Elvis Costello - "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understand" lyrics

As I walk through
This wicked world
Is all hope lost'
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery'
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.
I ask myself

And each time I feel like this inside
There's one thing I wanna know
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'

Through troubled times
And as I walk on
So where are the strong
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
And who are the trusted'
Sweet harmony

And where is the harmony'
'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'

What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'
And who are the trusted'
Sweet harmony
So where are the strong'
And where is the harmony'

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding'
