Pete Seeger

Where have all the flowers gone? Long time passing. Where have all the flowers gone? Long time ago.
Where have all the flowers gone? Young girls picked them, ev'ry one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

Where have all the young girls gone? Long time passing. Where have all the young girls gone? Long time ago.
Where have all the young girls gone? Gone to young men ev'ry one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

Where have all the young men gone? Long time passing. Where have all the young men gone? Long time ago.
Where have all the young men gone? Gone to soldiers ev'ry one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

Where have all the soldiers gone? Long time passing. Where have all the soldiers gone? Long time ago.
Where have all the soldiers gone? Gone to graveyards, ev'ry one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

Where have all the graveyards gone? Long time passing. Where have all the graveyards gone? Long time ago.
Where have all the graveyards gone? Gone to flowers, ev'ry one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

    We will continue on the cycle of reincarnation if we continue to live from fear based decisions. We are not learning. xxx

    The cycle of life will need to continue for us until we stand for the belief that love provides all and we don't have to give our power away.
