A Day In Haiti's Life (Parody of A Day In The Life)

Author:Parody
Theme: Apathy

[The following from the Haiti relief concert]

I read the news about Haiti
Half million people died in Port Au Prince
And though the news was rather sad
No tears came to my eyes
Watching the photographs...

Though Haiti's two hours south by plane
We hadn't noticed Haitians share our race
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd heard the name before
Nobody was really sure if Haiti is in Africa

I saw a film about Haiti
United Nations mailing token aid
And then the nations turned away
But I just had to help
Love gives me no choice

I'd love to turn____ you____ on____
[To help Haiti]

Woke up, fell out of bed
Gave no thought to Haitian dead
Found my way downstairs and ate my feast
Forgetting Haiti's suffering
In my beautiful American dream

(Oh__oh__oh_ohhh...)
(Ohhh) by the dawn's early light
Rocket's red glare
H bombs bursting in air

I heard the news about Haiti
Half million holes in Haiti's soil today
And though the holes were rather small
They had to dig them all
Now they know how many graves it takes to fill Cite Soleil

I'd love to turn____ you____ on____
[To help Haiti]

Why Troy and Genie parodied The Classic "A Day In Haiti's Life (Parody of A Day I..." for YOU

Inspired by Sting's awesome live recording of the unmatched "A Day In The Life", we and the African Drum band tried to take it one notch further... faster, more intense... And addressing the tragedy that is Haiti... Please help Haitians anyway you can.

original bridge:
Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat,
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
