Song: Gong and Pennywhistle -(Listen)

.

.
.
you can play a cheap tin pennywhistle
or beat on a big gold gong
down here on earth in the soft grass or stinging thistles
nobody stays here for long

those up on high
and those way down low
breath the same bitter air
we’ll just have to see how it goes

you can bring down the house with your gong if you’re not careful
the house can be had for a song
but many a song has been more than tearful
for both the weak and the strong

sing for the loss of the high
sing for the loss of the low
who sip the same bitter wine
we’ll just have to see how it goes

the future’s been sold, the contract’s more than settled
it’s clauses clear as a bell
no profit’s too high —the market in precious metal,
buy everything you can sell

those up on high
and those way down low
breath the same bitter air
we’ll just have to see how it goes

you can play a cheap tin pennywhistle
or beat on a big gold gong
down here on earth in the soft grass or stinging thistle
nobody stays here for long
