Oh, I wasn't familiar with this great song. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. The "official music video" was filmed and produced by Roy Clark - was that THE (late) Roy Clark? Here's a link:

Dave posted lyrics with the video (wish he would use punctuation):

CELEBRATION
(David Mallett)

sometimes you just dont feel like tryin
too any politicians lyin
too many hungry babies cryin
too may random bullits flyin
too much time spent in struggle
too many little kids in trouble
too may cities gone to rubble
too many people talkin double

This cant be our destination
This could be a better nation
time to set the big horse racin
we can change the situation
Trains a leavin from the station
need a brand new generation
This could be a celebration now
now

situations changin fast
too much plastic too much trash
too many smoke stacks spewing ash
too many people with no cash
too much waste not enough water
too many abandoned sons and daughters
too many lost and hopeless feelings
too many lowdown shady dealings

This can't be our destination
This could be a better nation
time to set the big horse racin
need a brand new generation
Trains a leavin from the station
me i got no reservation
This could be a celebration now
now

All this time i hear this roaring
pavement steel and iron ore and people shouting all so sure
that their side is the right side more and more
i see abandoned stores and floors
weary tired and poorer all the time folks they're just buried in the wine because
they're all so bored and
it's become unnatural the way we need the things without a reason
feed the greed the weeds grow from the roots and we're all runnin from the truth we
choose to fight instead of prove ourselves
leave love and hope upon the shelf divided they're just free to sell us anything

This cant be our destination
This could be a better nation
time to set the big horse racin
need a brand new generation
time to change the conversation
Trains a leavin from the station
This could be a celebration
NOW

too many people loooking down
too many closed up factory towns
too much high priced propaganda
too much sadness in this land of dreams
that once could all come true
now its down to me and you
tell me what you gonna do
tell me what you gonna do

This cant be our destination
This could be a better nation
time to set the big horse racin
need a brand new generation
Trains a leavin from the station
This could be a celebration
me i got no reservations
This could be a celebration
This could be a celebration
this could be a celebration
this could be a celebration now
NOW
NOW
