We Are The World (The Fair trade Song)

Chorus.

We are the world, we have a vision that’s here to stay
We are the voice we are the ones who support Fair-trade
Wake up the world, and tell every boy and girl
That together we are one
Co’s we are the world

Verse 1.

Hand in hand together we can help tell the world
We believe in better for every boy and every girl
To make us stronger than we were before
Let’s co-operate together for now and for ever more

Chorus.

We are the world, we have a vision that’s here to stay
We are the voice we are the ones who support Fair-trade
Wake up the world, and tell every boy and girl
That together we are one
Co’s we are the world

Middle 8

Fairtrade helps make it better
For poor farmers in South America
In India, and Africa
And the West Indies too
They thank you

Chorus.

We are the world, we have a vision that’s here to stay
-Key change-
We are the voice, we are the ones who support Fair-trade
Wake up the world, and tell every boy and girl
That together we are one
Change the life of everyone
Co’s we are the world

Repeat Chorus x1
