Lyrics
The Children’s Song W&M Franciscus Henri
(Orient pacific music –Alberts)

Every body’s having fun
Every body’s got a gun

I’m told that guns will make us free
Why are they pointing them at me

Daddy joined the NRA
The day that mummy ran away

Grand pa died in Vietnam
Daddy in Afghanistan
I told they died to make me free
I think they’re blaming it on me

They’re dropping bombs for liberty
I hope they don’t drop one on me

Every one wants love and peace
Can I have some if I say please?

I don’t know about the rich
But the poor are living in a ditch

Now it’s time for me to quit
I thank Christ I’m not a kid.

You sound a lot younger than I remember, but I have been away a while... Keyboard line is good - is that playing the iPad? Would be good to do the song with a children's choir, albeit difficult to organise. A powerful and confronting message.

Too funny :)) Great use of sounds and effects. Sounds vaguely like the fish head song from the Demento days.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks
Hey Patricia Girl nice to hear from you. Demento is right. I,m not sure how well this is going over.....
it's meant to be funny but also a social comment. We here in Oz are startled by the gun debate in the U,S
I hope the song says it all. Over a decade ago an idiot shot a whole lot of people and the government banned private ownership of guns . without good reason and a permit you can't have one. I guess we are now free to stab each other. " every body's got a knife, it's you're money or your life"
