GOOD PEOPLE BY JACK JOHNSON

GOOD PEOPLE BY JACK JOHNSON

You know me. I am a jolly good fellow surrounded with good people. You know what, this song reminds me of a popular adage peculiar to the Yoruba speaking people in Western Nigeria.

Awon eniyan ni aso mi

In English language, it means people are my clothes. It is proverb that suits this beautiful song by Jack Johnson. The question in the song is, where are all the good people? They are at Daily Wisdom Words. I am the first candidate. (laughs) A big thanks to Michelle Huggelmann for suggesting that i feature this song on Daily Wisdom Words Music Prompt. Welcome!

    The world keeps changing,
    the traffic is bad
    If I try to drive over,
    the people are sad.

    Don’t know the reason,
    that the good people left
    only know the seasons,
    time committing theft.

    Tick tock its the clock,
    reminding me to take a walk
    I turn on the TV
    only bad news to see!

    where are the good people
    did they leave?
    or did the world change,
    then, so did we.

    gone is the kindness,
    all of them showed
    i feel so confused,
    where did the good people go?

    Give me some reason,
    so I see what is
    now no one smiles,
    the good peoples shift

    Even the sun,
    leaves the daytime dark
    where did the good people go?
    Did they find a new start?

    they were the reason,
    the earth wore a smile
    where are the good people,
    they made life worthwhile….

    Sharing Your Vibe

    Will you share your vibe
    dance into mine
    walk on my beach
    where have you been, love?

    You afternoon my words
    finding your beat to stay us
    everyone else is gone
    shall we make today our?

    Tales of loves lost & found
    our mood remembers them
    starlight blanketing us
    where will we go now?

    good people
    has sojourned in
    daffodil dreams
    where the blue Jays sings
    kissed down
    with all the
    familiar sunrise
    remembrance of blooms
    scenting the air
    for honey bees
    floating on water lilies
    and love remembers
    the exotic delirium
    of their laughter
    compensating mornings .

    Good people are gone,
    where did they go?
    no smiles I see,
    a life moving slow.

    Where is the ocean?
    all scenery
    scorched is the earth
    no good people to see

    Walking on streets
    trying to find,
    where the good people
    with smiles there’s no sign

    I thought i i knew happiness,
    a crowd walks the streets
    through all the motion,
    no good people I see.

    Where did they go?
    when did they leave?
    all the good people
    whose smiles I can’t see

    These new people,
    never can smile,
    there is no laughter
    I feel so beguiled

    the new people,
    hate the cold and the hot
    no way to please them,
    they pass on, good people their not.
