If I Was A Lonely Goatherd

from Leap Of Faith by Mint Biscuit



If I Was A Lonely Goatherd

Well I’m not a lonely goatherd, And I’m not the president
I don’t have a million dollars, I’m not counting my last cent
I’m not driving in a Cadillac, Or shoveling cement
I’m not sitting in a mansion, Or in a refugee tent
Yeah I just play the guitar, and my baby pays the rent

Well, Obama’s in the Whitehouse, but Trump is at the door
Kim Jong Un and Vladimir want to start the next World War
Bojo and the Tories, yeah we’ve seen it all before
Yeah and no-one really knows what the Europeans are for
But it’s a fine fine day, to start all over again
There won’t be a better day, to start all over again

And if I believed in Santa, I’d grab a pen and write
Bring peace to all the Syrians, and stop the endless fight
Bring joy to all the children who cry throughout the night
They deserve to live in happiness, they deserve a better life
And it’s a fine fine day, to start all over again
There’ll never be a better day to start all over again

Well if we can’t learn to put all our jealousies aside
To put our faith in Jesus, and go along for the ride
To learn to love each other and for what we have inside
To work out how best to live, before we all must die
We won’t get a better day, to start all over again
No we’ll never see a better day, to start all over again
