Not The Way We Were Taught

Lyrics by: Rose DeShaw
Gaggle: Kingston
Tune: White Wings

What if some national leaderswant to stamp their big fat feet
all over our world?
So other cultures, religions
and races and voices no longer are heard?
What if the Muslims and Hindus
and Buddhists and Shintos and all others too
end up in the very same heaven
we were taught was reserved
just for me and for you?
What if it does make a difference
that one single person will stand and say no?
What if a bad thing can’t happen because all
of these persons won’t let it be so?
