Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1976 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2004.

Uneasy, I'm a little bit uneasy.
Oh I wish I could make you laugh all day
And get out in the aisles and dance and glow,
But my heart's uneasy and I have to tell you so.

Well I love you and I love you and
I like to get you jumping around,
But outside there the system's working
And it means to bring you down.
And if I didn't tell you I know that's so
I'd be lying and that would be wrong,
So I song you this little uneasy song.


Well sometimes we laugh together
And sometimes we stomp and run
Cause together is such a pleasure
And together is the finest fun,
But outside the system's working
And we know in the back of our head
That together is fighting the system or we're dead.
