“THE WORLD IS ONE FAMILY embraces the diversity of life on this planet and how each family, large or small, is important . . . connected . . . part of the same family. The song contains messages about Conservation, about Life, and about Love. The primary theme is caring and helping each other.” ~ Lori R. Lopez

Presenting the first video release of a song written by Lori R. Lopez in 1992, sung with her two sons Noel and Rafael when they were very young and performed live together as The Fairyflies in 2020. You can find the lyrics below.

The World Is One Family

(Words & Music By Lori Lopez —1992)

 

Stop and take a look around

Remember what you see

Things will never be the same

This is history

Unless we change the way we live

And make progress differently

We’re destroying in a lifetime

Work of centuries

 

Everybody needs a place

To be safe and roam

If we poison all the seas

The fish will have no home

If we take away the trees

Birds will disappear

When we blacken every sky, goodbye

We will not be here

 

Love each other

You gotta help your brother

The world is one family

Our hope is the family

So cherish the families

Large and small

 

It could be a hill of ants

Or squirrels in a tree

It could be a cave of bats

Or friends like you and me

 

Love each other

You gotta help your brother

The world is one family

Our hope is the family

Take care of the families

Large and small

 

We can make a difference

If we try

 

The future of the world

Is in our hands today

Unless we get involved

It’ll be too late

Don’t wait for someone else

To have a bigger heart

The world belongs to everyone

Let’s do our part!

 

Plant trees, recycle please

Those are Golden Rules

Promote clean industries

Instead of bombs build schools

The greatest heritage

That you can give a child

Is a better world to live in

But the greatest gift is life

 

Love each other

Child and mother

The world is one family

Our hope is the family

So cherish the families

Large and small

 

Love each other

Child and mother

The world is one family

Our hope is the family

Take care of the families

Large and small

 

We can make a difference

You and I

The world is one family . . .

The world is one family . . .

The world is one family.
