Yes To the World

Listen Now!

Yes To the World
00:00 / 01:14


Sing Along Now!


I say yes to the world, there are so many ways
In any language, saying yes will mean that it's okay
I say YES!

The French say oui (wee)
In Spain say si (see)
In Kenya, they say dio (dee-o), that's Swahili
The Russians say da
The Germans say ya
In Mandarin Chinese say schee
If you're Filipino, you say opo (oh-po)
If you're Navaho, say Ho
Speak Hindi in India, yes is gee huh
The Zulu in South Africa say yehbo (yea-bo)

In English, say yes
Japanese say hai (hi)
In Israel, the Hebrew word is ken
Say yes to the world, then you can relate
Language is how we communicate

Yes to the world there are so many ways
In any language saying yes will mean that it's okay
I say YES!
