Lyrics and Music by Rob Lincoln

"We Can Sing is perhaps the most idealistic song I ever wrote. Originally an anti-nuclear power environmental anthem, now updated for global warming

Breast-Cancer-Prevention-Avoid-Air-Pollution


This song is about taking action on the environment. Never played it to anyone and it was so outdated with the "no nukes" line I just changed it to an "let's end global warming" line and now it seems a bit more relevant. I try more harmony on this one.
Listener comments have included: " 'World is in our hands' has really nice harmony. Somehow I'm thinking it needs a different vocal sound maybe Indigo Girls. Words on on target."
We can sing - over the warm green fields
We can sing - through the cities of our land
We can sing - down by the old dirt road
We can sing - the world is in our hands

I want to breathe the clean air
I want to drink cool crystal waters
It's time to lift up our voices
For our sons and daughters

We must sing - to save our warm green fields
We must sing - to save our golden land
We must sing - over our video nation
We must sing - the world is in our hands

I want to breathe the clean air
I want to drink cool crystal waters
It's time to lift up our voices
For our sons and daughters..

The children cry -but we can sing for food to feed them
The leaders lie - but we can drown their voices too
It's you and I - don't let the cynics deceive you
We can sing - the world is in our hands

I want to breathe the clean air
I want to drink cool crystal waters
It's time to lift up our voices
For our sons and daughters

Some say we're naïve - but so were all the dreamers
You've got to believe - before you can do
What was meant to be - is what we reach to change now
We can bring - the world into our hands..

Oh we can bring – if we can sing
Oh we can sing – and we can bring

I want to breathe the clean air
I want to drink cool crystal waters
It's time to stop global warming
For our sons and daughters

We can sing…
