Sixty Children

Heres a song of poverty
Ill play for you a while
Just three minutes is all it takes
And sixty children die

We sing our songs right from the heart
The sentiment's no lie
But when we're done the fact remains
Sixty children die

Its not for lack of funds or food
That starves them of their share
But fear and greed from comfort zones
Our inability to care

And in the end what I can say
Just who the h*ll am I
To sing a song of sixpence
While sixty children die

Works for me - not a word or a sentiment misplaced....

I can see this as a dark, finger-picked minor chord piece for the verses, and a heavier guitar coming in for the longer bridge...perhaps you'd like to let us all know what music you've got in mind...

:D :D :D

to be quite honest I hadn't really given it much thought, but I like your idea, cheers.

Pbee,

Very nice!!

I was also inspired to write about the children but you took a
much different approach .

The final chorus says it all
And in the end what I can say
Just who the h*ll am I
To sing a song of sixpence
While sixty children die

wow!!....its the type of song that would have rounded off live 8 nicely. A way of saying that it doesnt matter how much we scream about the subject, we need to turn our words to actions.

Nice song

Thanks for your comments.
Ive changed the song slightly to give it a more general appeal. Check out the mp3 mix and let me know what you think.
