“There’s Something Happening Here / Don’t Worry / We’re Gonna Have a Good Day”

 

 

“There’s something happening here

What it is ain’t exactly clear

There’s a man with a gun over there

Telling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down

 

There’s battle lines being drawn

Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong

Young people speaking their minds

Getting so much resistance from behind

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down

 

What a field-day for the heat

A thousand people in the street

Singing songs and carrying signs

Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound

Everybody look what’s going down.”   (Stephen Stills, ‘For What It’s Worth’ song lyrics, Buffalo Springfield)

“Don’t worry about a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Singing’ don’t worry about a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Rise up this mornin’

Smiled with the risin’ sun

Three little birds

Pitch by my doorstep

Singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true

Saying’, (this is my message to you)

 

Singing’ don’t worry ’bout a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Singing’ don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing

‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Rise up this mornin’

Smiled with the risin’ sun

Three little birds

Pitch by my doorstep

Singin’ sweet songs

Of melodies pure and true

Sayin’, this is my message to you.”   (Bob Marley, ‘Three Little  Birds’ song lyrics)

“Let’s begin Now

You know today I just woke up and I said

You know instead of waitin’ on a good day

Waitin’ around through up’s and down’s waitin

On something to happen I just say

 

We’re gonna have

We’re gonna have

We’re gonna have a good day

And all my homies gonna ride today

And all these mommies look fly today

And all we wanna do is get by today


Heyyy

We’re gonna have a good day

And ain’t nobody gotta cry today

‘Cause ain’t nobody gonna die today

Save that drama for another day

Heyyy we’re gonna have a good day.”   (Nappy Roots, ‘Good Day’ song lyrics, songwriters: Joseph, Patrick “Beans” Esposito, Edward Hokenson, Bruce Charles Sudano, Melvin Adams, Vito Tisdale, William Hughes, Alan E. Wert)
