We want to do a tune
Written for today
For this hour
For Dr. Martin Luther King
We've stated before that this whole program is dedicated to
his memory.
But this tune is written about him, written for him.
So,
We had yesterday to learn it, so we'll see.

Once upon this planet Earth
Lived a man who humbled earth
Preaching love and freedom for his fellow man
He was dreaming of the day
Peace would come to Earth to stay
And he spread this message all across the land.

Turn the other cheek, he'd bleed
"Love thy' neighbour" was his creed.

Pain humiliation, death...
He did not dread...
With his Bible at his side.

Hm
From his foes, he did not hide.
It's hard to think
That this great man is dead.
(Oh Yeah)

Will the murders never cease?
All the men were unambuished.
W
What did he ever hope
Ever hope to gain?
"Will my country fall, stand, or fall?"
Is it too late for us all
And did Martin Luther King just die in vain?

Cause' he'd seen the mountain top
And he knew he could not stop.
Always living, with the threat of death ahead.

Folks you better, stop and think!
Because we are heading for the brink.
What will happen now, that he is dead?

He was for equality,
For people, you and me.
Full of love and good will,
Hate was not his way.

He was not a violent man!
(Inaudible)

We can all shed tears, but it wont change a thing.
Teach your people, will they ever learn
Cause you always kill and burn, and burn with guns,
And kill with guns, and burn; don't you know how we got to
react?
Dontcha know what it will bring?

But he had seen the mountain top.
And he knew he could not stop.
Always living, with the threat of death ahead.
Folks you better stop and think,
Because everybody know's we're on the brink!

What will happen, now that the king is dead?
Well you see, he had seen the mountain top,
And he knew he could not stop.
Always living with the threat of death ahead.

Folks you better stop and think, and feel again.
Before we are heading for the bring.
What's gonna' happen now?!
In all of our cities!
My people are rising!
They're living in lies, even if they have to die!
Even if they have to die, at the moment that they know what
life is!
(Yeah)

Even at that one moment that cha' know what life is.
If you have to die, its alright!
Cause you know what life is!
You know what freedom is, for one moment in your life!
Whats gonna happen!?
Now that the king of love is dead!

(Commentary)

And he knew he could not stop!
Always living with the threat of death ahead.
Folks you better stop and think, cause we're almost to the
brink.
What will happen, now that the king of love is dead!?
