An Olde Ditty For Donald's UN Speech



Attribution: Kingston Trio-Song Title: Merry Minuet- Album Name: From The Hungry i (released 1959)

FYI Hungry i:The hungry i was a nightclub in North Beach, San Francisco. Quite a few singers/comics/etc. in the early days of their careers appeared there. It achieved national prominence in the USA especially among the 'in crowd'. Ditto Kingston Trio who with some other groups laid the groundwork in the USA for an "authentic/acoustic" "folk song" era of the 60's to include a good many folk groups from Britain.

They're rioting in Africa,
They're starving in Spain.
There's hurricanes in Florida,
And Texas needs rain
The whole world is festering
With unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans,
The Germans hate the Poles;
Italians hate Yugoslavs,
South Africans hate the Dutch,
And I don't like anybody very much!

But we can be tranquil
And "thankfill" and proud,
For man's been endowed
With a mushroom-shaped cloud.
And we know for certain
That some lovely day
Someone will set the spark off,
And we will all be blown away!

They're rioting in Africa,
There's strife in Iran.
What nature doesn't do to us
Will be done by our fellow man!

If anyone has never heard one of this song's many live [album] recordings, or been at one of their appearances, it apparently was often included in their appearances repertoire. As the years rolled by, it would be introduced by one of the members of the group with a comment to the effect of saying 'we've not had to rewrite the lyrics'.
