    I've Been Such A Lucky Fellow

    If I should die tomorrow I've had a happy life

    And every morning after six as a free man I awake read more »

    I No Longer Wish To Change The World

    The thoughts of changing the World I no longer entertain
    The dreams I had of peace on Earth with me did not remain

    I want to be a better person now just that and nothing more. read more »

    None More Selfish Than I

    Some humans are such selfish creatures and none more selfish than I
    The World revolves around me and praise of self I do enjoy

    Taxed

    Taxed in our groceries and taxed in our pay

    Are We So Blind

    You look at him the one we chose to lead

    Their Great Lust For Life

    In life for many every day there's some battle to fight

    That's Life One Must Suppose

    At the bottom of the social rank and low in self esteem
    That's where the haves want to keep the have nots or that's how it does seem
    For every new member of the millionaires club there is more poverty
    And that people of malnutrition die does not make sense to me, read more »

    In Every City, Town And Village

    In every City, Town and Village the haves and have nots reside
    But even the poorest of the poor have got their sense of pride
    And it must be soul destroying for them to have to beg to stay alive
    But pride has to take second place to the will to survive. read more »

    Many Must Grow Poorer

    Millions will go to bed hungry tonight that does seem sad to say
    And many of them will not wake again for to see another day

    Whilst billions in war by Governments are spent read more »
