Subject: RE: The New So Long It's Been Good...
Go right ahead. Joel and I would both be honored and delighted, because our purpose in writing this song was to have it sung. You might want to take note of the following changes:

First, we made a small revision in the first stanza, so it now goes as follows:

I'll sing you a song, you've heard it before,
Of the mighty, the meek, the rich and the poor,
The power elite can smirk for a while,
But the day will soon come when the people will smile,
And sing...

Second, instead of the final verse about Giuliani, we've substituted this:

Mr. John Ashcroft, you've shackled this land,
Our great Constitution you've worked to have banned,
One day you'll be gone, but democracy will stay,
And on that bright morning, here's what we'll say...

[Additional new words by Joel Landy & Stephen L. Suffet © 2002]

Please let us know how the song is received. Thanks.
