Song Manifesto

John Farnham: Whispering JackWe have

The chance to turn the pages over

We can write what we want to write

We gotta make ends meet, before we get much older

 

We’re all someone’s daughter

We’re all someone’s son

How long can we look at each other

Down the barrel of a gun?

 

Chorus:

You’re the voice, try and understand it

Make a noise and make it clear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

We’re not gonna sit in silence

We’re not gonna live with fear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

 

This time

We know we all stand together

With the power to be powerful

Believing, we can make it better

 

Oooooooh,

We’re all someone’s daughter

We’re all someone’s son

How long can we look at each other

Down the barrel of a gun?…

 

You’re the voice, try and understand it

Make a noise and make it clear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

We’re not gonna sit in silence

We’re not gonna live with fear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

 

{Instrumental[Bag Pipes(Tin Whistle)]}

 

Ooooooh

We’re all someone’s daughter

We’re all someone’s son

How long can we look at each other

Down the barrel of a gun?…

 

You’re the voice, try and understand it

Make a noise and make it clear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

We’re not gonna sit in silence

We’re not gonna live with fear

Oh-o-o-o, whoa-o-o-o!

(repeat until end of song)
