Open Your Arms


Sitting under the money tree
look for the fruits of charity
best to pick them fast for they too far gone
they grow rotten to the core on the greedy man's farm
open your moth the words don't come out
even though the thoughts in your head seem to flow
are you so afraid what everybody thinks
are you so afraid to show what you know

to get along, with your sister your brother
get along, we all the same under this shell

brother to brother and sister to sister
and people are people and...
open your arms

monkey do monkey see
why you want to upset me
monkey go monkey say
but let me live my life today
monkey hear monkey walk
monkey you so full of talk

when are we every gonna learn
to fulfill the need to be free
feel free
be free
stand free
wont need mediocrity

brother to sister and
sister to brother and
brother to brother and sister to sister
open your arms

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
