ONE EASY DAY   (redux for ©2015)
©2006/2015 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

I wake up in the morning with a sleepy face
I gotta drag my butt to join the human race
First I’m gonna meditate - set my pace   
Right into one easy day
I throw back the covers, my feet hit the floor
I sit for a while until I’m sure
I’m ready for the craziness outside my door
I look for one easy day


CHORUS
One easy day, one easy day
How lovely it would be to live trouble free 
For one easy day

In my easy day we’re all kind and patient
I keep my bigmouth shut, no misbehaving
Everyone I meet, they’re navigating
Towards one easy day

Then I make a phone call, and I get right through
A human says “Hello, what can I do for you?”
I get to say my peace, that’s all I wanted to do
Oh, that’s one easy day.

CHORUS


What if you had a day—no one got in your face
No one ticked you off to put you in your place
I think I’ll step aside and let the rats all race
And give them an easy day
What if we all woke up, there was no war
No more hungry children, suffering, poor
We can’t be the only ones asking for—
One easy day.

CHORUS
