song for theme #47A: Attitudinal Fix

ďStingyĒ by Stephen P. Cook

sung to the tune of ďCloudyĒ by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel

Stingy1

More hoarding, less giving I call it stingy

Itís not the way I want the world to be

Greed and giving just donít mix

We need an attitudinal fix

Not money gaming tricks

Those with gold rule or Golden Rule take your pick

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

Wonít you come out into the light?

 

Stealing

Taking what youíve no right to thatís stealing

Itís not the way I want the world to be

Rip-off and right-on just donít mix

We need an attitudinal fix

Not pirate plundering tricks

Me first, our childrenís future take your pick

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

Wonít you come out into the light?

 

Lying

Saying what you know is false thatís lying

Itís not the way I want the world to be

Uncouth and truth just donít mix

We need an attitudinal fix

Not muddying the waters tricks

Bullshitting or enlightening take your pick

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

 

Wonít you come out into the light?

 

Prejudice

Not giving someone a chance thatís prejudice

Itís not the way I want the world to be

Not my kind and kindness just donít mix

We need an attitudinal fix

Not ethnocentric tricks

Racist or color blind justice take your pick

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

Wonít you come out into the light?

 

Bad Karma

Bad comes back to bite thatís bad karma

Itís not the way I want the world to be

Hard knocks, soft kisses just donít mix

We need an attitudinal fix

Not hard sell huckster tricks

Wham bam or thank you, maíam take your pick

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

Wonít you come out into the light?

 

So my friend please donít lie

And letís divide that pie

Give the olí Golden Rule a try

Lets remake the world, not let our dreams die

 

Hello whatís right

I havenít seen you through the dark night

Wonít you come out into the light?
