Thread Name: What Song for Your Funeral?
Subject: RE: What Song for Your Funeral?
From Way Up Here - Malvina Reynolds

From way up here, the earth is very small
it's just a little ball
of rock and sea and sand
no bigger than my hand.

From way up here, the earth is very small
they shouldn't fight at all down there
upon that little sphere

Their time is short
A life is just a day
You'd think they'd find a way
You'd think they'd get along
And fill their magic days with song....

From way up here, the earth is very small
it's just a little ball so small
so beautiful and clear.

Their time is short
A life is just a day
Must be a better way
To use the time that runs
Among the distant suns.

From way up here the earth is very small
it's just a little ball so small
so beautiful and dear.

From way up here the earth is very small
it's just a little ball
of rock and sea and sand
No bigger than my hand.
