@msolga,
it's a nice little folk song, here's the lyrics

I slept through the night, I got through to the dawn
I flipped a switch and the light went on
I got out of bed and I put some clothes on
It's a pretty good day so far

I turned the tap, there was cold there was hot
I put on my coat to go to the shop
I stepped outside, and I didn't get shot
It's a pretty good day so far

I didn't hear any sirens or explosions
No murders coming in form those heavy guns
No UN tanks, I didn't see one
It's a pretty good day so far

No snipers in windows, taking a peak
No people panic, running scared through the streets
I didn't see any bodies without arms, legs, or feet
It's a pretty good day so far

There was plasma bandages and electricity
Food, wood, and water; and the air was smoke free
No camera crews from my TV
It's a pretty good day so far

It was all such a strange sight to behold
Nobody was frightened, wounded, hungry, or cold
And the children seemed normal, they didn't look old
It's a pretty good day so far

I walked through a park, you would not believe it
There in the park, there were a few trees left
And on some branches, there were a few leaves left
It's a pretty good day so far

I slept through the night, got through to the dawn
I flipped the switch and the light went on
I wrote down my dream, I made it this song
It's a pretty good day so far

Smile Hey, no sound, but I like it djjd! Thanks for going to the trouble.

Actually, I can sort of imagine what it sounds like, being rather familiar with his songs.

(Did you ever listen to his History cd? That's the last one I bought & listened to ...)

EDIT: Ah bugger, I only wanted to post the bottom one. But they're all part of the same file.
