​Merry Little Minuet

This song is by The Kingston Trio.

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 thankful 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
