A Whole Lot More Cooperation

Cooperating HandsA Whole Lot More Cooperation

Lyrics Copyright 2015

by Peter Bergel

Tune: A Whole Lot More of Jesus and a Lot Less Rock’n’Roll

From the album “Peace Is Where You Make It”


Domination is all around us

Takin’ shapes that are too many to name

It’s built right into our culture

And we’ve all gotta share the blame



We need love instead of profits

And we got to make this our creed

We need a whole lot more cooperation

And a lot less corporate greed.


We got to put away the carbon-based power

We got to put away the nuclear bomb

We got to figure how to feed the hungry

Not blow the world to Kingdom Come




I don’t work for a big corporation

Won’t let the fat cats steal my sweat

The system doesn’t work for poor folks

And I’m not about to work for it




You know we’ve got to protect our planet

‘Cause it’s the only one that we’ve got

We can’t put poison into our water

And make our air radioactively hot.



Things About Comin’ My Way

Health Care Reform buttonThings About Comin’ My Way

Original Words and Melody by Tampa Red

Some New Words and Bridge by Peter Bergel

From the album “Peace Is Where You Make It”

E                                                 E7

Ain’t got no money, can’t buy no grub

A                                  A7                  A

Backbone and navel doin’ the belly rub

E                                   B      Bb A

But after all my hard trav’lin’

E                      B7            E       C7  B7

Things about comin’ my way.


My sister was sick, doctor wouldn’t come

Because we could not pay him the proper sum

But after all my hard trav’lin’

Things about comin’ my way.



                A                                       A7

I got to thinkin’ it sure don’t seem right

          E                                                       E7

That poor folks must choose between health care and light

F#                                                                     F#7

I got to thinkin’ some more and didn’t seem fair


That all of our people can’t get Medicare


When your body is sick and the cupboard is bare

You don’t want insurance, you want real health care

‘Cause after all your hard trav’lin’

Things about coming’ your way.


So you got to lobby, got to speak up loud

What you can’t do alone, sure can do with a crowd

And after all your hard trav’lin’

Things about comin’ your way.
