The n-page News, RIP

Posted by vlorbik on October 13, 2012

I can’t post to this old webpage (not really a “blog” as such) anymore. I used to put lyrics there. Looks like I’ll be starting over with a new archive somewhere else.

I haven’t brought back Open A Vein… but neither have I done any of the redesign for the next blog that’ll go here. So here are some lyrics anyhow.

The world is ours
Not the presidents’
Of the corporations
For the one-percents
We all want freedom
Let’s go and get some
This world belongs to you and me

This world ain’t their world
This world is our world
And it’s a hot and cold world
A sweet and sour world
It’s the world we share, boy
Only one that’s there, girl
This world belongs to you and me

This world is our world
This world ain’t their world
Cause it’s a life-is-good world
Not an I-don’t-care world
And before we know, dear
We’ll have to leave here
But this world belongs to you and me

As I was working
With my friend Woody
He became immortal
And I asked how could he
His voice was ringin’
Said “keep on singin’ ”
This world belongs to you and me

(Singalong finish on Guthrie’s lyrics)

I world-premiered this version at Madeline’s church a few weeks back. The crowd sung along, too, by golly. It was great.
