Parole e musica di Malvina Reynolds
Canzone inedita
Of all the children in the world,
Itself the world is my special care,
It's being raped by an engineer,
And a billionaire,
And I'm standing there.

Strontium ninety in the rivers,
PCB on the land
And the children of the people
Cannot stand.

Strontium ninety in the rivers
And the fish all die,
And the birds that eat them
Cannot fly.

Strontium ninety in the rivers,
A film of crude on the sea,
And the little kids of Tokyo
Have car exhaust to breathe.

I would like to sing a bright song,
A song to make you smile,
But the earth is dying,
Earth, my child.

Of all the children in the world,
Itself the world is my special care,
It's being raped by an engineer,
And a billionaire,
And I'm standing there.
