The World Today
I wonder why this world is sweet Hell I wonder why this world is in uproar Everyday you read about somethin' new They're fightin' all over the world People fightin' all over the world Race against race, they're fightin' everyday I wonder when, disaster comin' to a end I wonder when, I wonder when This nightmare comin' to a end I can't believe it's gonna last always And every time I pick up a paper I always read bad news And every time I pick up a paper I always read bad news I wonder when this nightmare is gonna end You find so many young people They're fightnin' in every town, on campus You find so many young people They're fightnin' in every town, on campus I don't know, don't know, what they're right or wrong But they're kind of fightin' for their rights, yeah, yeah, yeah The old people leave the young kids alone Let them run their own lives, yeah, yeah The old folks leave the young kids alone And let them run their own life It's a brand new world today Look at here now, you'll find some of them old people They're not hip to the modern days They want their kids to live like they live But no, them days are gone It's a brand new world One way to solve their problem, it takes time The old coots die out and leave it to the young kids Be a beautiful world and then There won't be no fighting on campus any more 'Cause my kids and your kids, when they grow up and get drunk They'll understand, all old coots are gone in their grave But as long as they live there's gonna be figitin' in every town Hey, hey, in every campus, the young kids walkin' out Hey, hey, hey, hey, the old folks when they're gone, when they're gone It'll be a better world to live in Couple a young kids is the world today Thank you
