Samantha's Songby Cathie Stebbins (1983) I’m writing you this letter Because I’m so confused You see I’m only ten years old With already so much to lose My country wishes peace – So does yours you say But when I watch the news each night I hear about D-Day It seems to me with technology We could learn to help each other With satellites and silicon chips We could do much better You say you’ll help – war’s never been the way It’s time to stop just talking You’ve said all you can say
It seems to me with all I can see We should all be helping one another, another. . . You see I’m only ten years old and There’s a lot around just like me But from where I stand you and Uncle Sam Won’t leave us much to see So please say you’ll do What’s right and should be done So I can stop this worrying And start to have some fun Start to have some fun, yeah Start to have some fun It seems to me with all I can see We should all be helping one another, Another, one another, another, One another, can you bother.
