[Military clip/What The World Needs Now singing in the background.]
Anybody here seen my old friend John
Can you tell me where he's gone.

[John F. Kennedy shooting documentary]
Anybody here seen my old friend Martin
Can you tell me where he's gone.
He freed lotta people
But it seems the good they die young

[Martin Luther King speech]
Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby
Can you tell me where he's gone.

[Robert Kennedy shooting documentary]
What the world needs now
Is love sweet love
No not for some
But for everyone.
