I have two memories of this song- one is- it was a Coke commercial- ‘Buy The World A Coke’- and then with the commercial lyrics dropped songs by both The Hillside Singers and The New Seekers. The other memory is- back in elementary school at the time- we had a traveling music teacher who would come in once a week on a Friday morning – always a highlight of the week because we got out of doing regular studies for a period- and for a few weeks the music teacher taught us to sing this song. Kind of a lame song but it is kinda catchy.
