Alice's Restaurant Massacre Illustrated

Discuss the importance of this great Arlo Guthrie tune on the generation and enjoy. I've re-touched the original drawings, combined both parts, and made the ...

"Alice's Restaurant Massacree"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Song by Arlo Guthrie from the album Alice's Restaurant Released October 1967 ;Alice's Restaurant Massacree" is a musical spoken monologue by singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie released on his 1967 album Alice's Restaurant.

 

The song is one of Guthrie's most prominent works, based on a true incident in his life that began on Thanksgiving Day 1965, and which inspired a 1969 movie of the same name.

 

In an interview for All Things Considered, Guthrie said the song points out that any American citizen who was convicted of a crime, no matter how minor (in his case, it was littering), could avoid being conscripted to fight in the Vietnam War.

 

 The Alice in the song was restaurant-owner Alice M. Brock, who in 1964 used $2,000 supplied by her mother to purchase a deconsecrated church in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, where Alice and her husband Ray would live. It was here rather than at the restaurant—which came later—where the song's Thanksgiving dinners were actually held.

 

The song occupies the entire A-side of Guthrie's 1967 debut record album, also titled Alice's Restaurant. It is notable as a satirical, first-person account of 1960s counterculture, in addition to being a hit song in its own right. The final part of the song is an encouragement for the listeners to sing along, to resist the U.S. draft, and to end war.

Too Late to Apologize: A Declaration

"To get the lyrics or download the mp3, visit http://soomopublishing.com/declaration

 

My students love these spoof videos. 

 

Lyrics

 

Halfway across the globe
And we're standing on new ground
Screaming 'cross the waves
You can't hear a sound
There's no fair trials, no trade, no liberties
No tea
We've colonized America; we won't stand for tyranny,
Oh king

 

And it's too late to apologize
It's too late
I said it's too late to apologize
It's too late

 

We've paid your foolish tax, read the acts
And they just won't do
We want to make it clear, we believe this much is true
All men were created with certain

Unalienable rights
Among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit
Of happiness

 

And it's too late to apologize
It's too late
I said It's too late to apologize
It's too late

 

It's too late to apologize
It's too late
I said it's too late apologize
It's too late

 

I said it's too late to apologize, yeah
It's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah

Halfway across the globe
And we're standing on new ground
