Sing a powerful song

Feeling a bit fragile today.
Since seeing the Saw Doctors not so long ago, Barry and I have been listening to their music, mostly in the car…..I love this song and it’s clever use of words….when we are having a hard time we told each other that we should say ‘It’s time to sing a powerful song!’……sometimes we forget but it seemed appropriate today….
Sing a powerful song
When the troubles of the whole wide world
Come knocking on your door
And there’s problems of a different kind
That you’ve never had before
When you’ve played against a gale force wind
And it changes at half time
And you feel your strength deserting you
And an emptiness inside
When there’s people that will harm you
Though you’ve done to them no wrong
It time to sing , it’s time to sing , to sing a powerful song
When they want to ruin your province
Just turn it into gold
When they think our greatest asset
Can be mined dug up and sold
When the factories are all closing
As they are in our home town
And your friends are looking out for work
That’s nowhere to be found
When the sprits they need a risn’
To be happy proud and strong
It time to sing , it’s time to sing , to sing a powerful song
(The Saw Doctors 1991)
