IT WILL BE O.K.                folk/ballad/with a beat/calmly          (C) J.Birch 2000.   

                                                                                                  

 When I was   a little boy,     I had   a skateboard                                                                                      

 One day    I skinned my knee,      And it    began to bleed

 So I    raced inside    to see my mum ,     She said   to me    "Now   Johnny,   don't you be dumb"

 "It will    be O.K.",     "Johnny   it will  be O.K."

 

 BUT  THERE  WAS  TROUBLE  IN  PARADISE

 I  SAW  IT  ON  THE  NEWS

 ALL  THE  DOGS  THEY  WERE  TRANQUILLISED

 THEY  HAD  THE   BLUES

                                                                                                                                                  

 NONE  OF THEM  COULD  GET  BONES

 BIG  ENOUGH  TO  EAT

 SO THEY  CRIED  OUT 

 AND  COULDN'T  GET  TO  SLEEP

               

 IN   THE   MORNING   LIGHT

 IT   WILL   BE   ALL   RIGHT

 SO    NOW    

 DON’T    HOWL

 

 When  I was    twenty one,       My wife and  I     we had a son

 And when my son    was  all of  four,     I gave him     my skateboard                                                     

 He grew into   a big strong boy,    You should have   seen his joy

 He had   so much fun,     Playing    in the sun

 

 BUT  THERE WAS TROUBLE  IN  PARADISE

 I  SAW IT ON THE  NEWS

 ALL  THE CATS  THEY  WERE  TRANQUILLISED

 THEY HAD THE  BLUES

 

 NONE  OF  THEM  COULD  COME  INSIDE

 THEY  HAD  TO  WIPE  THEIR  SHOES

 AND   THEY  HAD  TO WASH  THEIR  FEET

 BEFORE   THEY  COULD  EAT

 

 IN    THE    MORNING    LIGHT

 IT   WILL   BE    ALL    RIGHT

 SO   NOW

 DON’T    MEOW

 

 When my son    turned seventeen,     He  said  to me   "I have a dream"

 He said   "I want to be   number one",    I told him  "Son,    no problem"                                             

 He  became   the biggest man,    Ever to stand    in this old land

 You call   him    'Your  President',     I wonder  if    he  forgets ?

                                                                                                                                                                    

 When he was    a little boy,    He had    a skateboard .....

 One  day    he skinned  his  knee,    And  it    began to  bleed .....                                                       

 He  raced inside   to see  his  mum,     She said to him   "Now Johnny,  don't you be dumb"

 "It will   be O.K.",     "Johnny    it will   be O.K."

 

 BUT  THERE  WAS  TROUBLE  IN  PARADISE

 I  SAW  IT  ON  THE  NEWS

 ALL  THE  HUMANS   THEY  WERE  TRANQUILLISED

 THEY   HAD   THE   BLUES

 

  NONE  OF  THEM  COULD  SEE   THE  LIGHT

  SHINING  OH  SO  BRIGHT

  NOT   ONE  OF   THEM   BELIEVED

  THAT   IT  WOULD   BE   ALL   RIGHT

 

  IN   THE   MORNING   LIGHT

  IT   WILL   BE   ALL   RIGHT

  SO   NOW 

  DON’T   GROWL

 

 SO   NOW     DON’T  GROWL…          

 SO  NOW      DON’T  GROWL…

                                                                                                                                                                       

 IT WILL BE O.K.

  Look around you,  you are   very lucky !

  Look ahead   it is   very clear

  You are   living in   the land of   milk and honey

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

 

  Now I know a man   who said  "I wish   I could   go to heaven"

  Me   I can see   HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

  Some people   wouldn't know it   if it bit them

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

 

  Look around you,  you are   very lucky !

  Look ahead   it is   very clear

  You are   living in   the land of   milk and honey

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

 

  Now I know a man   who said   he just wanted   to be happy

  You know   he had it all   but   he could not see

  He was   always  cursing   and whining

  He never did   see the forest   from the trees

 

  Look around you,  you are   very lucky !

  Look ahead    it is   very clear        

  You are   living in   the land of   milk and honey

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

 

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE

  HEAVEN IS RIGHT HERE
