Pete Seeger Lyrics

Or Else! (One-A These Days) Lyrics
(Pete Seeger, David Bernz and A.N. Onymous. Music by Pete Seeger)

[Chorus:]
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

Our school will get the money it needs for smaller classes,
And the Navy will hold a bake sale to build a battleship.

[Chorus]

And Johnny will get the money he needs for that operation,
And the Air Force will hold a raffle to buy a bomber.

[Chorus]

And every vote will be counted in every election,
And the winners will always keep all of their promises.

[Chorus]

And around the world we'll learn each other's languages
And the very first thing we'll learn is how to listen.
(spoken) "Who knows the word for 'hello' in some other language?"
(spoken responses of "hello" in several languages)

[Chorus]

God only knows what the future will be
God only knows what the future will be
But God gave us brains
He meant us to use 'em

[Chorus 2x]
