Six billion people

 

There are six billion people

now on the globe.

Six billion people

all needing a home.

 

Six billion people

all needing food on the table.

I hope and prey each day that

mother earth is able.

 

Six billion people

of which I am only one.

Six billion people,

O! to humanity, living under the sun.
