Dry Run

Dry Run

These Israeli children are practicing their enthusiastic and totally spontaneous waving of Israeli and American in a rehearsal outside the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, March 19, 2013, a day ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit.

And now, a song from my favorite recording artist, Mr. Randy Newman.

Mr. President have pity on the working man / Randy Newman

We’ve taken all you’ve given
Yet it’s gettin’ hard to make a livin’
Mr. President have pity on the working man

We ain’t asking you to love us
You may place yourself high above us
Mr. President have pity on the working man

I know it may sound funny
But people everywhere are runnin’ out of money
We just can’t make it by ourself

It is cold and the wind is blowing
We need something to keep us going
Mr. President have pity on the working man

Maybe you’ve cheated, maybe you’ve lied
Maybe you have lost your mind
Maybe you’re only thinking ’bout yourself

Too late to run, too late to cry now
The time has come for us to say goodbye now
Mr. President have pity on the working man
Mr. President have pity on the working man
