The News Out of Our World

 

I woke up Sunday morning, turned the television on

The new out of Kuwait was that the Gulf War had begun

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

I woke up Monday morning, turned the television on

The news out of Yemen was the Cole had been blown up

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

Season change, the rivers roll along

Every man much search his heart

Try to understand

As for me well I’ll be praying here

 

I woke up Tuesday morning, turned the television on

The news out of New York was that the towers had come down

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

I woke up Wednesday morning, turned the television on

The news out of Iraq was that we’d started “shock and awe”

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

Season change, the rivers roll along

Wise men travel back to work

Helps them carry on

As for me well I’ll be singing here

 

I woke up Thursday morning, turned the television on

The news out of London was four bombs had just gone off

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

I woke up Friday morning, turned the television on

People every where were wondering what the hell was wrong

And the world just needs a little peace tonight

 

Season change, the rivers roll along

Everyone must find a path

That’s for you to choose

As for me well I’ll be dreaming here

 

I woke up Saturday morning, turned the television on

The news out of New Orleans was Katrina’s bearing down

And the world just needs a little peace tonight
