Take Me to the World (Streisand Barbra)

Let me see the world with clouds Take me to the world Out where I can push through crowds Take me to the world A world that smiles With streets instead of aisles Where I can walk for miles with you Take me to the world that’s real Show me how it’s done Teach me how to laugh, to feel Move me to the sun Just hold my hand whenever we arrive Take me to a world where I can be alive Him: The world is better here. I know I’ve seen them both. Let me see the world that smiles Him: A poet doesn’t count for much out there Take me to the world Him: We’d be cold and hungry in the winter Somewhere I can walk for miles Him: A shabby room with cracked plaster Take me to the world Him: You couldn’t get a job With all around things growing in the ground Him: We’d end up hating each other. We’d have fights. You’d cry. Where birds that make a sound are birds Let me see the world that’s real Him: I have seen the world Show me how it’s done Him: And it’s mean and ugly Teach me how to laugh, to feel Him: We could laugh together Move me to the sun Him: Stay here with me Just hold my hand whenever we arrive Him: Stay here. I love you. But we’re happy here Let it be a world with you Him: Stay with me Any other world with you Take me to a world where I can be alive Do you want the world ? Well then, you shall have the world Ask me for the world again You shall have the world A world of skies That’s bursting with surprise To open up your eyes for joy We shall see the world come true We shall have the world I won’t be afraid with you We shall have the world You’ll hold my hand and know you’re not alone You shall have the world to keep Such a lovely world you’ll weep We shall have the world forever for our own
