The World is Waiting for the Sunrise ()
Authors: Eugene Lockhart, Ernest Seitz; Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

Dear one, the world is waiting for the sunrise.
Ev'ry rose is covered with dew
And while the world is waiting for the sunrise
And my heart is calling you.

Dear one, the world is waiting for the sunrise.
Every little rose bud is covered with dew
And my heart is calling you
The thrush on high his sleepy mate is calling
And my heart is calling you.
