TRA LA LA [fast version]

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


           I.  I will not speak
               unless I'm spoken to.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               when the wind is weak,
               I am standing still.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               in dark of night,
               you won't see me around.

          II.  I will not sing
               until I have a song.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               I will not bring
               what does not belong.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               there's enough
               pollution in this world.

      BRIDGE:  too many words
               like fugitive birds
               have spoken themselves
               with no source.
               they smile at the scarecrows
               and pile up in silos
               like Weimar money
               between the wars.

         III.  I will not rise
               until specifically called.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               I won't disguise
               my lead as gold.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               but I want that prize
               one day before I'm old.

      ENDING:  tra la la, tra la la la.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               tra la la, tra la la la.
