Rattling around in my brain...

Do you ever have an earworm visitation?

this one has been in my head today...from my childhood

Kingston Trio The Merry Minuet lyrics-you can hear it here

Sheldon Harnick

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 tranquil and thankful and proud
for 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.

Kingston Trio The Merry Minuet lyrics
