Dialogue from Chicago

Part 1                                     Dialogue – parts one and two

 

Are you optimistic ‘bout the way that things are going?

                  No, I never ever think of it at all

 

Don’t you ever worry, when you see what’s going down?

                   Well, I try to mind my business, that is, no business at all.

 

When it’s time to function as a feeling human being

Will your bachelor of arts help you get by?

                   I hope to study further, a few more years or so

                   I also hope to keep a steady high

 

Will you try to change things

Use the power that you have, the power of a million new ideas?

                   What is this power you speak of and this need for things to    change?

                    I always thought that everything was fine, everything is fine.

 

Don’t you feel repression just closing in around?

                    No, the campus here is very, very free.

 

Don’t it make you angry the way war is dragging on?

                     Well, I hope the president knows what he’s into,

                      I don’t know, ooh, I just don’t know.

 

Don’t you ever see starvation in the city where you live?

All the needless hunger, all the needless pain?

                       I haven’t been there lately, the country is so fine

                       But my neighbors don’t seem hungry, ‘cause they haven’t got the time,

                       haven’t got the time.

 

Thank you for the talk, you know you really eased my mind

I was troubled by the shape of things to come.

                      Well, if you had my outlook your feelings would be numb

                       You’d always think that everything was fine, everything was fine.

 

Part 2

 

We can make it happen, we can make it happen, we can make it happen

We can change the world now, we can change the world now, we can change the world

             Now

We can save the children, we can save the children

We can make it better, we can make it better, we can make it better

We can make it happen, we can make it happen, we can make it happen

We can save the children, we can save the children, we can save the children

We can make it happen, we can make it happen, we can make it happen….
