Words and Music by Arlo Guthrie

I'd like to tell you a story
For just a minute or two
And if you don't want to hear it
Just be quiet if some others do
I'd like to get me a satellite
Way up over the world
And say hello everybody and you too girl

This is me your friend A.G.
Speaking to you from above
Here in the land of America
Sending everybody love
I'd like to tell the whole world
In every foreign land
Today looks like a day for holding hands

Today ain't nothing special
It's just an average day
But we could get together
And watch the children play
Tomorrow will be soon enough
To return to blood and guns
Let's just take the day off and have some fun

Today we tell the hungry
That food is on the way
Today we tell the sick ones
That soon you'll be okay
Today we tell the prisoners
That soon you will be free
Don't no one take this microphone from me

And while I'm up here honey
I got a message for you
I know I've got just a little while
So let me end it through
The whole world's dancing 'round and 'round
Like a universe of fools
And ain't it wonderful to see
A day that breaks the rules
Like a day that's made for me and you
Oh ain't it wonderful to see
A day that breaks the rules
Like a day that's made for me and you
