The Lyrics

about the world as we know it
So many problems in the world tonight,
Instead of love and peace, we gotta fuss and fight
There's so much danger we have gone too far
Theres no use grievin' now forever bear the scar - bleak is the world


Oh, Peace and love is going down the drain,
Why can't we understand? It's just a cryin' shame
Politicians lyin', with their abs of steel
Don't stop the fight right now, we got to do what we feel - Bleak is the world

Chorus:
(Bleak is the world, is the world, is the world)
It's polluted, people screaming,
Bleak, men at war, no more forrest, poisioned ocean,
Bleak is the way we are feeling


Not much fresh air, what have we thrown away this is reality, I believed in yesterday
There ain't much chance that we can make it so far
Theres no use grievin' now forever bear the scar - bleak is the world

(chorus)


This is a time of polution, a lack of control
Mixed with confusion - I fear the end is near?


So many problems in the world tonight,
Instead of love and peace, we gotta fuss and fight
There's so much danger we have gone too far
Theres no use grievin' now forever bear the scar - bleak is the world


chorus repeats 2x

(Bleak is the world, is the world, is the world...)

Going over my parody again I have made an amendment.... Instead of the line: " I fear the end is near?" i think it would sound better as: "Heading for utter ruin" fits the pacing better so substitute it and my song will be better
