-3*7 7 -6* 7
If I ruled the world,
7 -7* 7* 7 -6
ev-’ry day would be
-5* -6 -6 7 -6
the first day of spring
-6 7* 7 -6 -5*
Ev-’ry heart would have
-5-5* -5* -6 -5*
a new song to sing
-5* -6 -5* -5* 7 -7*
And we’d sing of the joy
7 7* -7* 7* 7 -6
ev-’ry morn-ing would bring

-3*7 7 -6* 7
If I ruled the world,
7 -7* 7* 7 -6
ev-’ry man would be
-5* -6 -6 7 -6
as free as a bird,
-6 7* 7 -6 -5*
Ev-’ry voice would be
-5 -5* -5* -6 -5*
a voice to be heard
-5* -6 -5* -5* 7 -7* 7
Take my word we would treas-ure
7* -7* 7* 7 -6
each day that oc-curred

7 7 5 -5 6 7 7 -6 -5
My world would be a beau-ti-ful place
-5 6 -6 7
Where we would weave
-3* 5 6 7 -7*
such won-der-ful dreams
-7* 7 -5* -6
My world would wear
7 -7* -7* 7* -6
a smile on its face
7 -6 -5* -6 7 -6 -5*
Like the man in the moon has
7 -7* -9 9
when the moon beams

-7*7 7 -6* 7
If I ruled the world
7 -7* 7* 7 -6
ev-’ry man would say
-5* -6 -6 7 -6
the world was his friend
-6 7* 7 -6 -5*
There’d be hap-pi-ness
-5 -5* -5* -6 -5*
that no man could end
-5* -6 -5* -5* 7 7 -7* 8 -7*
No, my friend, not if I ruled the world
-6 7 7* -6 7 7* -6 7*
Ev-’ry head would be held up high
7 7* -7* 7
There’d be sun-shine
7* -7* 8 8* -7*
in ev-’ry-one’s sky
7* 7 7* 7* -7* 8
If the day ev-er dawned
-9 -9* 9 -9 -9*
when I ruled the world
