If each of us used all our powers
If we all cared is what I really mean
We could all live in a world
That's bright and shining
Oh, and absolutely green
We could all live in a world
That's bright and shining
And absolutely green
STANLEY: Uh-huh. See? Hee hee hee!
ROSIE: Ha ha ha!
STANLEY: I knew I could do it. Hee hee hee!
