THE KINGSTON TRIO’S Merry Minuet
They’re rioting in Africa (la-la-lala-la-la-la)
They’re starving in Spain (la-la-la-lala-la)
There’s hurricanes in Florida (la-la-lala-la-la-la)
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.
As they say, history may not repeat itself, but sometimes, it rhymes.
