Hang out the flags a new world order's on the way

 Start singing now a song to greet the joyful day
 
BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Just when we thought the time was right for celebrating

  With music of the spheres

  What's this - another boat of fleeing refugees on
Dm9
  A sea of children's tears
 
CHORUS
G               Am

Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
 
VERSE 2

We're only men and women doing what we can

 Sometimes I think that God is working to a plan
 
BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Then other times I swear that he is improvising
Dm9
  Discordant and remote
Fmaj7
  Another orphan baby in failed uprising
Dm9
  Another real bum note
 
CHORUS
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying

  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
 
[Middle 8]
Cmaj7           Dm7
  And if you're listening up there
Cmaj7          Dm7
  You could consider this a prayer
 
BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Well who am I to tell you how to run your business
Dm9
  Man, you could strike me blind
Fmaj7
  What kind of noise we gotta make down here before we
Dm9
  Destroy your peace of mind
 
CHORUS
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth

  Is number one across the earth
 
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying

  Is number one across the earth

  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
