SAY NOW - Allegra Broughton & Sam Page ©2017
Say now Whatever happened to kindness
How’d we end up in this big mess Why is everybody so hard?
It looks like everyone has their fists up
No more kissing to make up and start over again
Hup four, three and two
It’s monkey see and monkey do
Close your ears and stop your mind
Step in lockstep, fall in line
Say now Whatever happened to reason
You know it’s not treason to compromise
How ‘bout we meet halfway
Hear what each other has to say Try to work it out
Liar, liar pants on fire
Hang it all out on the telephone wire
We’re stuck in the schoolyard counting’ coup
If you rat on me, I’ll rat on you
Say now Whatever happened to patience
I think Homosapiens has blown a fuse
Can you remember a sweeter time
When you kick back and unwind and let the river roll by
Two, four, six and eight who should we annihilate?
You don’t like me and I don’t like you Poison, bombs or just voodoo?
Say now Whatever happened to love, I’ve
Got a feeling that right now, it’s the thing to do
You can’t find a better solution
To war and pollution and loneliness, too.
Say now Say now Say-hey-hey Say now
Say now Say hey hey now Say now, watchya gonna do
