The Lyrics

Imagine all the people, living life in peace... "If cows could only fly" is an adynaton in my native Finnish, implying an impossibility or futile speculations.
We finally have peace on Earth,
this pact is binding all its worth
No one is starving anymore,
No one is poor nor sore
We tear the walls down everywhere
we all are neighbours good and dear
No one does drugs nor alcohol
so content we are all
We have just one God up above
his beard is white like turtledove
In Him it's easy to believe
as he offers all relieve

This all could be so real (yeah, yeah)
if cows could only fly...

Now people all are beautiful
and good and fair and succesful
and lions sleep along the sheep
what we sow we all shall reap
Resources are shared fair and square
and cheese from Moon we all do share
We all are equal finally
so simple, you can see
Molested children are no more
their dreams are no more crushed, for sure
and we all do sleep our nights in peace
with angels' care in ease

This all could be so real (yeah, yeah)
if cows could only fly...

This all could be so real (yeah, yeah)
if cows could only fly...

This all could be so real (yeah, yeah)
if cows could only fly...

Welcome back. Noble sentiments. Reminds me a bit of Anne Murray's "A Little Good News". An obscure U.S. sports metaphor "When The Lights Go On At Wrigley Field" (the only Major League baseball stadium without lights for night games, at least in the past). Glad we didn't have to wait for cows or pigs to fly to have you return to AIR.
