lyrics

If I Was A Lonely Goatherd (2022 version)

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, Joe Biden’s in the Whitehouse, now Trump is out 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 the Ukranians, 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
No we'll never see a better day, to start all over again
