Perry Como In Person - 1970
 
If I Had a Hammer
 
If I had a hammer 
I would hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
all over this land! 
 
I'd hammer out the danger 
hammer out a warning
I'd hammer 'bout the love between 
my brothers and my sisters
all, all over this land  . . .
all over this land 
 
If I had a bell 
I would ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening
all over this land! 
 
I'd ring out the danger 
ring out a warning
I'd ring 'bout the love between 
my brothers and my sisters
all, all over this land  . . .
all over this land 
 
< instrumental break > 
 
If I had a song 
I would sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
all over this land! 
 
I'd sing out the danger 
sing out a warning
I'd sing about my brothers and my sisters
all, all over this land  . . .
all over this land 
 
Well, I got a hammer, and I got my bell 
and I got a song to sing all over this land!
It's the hammer of justice! 
It's the bell of freedom! 
It's a song to sing 
about my brothers and my sisters 
all, all over this land!
 
. . . all over this land, all over this land, 
. . . all over this land!
