Songs About Everything
Written and Sung by John Primm
Throw This Thought Away
OK - now here's a real downer number, listing all that's wrong
in the world and in the final line acknowledging that no one will
give my thoughts any attention. Bah-Humbug!
Today the world is set on fire
With war and lust and strong desire
And men and women and rats expire
To be buried in the ground.
Just look around and you will see
How men kill men contemptuously
And preachers say continuously
He's truly a great man.
Men hate the men who walk the Earth
And hate the girls that gave them birth.
Has no one in this world some worth?
Some say that Jesus did.
Can some man try to change the minds
Of fellow men who are out of line?
Are men so stubborn all the time?
Or have they a hidden conscience?
I'd like to think that men are good
And praise the Lord and knock on wood
But have I only misunderstood
Is there any hope?
Hope is all we have I think
It makes us strong while on the brink
Of life and death - the only link
Of this world and the next.
So now I have expressed my fears
Of what I have seen throughout the years
So now go out and drink your beers
And throw this thought away.
