lyrics

Save the Arts, Cut the War
by Richard Garvey (Oct. 2008)

D A Bm G
Each child paints
With creative innocence
This unjust loss
When we send them out to fight
Until nobody finger paints, anymore

AD
Save the arts, cut the war
Save the arts, cut the war

Each child sings
Joyful songs
Until we silence them
Forget those melodies
No more harmonies, anymore

Save the arts, cut the war
Save the arts, cut the war

Each child dances
Freely moving
Until we sit them down
“Operate like machinery”
Til nobody dances anymore

CD, CD Bm G
Let the children dream
Spare a life
Create a masterpiece
Go to the ballet
Or the symphony
Save the arts, cut the war
Save the arts, cut the war
Save the arts, cut the war
Save the arts, cut the war
