Trovo la canzone nell’album “At 89” del 2008.

At 89

“Verrà il giorno in cui la nostra scuola riceverà i soldi di cui ha bisogno, mentre la Marina militare dovrà mettersi a vendere le torte per comprarsi una nave da guerra… Verrà il giorno in cui Johnny riceverà i soldi di cui ha bisogno per la sua salute, mentre l’Aeronautica militare dovrà organizzare una lotteria per comprarsi un bombardiere…”
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

Our school will get the money it needs for smaller classes,
And the Navy will hold a bake sale to build a battleship.

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

And Johnny will get the money he needs for that operation,
And the Air Force will hold a raffle to buy a bomber.

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

And every vote will be counted in every election,
And the winners will always keep all of their promises.

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

And around the world we’ll learn each other’s languages
And the very first thing we’ll learn is how to listen.
[spoken] “Who knows the word for ‘hello’ in some other language?”
[spoken responses of “hello” in several languages]

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

God only knows what the future will be
God only knows what the future will be
But God gave us brains
He meant us to use ’em

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!

One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days (ONE-A THESE DAYS)
One-a these days, one-a these days
OR ELSE!
