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 .....                                                       

           So 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.
