Countries, peoples across the world
Are in need of a wide, free gate
Through which noble principles,
Human values are supposed to circulate.

Trade agreements,
But other commitments
Are urgently expected
In the global scene.

Struggle for your nation
Say No to corruption
Invest in jobs and education!
 
Youngsters feel helpless
Children are starving
Diseases alarming
Yet millions... are pumped
Into pockets privileged...
