WHO GETS TO STAY? © Bob Wright Who gets to stay? Is what we’re all saying And it’s tearing the country apart Should we speak the same language Should we all tackle Spanish Does it matter… if we speak from the heart? Who gets to stay? It is all so confusing And it’s hard to know just what to think Do we hire illegals or force them to leave Does it matter if the economy stinks? Are there too many Irishmen not enough Jews Do we tell all the Mexicans we’ve had it with you Do we shut down our borders and put up a wall Or open the quotas and welcome them all Who gets to stay? Has it all gone so far That we call out the dogs and we fence in the yard Do we load up the shotguns hold up your green cards Do we celebrate diversity by reducing the odds Are there too many Indians, Muslims and Sikhs Do we tell all the Russians We’d like them to leave Do we shut ourselves off From the rest of the world Or ditch all the quotas and welcome them all Who gets to stay? Were your grandparents welcome When they first stepped ashore in this land Admit it or not they probably weren’t That’s the fate of the immigrant man Who gets to stay? There are no easy answers But one thing is perfectly clear That we’ve come pretty far and we owe what we are To the people who chose to come here

GLIMMERGLASS © Bob Wright the tide is turning I see it eddying around the buoys near the strand I’m walking on off in the distance foreign lands are waiting for me I often wonder about them and the ocean like glimmerglass mirrors everything that I see every cloud that goes skimming past rushes by under and over me my life is turning I see it eddying around the people near the strand I’m walking on off in the distance foreign people walking on a strand do they wonder about me and the ocean like glimmerglass mirrors everything that I see every thought that goes skimming past rushes by under and over me

IF © Bob Wright if I talk I might lie if I sing I might cry when I dance with an angel the devils close by and I wonder sometimes if I should be concerned if I’m low I get high if I’m sad I might smile when I stroll by the seashore my eyes on the sky and I wonder sometimes if I should be concerned I try and I try to change what I’m doing but everyone tells me thats called being human it all sounds to me like a bunch of excuses but I like to use them if I talk and I lie if I sing and I cry if I dance with an angel with the devil close by and I wonder sometimes if I should be concerned its a wonder how much I still have to learn

TRUTH © Bob Wright I have to say it out loud the truth will never be known I’ve tried to set it straight but I’m getting old it ain’t the same for us all it shifts around like the wind try it on for size you might win in the end there are always at least two sides someone goes home happy somebody cries there never was a plan I was along for the ride you don’t have to believe me but I got nothing left to hide it was so long ago we were all just kids we never thought our lives would be defined by it people believe what they want to believe they don’t want reasons they just go by how it seemed Now I’m the only one left it barely matters to me they tell me I’ll be judged by history I could live with that if I had the time but the doctors tell me that I’ve reached the end of the line

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
