Lyrics

          WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS?

                        Greg Trafidlo

                             c 2006 

 

(SOLDIER)

 

   Charlie's comin'…in the night

 

   Do your duty…firefight

 

   Follow orders…stay alive

 

   America…wrong or right

 

   You've got to stand your ground so freedom can exist

 

 What can we learn? What can we live from this?

 

(VIETNAMESE WOMAN)

 

   Green bamboo trees, mountain breezes

 

   Weak will overcome the strong

 

   Right will overcome the wrong

 

  Winds of change blow in the morning mist

 

  What… can we learn…from this?

 

(PROTESTER)

 

    Can you see what they've done with our money and our sons? 

 

    Then they lie and tell us what this killing's for

 

    Draft cards will burn, "turn, turn, turn"; we'll be studying war no more

 

    When our brothers die, the people rise up and resist

 

    What can we learn from this? What can we learn from this?

 

(REPEAT ALL THREE PARTS TOGETHER)
