Movement for the Common Man Songtext

Children of the land don't wear a frown upon your face
Come on and join your hands, we're all part of the human race
The music is here to let you leave your fears behind
Come on along, don't get me wrong and see what you might a find
Children of the land
Children of the land
Don't misunderstand
You're all children of the land
Don't trust anyone else to run your life and set your goals
You gotta be able to live with yourself when you are getting old
Others are getting blamed for messing your life around
It's your own fault if you complain for letting it get you down
Children of the land
Children of the land
Don't misunderstand
You're all children of the land
Children - come on children now
Children - yeah
Children - I said children yeah
Children - alrighty now
Children - yeah yeah yeah
Children - of the land
Children - of the land
Children - I said of the land

Yeah well you see now, I'm a depression baby
And I remember the WPA
I think we just start the same thing again and get those people out workin' there
why not?
Is it too menial for someone to sweep the street?
And if you get enough money where you don't have to work
Let's face it, who wants to work?
There's no reason why anybody at five generations of people gotta' be on welfare
I had one fella get in, no offence to you gentlemen,
he had long hair and a beard,
and uh, I told him
"You better go home and take a bath"
He had B/O so bad it was terrible
I said "you might be educated", but uh, "did your parents tell you to go dirty"?
See the latest issue
Hard up, see
Chicago scene
Kids now a days, that's the whole thing
Too much money, they got too much money
They don't have to struggle and work for things
Like when I was growing up had to do
And I was lucky if I got the job delivering hats at a hat store for 25 cents per
hat
Too much money today is with the young kids
Everything is handed to them and that's why they're the way they are

Another new day takes up on him
A fanfare wakes the land
The naked life just a shinin' down
At the dawn of the common man
Outside in the madding crowd
He laughs along the way
Traffic city, what a pity
It dosen't have a word to say
Troubled people, billions of people
They can't seem to understand
The ringing ears are unable to hear
The sounds of the natural plan
Yeah yeah yeah

Morning sunshine
On carpets of green
Cascades of water
Are flowing endlessly
Here in the morning light
We spent a holiday
Here in the morning
At Mother Nature's Matinee
Here in the morning
At Mother Nature's Matinee
Here in the morning
At Mother Nature's Matinee

End
