One Big Family

by Rukhsana Khan 

Everyone walking on the face of the earth 

Came from one woman and man 

So why should we fight, we should be making peace 

And doing all the good that we can. 

One big family, 

One big family, 

Let’s live together in harmony, 

We’re one big family. 

Whether we’re from the north or south 

From the east or west or in between 

We all know what love is about 

And it hurts when people are mean. 

One big family, 

One big family, 

Let’s live together in harmony, 

We’re one big family.
