Beautiful Fool

(Don Henry)
Martin Luther who did you think that you were?
Appointed by some higher up
Merely mortal, your plans were unaffordable
No one wants to pay for love
 
CHORUS
Oh you beautiful fool
Swimmin up stream, kickin' up waves
Dreams weren't meant to come true
That's why they call 'em dreams
Oh you beautiful fool
 
Walter Cronkite pre-empted Disney one night
And all us kids were so upset
We thought that you were a trouble instigator
Marchin' through our T.V. set
 
(chorus)
 
BRIDGE
To fight a fight without a fist all human instinct puzzles this
How dare you threaten our existence
Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus Christ, history repeats itself so nice
Consistently we are resistant to love
 
I saw you on the black and white
With Blacks and White's applauding you
I saw you on another time
Without a sign of life in you
(chorus)

When the Solstice Comes

(Don Henry)

SolisticePic

We will gather round the burning tree
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
We will share the joy of offerings
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
 
Yuletide brings the family near
To bury bygones and to raise the brand new year
So dance and sing ‘til echoes ring around the ancient earth
And celebrate as we await light’s rebirth
 
We will gather pine and mistletoe
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
We will share the stories always told
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
 
We will respect each other’s souls
As long as brotherhood and peace are common goals
So dance and sing ‘til echoes ring around the ancient earth
And celebrate as we await love’s rebirth
 
We will gather round the burning tree
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
We will share the joy of offerings
When the Solstice comes, when the Solstice comes
