Sunshine, blue skies, Little bit of paradise, I’m just strollin’ in the park, Down by the riverside. (repeat line)

I see Grandma an’ Grandpa, Jivin' with their walkin' sticks, People shoppin’, young folk talkin’,
Freddie’s got his dancin’ shoes! (repeat line)
Feelin’ alive in the Ci'tay of Peace,
There’s a beautiful vibe, in the Ci'tay of Peace.

Blended people, blended lives,
Blended dreams that heal the eyes,
Makin’ space on the People Mover,
So everyone can catch a ride! (repeat line)

Feelin’ alive in the Ci'tay of Peace,
People not walls, make the Ci'tay of Peace.
Bridge:     So take me higher to the Ci'tay of Peace ….

higher and higher to the Ci'tay of Peace!

Green earth, clean air,
Healthy food, grown local,
People who thrive, not just survive,
Workin’ for a livin’ wage. (repeat line)

Feelin’ alive in the Ci'tay of Peace,
Prosperity thrives in the Ci'tay of Peace.
(Musical interlude)
From a village in Botswana,
To a Polynesian Island town,
And your town, everywhere a Ci'tay of Peace,
Anywhere peace is found. (repeat line)

Feelin’ alive in the Ci'tay of Peace,
There’s a beautiful vibe, in the Ci'tay of Peace.

So take me higher, to the Ci'tay of Peace.
Take me higher and higher, to the Ci'tay of Peace.
