Hi good people Looking for the title and lyrics maybe sheet music to a song I learned in the mid 70's. We had to sing it in grade school choir. He are some of the lyrics, I can't say that they are correct though.

Babies are crying and theres no to listen, children are dying and theres no one to feed them, but still the world keeps rolling(?) on and on, still the world keeps rolling on and on.

Thanks in advance for any help, Heidi

Isn't that a Harry Chapin Tune?

This page and this page contain references to a song called "The World Keeps Rolling On." The latter classifies it as choral music and says the author is Kingsley. You can order the sheet music for $1.50!

BUT STILL THE WORLD KEEPS ROLLING ON
From: "Shabbat for Today" written by Gershon Kingsley
Sung by an unnamed vocal group on "God Is a Moog" (2006)

Babies are cryin' and there's no one to listen,
And old folks are dyin' and there's no one to miss them,
But still the world goes rollin' on an' on.
Still the world goes rollin' on.

Bellies are growlin' and there's no one to feed them,
And people are howlin' and there's no one to lead them,
But still the world goes rollin' on an' on.
Still the world goes rollin' on.

There were a lot of other creatures upon this earth before we came.
The brontosaurus, tyrannosaurus,
They lived a hundred million years,
And no one knows exactly why sturdy animals like that became extinct.

Mankind is yearning for a human equation,
And slowly we're turnin' to the new generation,
And still the world goes rollin' on an' on.
Still the world goes rollin' on.

We have a vision of a world without chaos,
A practical vision because with or without us,
The world will still go rollin' on and on,
And we would like to ride along.
The world will still go rollin' on and on,
And we would like to ride along.

I remember seeing a commercial featuring these lyrics and and showing a stage separation of an apollo rocket. It was from a camera mounted in the rocket; the stage fell away and the disc of the Earth appeared.
