about

The boys are back with another corny Christmas track for all the good kids (and the naughty ones too). Nothing says Christmas like crumby movies, violin solos and political preaching.
Give us a gift and sauce us a buck or two if you like it ;)
love ya,
happy holidays

lyrics

I was sittin' in a crumby movie
With my hands on my chin
All the violence that occurs
Seems like we never win

Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
So love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was lying in my room
And the news came on TV
A lotta people out there hurtin'
And it really scares me

Love and mercy, that's what you need tonight
Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was standing in a bar
And watching all the people there
All the loneliness in this world
Well it's just not fair

(Sound sample)
Everybody's very down, don't despair. I remember a guy named tricky Dickie getting elected. I went down to Ithaca, New York, with a bunch of other U of T students to support the students that occupied the library. We lost Kennedy... Two Kennedys. We lost Martin Luther King, we had a terrible war, we thought the end of the world was coming. But... You guys get cranked up! There is a hope! Get organized students! Start protesting, get out there, do something! Get involved because that's what we did in the 60s and the early 70s and we did bring about change. It was dark then and we thought there was no hope. Come on, everybody! Smile and move forward!
