Hands Across The Water: “Free The World”

Hands Across The Water: “Free The World”

~~A reprint of Marie Tierney’s post on FB, posted by Maggie on November 18, 2020 in From the Editors

I think Marie wants you to sing this along to that pretentious tune (Feed The World) Do they Know It’s Christmas Time done by a plethora of self-important pop stars for “Band Aid” 1984

From Marie Tierney @ Facebook: Free The World (Should We Doubt It’s Lockdown Time?)

It’s Lockdown time and we are made to feel afraid
At Lockdown time, we banish light and we let in shade
And in our world of crazy we can spread a lying ploy
That a virus rules the world at Christmas time
But say a prayer, pray for the stupid ones
who at Lockdown time they’ll grass when you’re having fun
There’s police outside your window
to keep your rule of six
and the only truth that’s flowing
is a counter science mix.
And the honest tongues that sting here
say the plague’s not in this town
Well, tonight we’ll hide instead
in fake lockdown
And there won’t be joy in Western lands this Christmas time
The greatest gift we”ll get this year is strife
Where no-one ever questions
Governments’ dubious suggestions.
Should we doubt it’s Lockdown time at all?
Here’s to you
Lost your job and civil rights
Here’s to them
Weird that China’s done alright.
Should we doubt it’s Lockdown time at all?
Free the world
Let them know Lockdown’s been lifted
Free the world
Let them know Lockdown’s been lifted
Free the world…

As they used to say in Smash Hits “ad-lib to fade”.

Happy COVID Thanksgiving, everyone!
