Lyrics

NO SONG

No song can keep a child at play,
Safe from the evils of the day.
No song can keep children from harm
Or make abuse a false alarm.

No song can restore families
When drugs have brought them to their knees.
No song can save a wayward son
Or undo all the damage done.

No song in the whole universe
Can ever lift this awful curse.
These times are tough and getting worse,
So, hide your wallet – hide your purse.

No song can wipe out poverty,
Keep the world from going hungry.
No song can shelter homeless men
Or give them dignity again.

No song can blot out bigotry
Or make all men equally free.
No song can make men color blind
Or open hearts and open minds.

No song in the whole universe
Can ever lift this awful curse.
These times are tough and getting worse,
So, hide your wallet – hide your purse.

No song can stop that TB wheeze
Or slow down a single disease.
No song carries the AIDS answer
Or comes close to curing cancer.

No song can bring foes together
Or help change the warming weather.
No song can force all wars to cease
Or shape a brave new world at peace.

No song in the whole universe
Can ever lift this awful curse.
These times are tough and getting worse,
So, hide your wallet – hide your purse.

Guess I was right all along:
I’m no singer, and this is “No Song.”
