Does anyone know if there's a recording/video of this, on the internet?

For the record, here are the lyrics, also posted in the "Everything Malvina" thread:

WORLD GONE BEAUTIFUL
(Malvina Reynolds)

The world's gone beautiful
Because it's about to die.
I never saw such flower faces
Or so intent a sky.
I never heard such lines
From horns or violins,
Or saw such lavish girls, such dandy boys,
And I know why.
It's that the world is asking not to die.

I never saw such hands
Flexing like silver leaves,
I never knew such air,
Or leaned to so good a breeze.
Even the tears I cry,
They aren't salt but clear,
For seabirds riding the wind, calling their last,
Their wild goodbye.
The world is asking not to die.

I want to hold this world
And never let it go,
I want the sun to always rise
On the kids next door.
Whether I go or stay,
That question still abides,
Posed by rainbows in the river spray.
What answer do you give
A world that asks so bitterly to live?

Words and music by Malvina Reynolds.

I know it is a song still in copywright (as detailed above) and I assume the estate of Ms Reynolds would benefit from it being purchased rather than stolen. It is available as a perfectly legal, simple and very cheap download here.

Cheers
