Snow Globe World


Snow Globe World

© 2017 Bret Hesla.

Intro:
The world is like a snowglobe and the people are its glitter
And every day God give this ball a shake
As people swirl around me, I’m mesmerized in beauty
And grateful for the happy fact that no two are alike
[And here’s my song to celebrate that no two are alike]

1. I’m glad there are people who know wild mushrooms
And don’t share their secret locations
I’m glad there are people who net dragonfllies
Even though I feel bad for the captured
I’m glad there are people who memorize poems
Like the Cremation of Sam Magee
Ch: I sing in praise of the bright colored glitter of people that
swirl in our snow globe world.

2. I’m glad there are people who listen to cars
And know which clicks might signify trouble
I’m glad there are people who run marathons
And spend all of their free time in training
I’m glad there are people who take me to task
When I pretend I’m not copping out (Ch)

3. I’m glad there are people who like to stay home
Reading novels while on the front porch swing
I’m glad there are people who study the past
And wear old funny clothes on the weekends
I’m glad there are people who like to keep books
And make sure that the figures are jake (Ch)

4. I’m glad there are people who speak in three tongues
And can help me share tools with my neighbors
I’m glad there are people who’re outraged by stuff
That I see in the news and ignore it
I’m glad there are people who go for the pink
when the proper shoe color is brown (Ch)

5. I’m glad there are people who think that a bug
Has a worth quite the same as what ours is
I’m glad there are people who get out and spray
So the wedding outside is successful
I’m glad there are people who don’t like to read
Who would rather watch movies and dance

Last Ch:
I’m so glad there are six billion
Pieces of bright colored
glitter that swirl in this
beautiful blizzarding
shimmering flickering
magical home of a snow…..globe…..world.
