One by One

As long as there’s a sun

they’ll come here one by one

The schemers

the smugglers

the dreamers

and jugglers

Making room for everyone


And as long as there’s a promise

there is give-and-take among us

The preachers

and farmers

the teachers

and charmers

On song, a chorus of one

Fourth of July with apple pie

Mama stirs like a butterfly

Papa reaches to the sky And all the flowers grow straight and high

When in town please stop by

Mama moves like a butterfly

Papa lifts me to the sky And all the flowers grow straight and high


Why'd the promise lose its heart?

and goodwill exit and depart?

It's the grabbers

and haters

stabbers

and traitors

Bent on ripping us apart


Oh my, I wonder why

Mama hums a lullaby

Papa looks me in the eye And all the flowers lie down and die

Oh my, I could cry

Mama sings a lullaby

Papa stares me in the eye

And all the flowers lie down and die

Inside, outside

they couldn’t abide

They couldn’t agree

and couldn’t decide

The life-long dream

just ran out of steam

And all the dirty water

came running down stream

In good time the sun will come

and they’ll return here one by one

The believers

reformers

achievers

performers

To keep darkness on the run


New shoes and cute hair tie

Mama glows like a butterfly

Papa stretches to the sky And all the flowers grow straight and high

Cream tarts and Key Lime pie

Mama soars like a butterfly

Papa smiles up to the sky And all the flowers grow straight and high
