Mean Things Happening In This World
Look at the big war 'crost th' Sea
Well, I'm sure that you'll agree
There's mean things a happenin' in this world

I ain't Got A Cryin' Dime
And I'm that away all th' time
There's mean things a happenin' in this world
There's mean things a happenin' in this world

Every thing is leased and leant
To the government it has went
And th' soldier in th' war
Don't know what he's fighting for
And the tank's are rollin' on
To th' burstin' of the bombs
Brother and Sister gettin' killed
For a green back dollar bill

There's mean things happenin' in this world

Man and Woman lend an ear
To the war that's drawin' near
You are spied on by Police
If you speak the word of peace
If you talk 'bout brotherly love
Back in jail you'll get shoved
O' I'd ruther'd fight for peace
Than this crooked lend an lease

There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world
There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world
There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world

Na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na

Folks wants Peace for Miles Aroun'
From new york city down
But we're gonna save our nation
With a peace mobilization

The cops turn on the heat
If you talk peace on the street
Organize my Brother and Sister
And we'll win this world again, This world again

There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world
There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world
There's mean things a happenin' in this world/happenin' in this world
Na na na na na There's mean things a happenin' in this world
Na na na na na There's mean things a happenin' in this world
Na na na na na There's mean things a happenin' in this world
Na na na na na There's mean things a happenin' in this world
Na na na na na There's mean things a happenin' in this world
