A co-write with Joanne Cooper.

Back some time ago, several of us (in this forum), wrote, recorded and posted songs about the plight of the rhinos.
(Joanne spearheaded that "movement").

This is one that never got posted.
So I thought I'd let it see the light of day.


WHAT WE GONNA TELL OUR CHILDREN

every year the number gets a little smaller
every year bone pile a little taller
rhino disappearing before our very eyes
poachers grow like a cancer
if not you and me, who will have the answer?
will you turn away when you hear their cries?

   what we gonna tell our children
   what we gonna say we did
   that we let the rhino end
   or that we saved them for our kids
   stand up for the sake of your sons
   raise your voice for your daughters
   give them a future
   together we can stop the slaughter
   so tell me...
   what we gonna tell our children

educate the world
it's just a fairy tale
no magic in the horn
just a con man sale
wasting your money
won't cure a thing
death of the beast
is all it can bring

   what we gonna tell our children
   what we gonna say we did
   that we let the rhino end
   or that we saved them for our kids
   stand up for the sake of your sons
   raise your voice for your daughters
   give them a future
   together we can stop the slaughter
   so tell me...
   what we gonna tell our children

A fight we should revisit often.

Great tune and poignant message. I had forgotten about the songs for the Rhino project. There were several nice ones as I recall.

Enjoyed this one a lot.

Excellent tune. Very powerful lyrics and vocal. African wildlife has surely been exploited. Super way to delivery the message..

Floyd,

Hard hitting lyrics delivered with powerful vocals and a great band.
Thanks for digging this up - I`m going to look back in the forum for the other songs on this theme.

Floyd. Thanks so much for posting this. I must say I was very dissappointed that I couldn't get anything going with the rhino thing. There was such an awesome collection of songs and a commitment from two top South African artists to record for an album.

We needed about R120 K sponsorship (about $10 k) to get the thing going and I approached about 50 corporate companies in South Africa with no interest.

I guess corporate South Africa is a bit over saturated with the plight of the rhino and is also probably dispondant that even with all of their efforts and money we do not seem to be winning the war.

After FAWM I will do a video of this one.

Floyd/Joanne,

Why wasn't this posted before ;-)
a very melodic and poppy verse with a good powered up chorus.
A very complete package!
Good work as always.

Floyd and Joanne

A powerful, powerful write, and delivery.

More musical class from you guys.

This is masterfully delivered, and sends out a powerful and vastly important message at the same time.

Just so well done.

Excellent! Powerful message delivered in a powerful way. Love the drums in this, did you add processing after the fact to get them to sound so good?
Anyway, an excellent write, performance, and mix, on my third listen.

floyd and Joanne,

This is excellent, really excellent: great lyrics, great melody, great singing, superb arrangement and a real power-house of a mix. I can't believe that this has been sitting on some proverbial shelf somewhere! From every angle, this is 'quality'.

All the best to you both,
Noel

Good song, alas the Black Rhino seems also to be extinct in the wild now too, so too late mate.
A re-write of it? Along the lines of I Shot the Sheriff, but ... ? As us humans are all guilty. F

What can I say that hasn't been said? Nothing!

This is another fantastic winner from Floyd.
