GAnd the weatherman said to my friend, "What's your name?"
FMy friend said, "Write yours down, mine is almost the same."
GErase the "S" and "M" in their place put a "G" and "R"
FAnd an "ND" look at me what's that say
GThen the weatherman stood with his head hung in shame
FHe took off his big belt, put it down, turned away
GBut my friend said, "Don't leave, I just harvested beets,
Flet's go eat at my place."
GWith his mouth full the weatherman stared at his plate
FAnd he knew it was his heart that made my friend great
GNot his muscles, his money, his job or his name or his fame
FSee my friend isn't famous
GHe is just a good person who grows what he eats
FAnd if you have a mouth then he will try to feed you
GAnd if you are cold he'll put wood in the stove
FGrab a quilt and some warm flannel sheets
GSo the Grand Champion called up Sam Champion
FSaid, "Let's plant a garden in the heart of this wasteland."
GAnd Sam said, "Hey man, this'll be breaking news,"
Fbut Grand said, "I won't wait for your camera crews.
GSee, I don't do what I do for the glory.
FI do what I do because it's a good story.
GI do what I do because there is a need and a
Fhunger aided by corporate greed.
GSee there's a surplus of food in this country,
FAnd nobody should ever go to sleep hungry,
GBut that food is kept under lock and key
FConsidered a privilege for people with money."
GThen the weatherman dropped to his hands his knees
FWith a tear in his eye and unable to speak
GHe was driven to action by only compassion
F GHe dug in the dirt and he planted some beans
(no playing here)
Grandma said to me
If you only have one bean
And you meet someone with no bean
You should give them half your bean
Cause you will be less hungry
If you eat just half a bean
Than if you eat a whole bean in front of somebody with no bean.
