Continuing the Sounds on Thursday blog post series with the New-Topical-Song ‘Talkin’ ’bout A Small Planet For The Free’ by Michel Montecrossa.
Talkin’ ’bout A Small Planet For The Free
Come gather ‘round me people and a story I will tell about a small planet all of you know well. This planet is called earth and there we come to birth.
The earth since long is rollin’ through endless time and space. She could be a pretty planet for the people to be free. This planet we call earth and there we come to birth.
But what happened to the earth, made it into a dark place, brought torture, death and rape, not peace and love to feel great? What happened to earth, the place of our birth?
My child, remember this: When there’s someone hungry in the night or cryin’ for a mother and a last good-bye don’t turn away on this planet small, lend a helping hand and be one big soul.
All the bankas and gangstas on the whole wide earth are no match for a man honest, true and brave on this planet named earth, the place of our birth.
All the leaders and the wealthy are as good as their humanity and their willingness to help the people when their hearts are sad and broken. For that I want to be here on that planet given to the free.
