coveraldermaston

Una delle tante canzoni nate nell’ambito del movimento inglese Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) e cantate durante le marce di protesta da Aldermaston, sede dell’Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), a Londra che si tennero regolarmente dal 1958 al 1964.
Si vedano anche, per esempio, There’s Better Things For You e March With Us Today già presenti su questo sito.
I belong to a family, the biggest on earth
A thousand every day are coming to birth
Our name isn't Johnson, or Jackson, or Jones
It's a name every man should be proud he owns

It's the family of Man keeps growing
The family of Man keeps sowing
The seeds of a new life every day

I've got a sister in Melbourne, a brother in Paris
The whole wide world is dad and mum to me
Wherever you turn you'll find my kin
Whatever the creed or the colour of the skin

It's the family of Man keeps growing
The family of Man keeps sowing
The seeds of a new life every day

The miner in the Rhondda, the coolie in Peking
The men across the ocean who plough, reap and spin
They've got a life and others to share it
So let's bridge the oceans and declare

It's the family of Man keeps growing
The family of Man keeps sowing
The seeds of a new life every day

From the North Pole ice to the snow at the other
There is not a man I wouldn't call brother
But there isn't much time, I've had my fill
Of the men of war who intend to kill

It's the family of Man keeps growing
The family of Man keeps sowing
The seeds of a new life every day

Some people say the world's a horrible place
But it's just as good or bad as the human race
Dirt and misery or health and joy
Man can build or can destroy

It's the family of Man keeps growing
The family of Man keeps sowing
The seeds of a new life every day
