Unique and precious
Is each boy and girl
Every single one
All around the world
Some are normal
Whatever that means
But so many others
Have much greater needs
There was a place
Known as Willowbrook
A place of mis’ry
Where we didn’t have to look
Instead of school
It’s where THOSE kids went
But the ones from rich families
To private schools were sent
Education is a human right
Into darkness, it shines a light
Let’s meet all the needs of all of our kids
Brilliant, average, special ed
Disabled folks need some assistance,
humanity comes at a price
Now Arnie would cut that assistance,
Does he have a heart made of ice?
Don't cut, don't cut!
Don't cut the budget we need, we need!
Don't take, don't take!
Don't take home health care away!
We a-all are differently abled,
the safety net could be for you
So Arnie, please think before cutting,
some day you could need some help too!
We Aa-ll are in this together,
who knows what the future will bring?
We know that we must stand together,
so join with the Grannies and sing!
Note: Arnie refers to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was California governor when we sang this in front of the Federal Building in San Francisco in '09.
