(David & Jenny Heitler-Klevans)


[2001]
"A Blues for 9/11 ? Well, not only for that… This song was written after 9/11. It is a relatively simple peace song, mourning the deaths of innocent people. I wrote it after an argument, in which my attempts to say that the victims on 9/11 aren't the only innocents we should mourn was misinterpreted as "excusing terrorism". I thought a song might make my point more clearly.
1. All those people
in New York
shouldn't have died,
shouldn't have died.
When I heard
that bad news
Oh, I cried
You know I cried.
It was wrong, so wrong
The hurt lasts long, so long.
All those people,
all those people,
shouldn't have died,
shouldn't have died.

2. All those people,
in Kabul
shouldn't have died,
shouldn't have died.
When I heard
that bad news
Oh, I cried
You know I cried.
It was wrong, so wrong
The hurt lasts long, so long.
All those people,
all those people,
shouldn't have died,
shouldn't have died.


3. All those people,
in D.C. et coetera

4.All those people, in Baghdad...

All those people in Jerusalem
All those people in Kosovo
All those people in Oklahoma City
All those people in Soweto
All those people in Santiago
All those people in Hiroshima
All those people in Auschwitz
All those people at Wounded Knee

1. All those people, in New York...
