A BETTER PLACE?????????


TAKE ME WITH YOU, MISTER,
DON'T LEAVE ME HERE ALONE.
THEY'VE KILLED MY MOM AND SISTER,
I HAVE NO FOOD OR HOME.

TAKE ME TO ANOTHER LAND
WHERE LIFE IS KINDER,
WHERE PEOPLE CARE AND UNDERSTAND
AND EVERYTHING'S MUCH FINER.

TAKE ME WITH YOU, MISTER,
DON'T LEAVE ME HERE ALONE.
I LONG TO SEE WHERE ALL ARE FED,
AND EACH---THEY HAVE A HOME.

TAKE ME WITH YOU, PLEASE,
TO THE PLACE WHERE ALL DO LAUGH,
WHERE HONEY DRIPS FROM ALL THE TREES
AND EACH CAN TAKE TEN BATHS.

TAKE ME WITH YOU, MISTER.
IT IS MY ONLY WISH-----
TO SEE A PLACE OF ONLY LOVE
AND FOOD ON EVERY DISH.

TAKE ME WITH YOU, MISTER.
WHY DO YOU WALK AWAY?
WHY THE TEARS, MY MISTER,
IS IT SOMETHING I DID SAY?

WHAT DO YOU SAY NOW, MISTER?
THAT THE TRUTH I HAVE TO KNOW,
THAT THE PLACE I SPEAK OF, MISTER,
HAS YET TO DEVELOP-----AS SO?

IS IT AS YOU SAY, MY MISTER,
IN YOUR LAND PEOPLE ALSO SCREAM?
IS IT THE TRUTH, MISTER,
THAT MY HOPES ARE OF A DREAM?

SO, I'LL STAY ON, HERE, MISTER.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND THE FOOD.
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE, ISN'T IT, MISTER,
THAT LIFE, FOR SO MANY, IS NOT GOOD?

SO LONG, TO YOU NOW, MISTER.
I WON'T FORGET YOUR WORD.
I'LL PRAY FOR YOU, TOO, MISTER,
AND ASK GOD IF WE WERE HEARD.

HERE. TAKE THIS SNAPSHOT, MISTER,
IT'S OF US---SEE---AFRO AND WHITE,
TAKE IT. SEE---WE'RE WORKING TOGETHER,
IT WAS TAKEN JUST THE OTHER NIGHT.

DON'T WASTE TIME ON TEARS, MISTER,
WE BOTH KNOW WHAT WE MUST DO.
OH, I'LL GET BY, SOMEHOW, MISTER----
WHAT?
YES. GOD BE WITH YOU, TOO.
