Kingston Trio The Merry Minuet Lyrics

Last updated: 03/16/2014 12:32:20 AM

They're rioting in Africa
They're starving in Spain
There's hurricanes in Florida
And Texas needs rain.

The whole world is festering
with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans
The Germans hate the Poles.

Italians hate Yugoslavs,
South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don't like
anybody very much!

But! We can be thankful
and tranquil and proud
that man's been endowed
with a mushroom-shaped cloud.

And we know for certain
That some lovely day
Someone will set the spark off
and we will all be blown away!

They're rioting in Africa
There's strife in Iran.
What nature doesn't do to us
Will be done by our fellow man.
Thanks to for submitting The Merry Minuet Lyrics.
