Good people – Jack Johnson

Well, you win:
It’s your show now,
So what’s it gonna be?

Cause people
Will tune in;
How many train wrecks
Do we need to see?

Before
We lose touch, oh
And we thought this was low…

Well, it’s bad,
Getting worse, oh
Where’d all the good people go?

I’ve been changing channels,
I don’t see them
On the T.V. shows

Where’d all the good people go?
We’ve got heaps and heaps
Of what we sow

They got this,
And that,
With a rattle-a-tat

Testing –
1, 2
Man, whatcha gonna do?

Bad news,
Misused –
Got too much to lose

Gimmie some truth now
Who’s side are we on?

Whatever you say –
Turn on the boob tube,
I’m in the mood to obey

So lead me astray
And by the way, now –
Where’d all the good people go?

I’ve been changing channels
I don’t see them
On the T.V. shows

Where’d all the good people go?
We’ve got heaps and heaps
Of what we sow

Sittin ’round,
Feelin far away,

yeah

So far away,
But I can feel the debris

Can ya feel it?

You interrupt me
From a friendly
Conversation

To tell me how great
It’s all gonna be

You might
Notice
Some hesitation

‘Cause

What’s important to you
Is not important to me

Mm mm mm mm…

Way down
By the edge
Of your whole reason

Well, it’s beginning to show
And all I really wanna know is
Where’d all the good people go?

I’ve been changing channels
I don’t see them
On the T.V. show

Where’d all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps
Of what we sow

(Where’d all the good people go?)
They got this,
And that,
With a rattle-a-tat

Testing –
1, 2
Man whatcha gonna do

Bad news
Misused
Gimmie some truth

You got too much to lose
(Where’d all the good people go?)
Who’s side are we on?

Every day
Every way
Okay –
Whatever you say

Run the resolute,
But in the mood
To obey

Station to station
Desensitizing
The nation

(Where’d all the good people go?)

Goin, goin, gone…

 

 

on repeat.

My friend and I who are in the office are of the impression that the birds outside our office forms a choir.
