Our Favorite Things

Lyrics by: Nora Freeman
Gaggle: NYC Metro
Tune: My Favorite Things

Clean air, clean water, a liveable planetHealthcare for all and a lot of mass transit
Enough food for everyone, that’s what we sing
These are a few of our favorite things

Union protection for ev-e-ry worker
Born here or somewhere else, why should it matter
Funding for artists and scientists too
Of our fav’rite things, these are a few

But hatred of gays, blacks and women
Makes us feel so bad
And as we keep losing our favorite things
It all makes us really MAD!

Occupy Wall Street stood up to the banksters
Who are not as nice as a mouth full of cankers
Wisconsin workers, they thrilled us to bits
But most of the time we’re scared out of our wits!

There’s unemployment, a broiling planet
And Tea Party jerks
And as we all rocket back to the 10th century
We’re screaming this really HURTS!
