Ten Years After - I'd Love to Change the World - Alvin Lee



in my often frenetic online life, amidst my multi-site posting and sharing, i came across a vid on youtube which was entitled "ten years after 9/11". needless to say i was inspired to recall a band that played woodstock that had that very name. it seemed an imperative to share that song. the more things change... the more they do seem the same. 


I'd love to Change The World
lyrics and music ...Alvin Lee

Spoken 'Now, turn on'
Everywhere is freaks and hairys
Dykes and fairies
Tell me where is sanity?

Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till we run out, rich no more
I'd love to change the world
(Dee-dee-dee-dee)
But I don't know what to do
(Dee-eee-dee-dee-dee-dee)
So I'll leave it up to you-ooo-ooo
(Be in my prayer)
Population, keeps on breedin'
Nation bleedin', still more feedin'
Economy

Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees made honey, who needs money?
Monopoly

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
(Dee-eee-dee-dee-dee-dee
So I'll leave it up to you-you-ooo
(We-eee-dee-dee-dee-dee)
Oh, yeah!

(Rich or poor)
(It's your fault)
(Screw you)

more pollutions, there's no solutions
Restitution, mass confusions

Spread the word
Rich or poor
Save the earth
Stop the war

Spoken:
(And we've got nothin' to do)
(Just turn on)

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you-ooo-ooo, woo-ooo
Woo-ooo-ooo-ooo
(Dee-eee-dee-dee-dee-dee)

Just turn me on.
