The Lyrics

This second anniversary (7/7/7) of terror attacks in London was preceded by new attempts there, in Glasgow, and rumored plans for the USA. With Presidential primaries in 7 monthes and elections 9 months later, security may become the dominant issue. For this Democrat lament, I followed 2004 lyrics at http://www.absolutelyrics.com/lyrics/view/jane_monheit/too_late_now/ although I remember the song from about 1960.
Too late now to forget the pile
Of fearsome things on Manhattan Isle;
Pentagon too forget and rave on as once we'd do.

Too late now to regret the choice
Of President with no speaking voice.
Too late now for John Kerry, Al Gore to run anew.

All the Reagan years we'd weather,
Then forgive Bill Clinton's tarts.
There is one thing not clear, whether
They kept private parts.

How come we now oppose this war,
And try to claim that Bush lied before?
Fading polls show we can't raise our score;
It's too late now.

[Instrumental Interlude]

All the voting blocs we'd tether;
We believed we had the smarts.
Lib'ral plans we dreamed together
Stay on in our hearts.

How can we now foreclose this war,
And play the game as we did before?
Candidates know they can't anymore;
It's too great now.
If you sing this in public and people drop money, keep it; but drop me a note at bjmitchel@att.net .
