The Day I Saved the World [demo]

Once I believed that love
And good intentions
Would win the day
And we would overcome

Now I’ve learned it does no good
To lean on love and knock on wood
Now you’re gone
And I’m the lonely one

I found all the wrong things to do
But just for one moment, loving you
I could have saved the world

Since I lost track of you
I’ve lost sight of a star or two
But love’s a game
That tends to leave you scarred

And though you say the story’s done
There’s still time to find the sun
If you would only tell me
Where you are

I found all the wrong things to do
But just for one moment, loving you
I could have saved the world

Seven Years in the Sand [demo]

According to Ewan MacColl, from whom I learned this back in the Dark Ages, this ‘lugubrious ditty’ originated with the Middle East Air Force Regiment in World War II, but is now also claimed by every other unit to see service in that part of the world. According to his sleeve notes for ‘Bundook Ballads’, “The only song which exceeds it in popularity among desert troops is the ribald Ballad of King Farouk, a song of rich bawdiness and impossible advice.”
