The Freedom To Say No
By Grover's Mill
I don't mind if the sun doesn't shine.
- I’ll dance in the rain.
I don’t care if the stocks they rise or if they fall.
- Let ‘em fall.
I ain’t scared of misfortune and Murphy’s law.
- Murphy was an insurance salesman!
It doesn’t bother me that I’ve got no insurance at all.
- I won’t live my life in fear.
As long as we’re together we’ll be alright,
Coz together we’re much stronger than apart (o my people).
And the ones I call my people are the human race,
Coz it’s a crime to raise up one part while the rest of us aren’t safe.
I don’t mind if the sun doesn’t shine.
All I need is that twinkle in your eye.
And I won’t fit into the divide and fall,
Coz I’m free to be anything at all.
And I won’t listen when they tell me how to live.
I can see so many alternatives.
N’ all our leaders, well, you know where they can go.
Because I still have the freedom to say no.
As long as we’re together we can be alright,
Coz together we’re much stronger than apart.
And the present market system must be changed or replaced.
With a world that’s more humane and does not fear or make waste.
And that’s Participatory Economics.
Are you alright, are you alright?
