LISTEN TO THE BIRDS

Listen to the birds

can you hear them sing?

Don’t they know anything?

Look at all the children

can you see them play?

Don’t they know what’s coming?

***

Look at all the young men

training in the fields

Now it’s for real

Look at all the women

climbing up the pole

So many hands to hold

***

Look at all the fishes

swimming in the sea

so many there for you and me

Listen to the birds

can you hear them sing?

Don’t they know anything?

***

And don’t it make you want to cry

and don’t it make you want to fight

to break a whole lotta wrong

for a little piece of right?
