If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)" is a song written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays. It was written in 1949 in support of the progressive movement, and was first recorded by The Weavers, a folk music quartet composed of Seeger, Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, and Fred Hellerman. It was a number 10 hit for Peter, Paul and Mary in 1962 and then went to number three a year later when recorded by Trini Lopez.
Rob de Nijs (born December 26, 1942 in Amsterdam) is a Dutch actor turned singer. His career has spanned nearly five decades so far, beginning when he won a Dutch talent show in 1962 at the age of 19, which earned him a record deal. It didn't take long before he had his first big hit, which was "Ritme van de regen" (. Rhythm of the rain"), released in June 1963.
De Nijs, backed by The Lords, won a talent-contest in 1962 and released his first single in 1962, Ritme van de Regen. In 1965 De Nijs split from The Lords because they signed their own record-deal at another label; he embarked on a joint circus-tour with Johnny Lion. In 1985 De Nijs had a Christmas with the peace-anthem Alles Wat Ademt; the English version, Let Love Be The Answer, would also be recorded by US-exile singer Joe Bourne for his Bourne in Holland-album of translated covers. In 1986 De Nijs saw a dream-wish come true by releasing an album of covers from the 1950s/1960s-era; it included his version of Living Doll shortly after the Comic Relief-remake topped the charts. In 2010 De Nijs released the Eindelijk Vrij (Free At Last) which he recorded in the US. In 2012 he embarked on his 50th anniversary tour.
If I had a hammer Id hammer in the morning Id hammer in the evening All over this land Id hammer out danger Id hammer out a warning Id hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters All over this land If I had a bell Id ring it in the morning Id ring it in the evening All over this land. Id ring out danger Id ring out a warning Id ring out love between my brothers and my sisters All over this land If I had a song Id sing it in the morning Id sing it in the evening All over this land Id sing out danger Id sing out a warning Id sing out love between my brothers and my sisters.
