Some of you will remember this song from 1983. The times were hard in the Eighties, and for many are tough today. But here’s the thing: you and I are witnesses to the good news Anne Murray is asking to hear.
The best antidote to the sadness and disappointment the world offers is to return to the truth. Thank God that he loved the world so much that he gave his Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but will have eternal life.
Who can deny that that is more than, A little good news, today?
I rolled out this mornin' the kids had the mornin' news show on Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band One more sad story's one more than I can stand Just once how I'd like to see the headline say "Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today I'll come home this evenin', I'll bet that the news will be the same Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care Whoa, tell me Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA We sure could use a little good news today Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today Writer(s): Rory Michael Bourke, Tommy Rocco, Charles Frank Black, Thomas Rocco
