"Elaina Maria"
by Rowena Whaling



Elaina Maria was a catholic girl
And she went into the chapel each day
Cut to the soul about the death of her child
So she got down on her knees to pray
oo…oh… oh blessed virgin won’t you please??
Tell me why… why did god take my baby away?
The medieval nuns with their sympathetic smiles
Shrugged their shoulders and just walked away…
Singing “AVA MARIA”

Truth … the TRUTH…
Where can it be found and is it up in the sky…or is it deep in the ground
Is it somewhere in the universe…
Or down in your heart.?
Will it bring mankind together…
Or tear her apart?
La la la la la…

Jonathan Levi was a good Jewish boy
With fine tradition and a great family life
But after four years at Harvard  he returned to his home
With a law degree and a young gentile wife
Oh, oh – Grandmother cried “How could you do this to us –
After all that we have done for you?”
With a stranger like her you are not welcome here
To share our joy and celebrate as we do
Singing “Hava Negila…”

Truth … the TRUTH…
Where can it be found and is it up in the sky…or is it down in the ground
Is it somewhere in the universe…
Or deep in your heart.?
Will it bring mankind together…
Or tear her apart?
La la la la la…


Ivan Stolizichnaya was a soviet man
Ever faithful as a child of the state
All that he’d learned about religion was bad…
It was the “opinion of the people?...But wait?~
As he lie on his death bed…The world around him so changed …
The fear in his heart lead to doubt
Would it not have been better
To BELIEVE IN A LIE
Than to have nothing to sing about?
(Silence)

Truth…The truth…
La..la…la…la…la..
