A Little Good News-Ann Murray (Original 1983 Video)
This morning after my morning meeting I stopped as I usually do in the Goodwill in Clinton Conn. to check out some CDs and I came across Ann Murray's recording of "A little good news today." Its a 1989 recording... One of my problems is I try to stay away from all the bad news on that TV and radio. I don't watch or listen to ether. By the way. Don't buy CDs or movies in any of the stores. At any Goodwill they are a $1.99. Track 6 on her album "Greatest Hits - Volume II, has this song... I cried on the way home listening to it.... The words are below...
I rolled out this mornin' the kids had the mornin' news show on Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon. Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy.
There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band. One more sad story's one more than I can stand. Just once how I'd like to see the headline say, "Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain. We sure could use a little good news today.
I'll come home this evenin', I'll bet that the news will be the same. Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane. How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair. And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care. Whoa, tell me nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA. We sure could use a little good news today
