A little good news..

I rolled out this morning Kids had the mornin’ news show on Bryant Gumbel was talkin’ ’bout the fighting in Lebanon Some senator was squawkin’ ’bout the bad economy It’s gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy

There’s a local paper rolled up in a rubber band One more sad story’s one more than I can stand Just once how I’d like to see the headline say “Not much to print today, can’t find nothin’ bad to say”, because

Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD’ed, nobody burned a single buildin’ down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today

I’ll come home this evenin’ I’ll bet that the news will be the same Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care Whoa, tell me

Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA We sure could use a little good news today

Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD’ed, nobody burned a single buildin’ down

Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today

The above is from a song by Anne Murray called: a little good news. It’s a really great song that is especially relevant in this dark time the world is living in.
