(Ballad of An) Angry Young ManWORDS & MUSIC: Earl P. Reinhalter
INTRO: there's a shadow on the land. you can't see it from your place in the sun. and you don't understand how could anyone be an angry young man. I. nothing ever gets better while you run the show. we just go on forever in your status quo. and you think you have wisdom 'cause you have your degree. but that isn't wisdom... you just have a good memory. II. you can try to instruct me in your churches and schools, and in vain reconstruct me from your dead molecules. but there is no religion or philosophy that could ever convince me that life is the best it can be. III. my mother and father and I disagree. but they should be grateful for children like me, 'cause if all the people throughout history took after their parents, we'd still be living in trees. ENDING: there's a shadow on the land. you can't see it from your place in the sun. and you don't understand how could anyone be an angry young man, man, angry young man------
