PARIS

A SONG LYRIC, 11/13/2015

Alan Gembola, Guest Writer

In the spirit of ‘Silver & Leather’ Gembola continues to record his times through song lyrics. He is November’s guest writer—taken off Facebook.

NOTE: After reading this, read an article I posted the morning of Nov. 13 (although it was backdated to Nov. 5): The Eastern European Holocaust: Executing Jews & Gypsies :The Execution of Jews and Gypsies in the Ukraine, Moldovia, Lithuania and other sites in Eastern Europe

It’s message is pertinent to actions being taken in today’s world.

(Introduction)
Well, it’s been a long, long week
Oh thank God it’s finally Friday
Let’s go out and have a party

(1)
Paris
Is not gay tonight
French eyes are full of tears
French minds are full of fears

(2)
Paris
Is not safe tonight
Shutter up your homes
The borders all are closed

(Bridge)
He was all dressed in black
His face behind a mask
A gun strapped to his back
He shouted then attacked

(Chorus)
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He shot his gun again
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He reloaded once again 
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He shot his gun again
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He reloaded once again

(3)
Paris
Is not free tonight
Eleven thirteen fifteen called
One hundred thirty dead in all

(Insert audio news reports & eyewitness accounts)

(Chorus)
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He shot his gun again
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He reloaded once again 
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He shot his gun again
Bang, Bang, Bang!
He reloaded once again
And again, and again, and again
