It's Alright
The Basically Brooklyn Series

Little darling
it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling
it's gonna be a long cold lonely spring
In the morning I see you naked in your bedroom
In the morning I heed the social distancing.

armed with so much passion
Struggling through some sick psycho dream
all those carts
For all those crashing
In the forest
the nightingales scream.

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
We're in this together
Got to help one another
We're gonna get to the future
We're gonna live with the past
We've been here before and this ain't to be the last.

We've been here for God
We've been here for country
We've been here for the Super Bowl and even for Humpty Dumpty
We were strong in Boston and united on that dawn
When planes struck a nation
As a nation we did mourn.

Little darling
I know this really don't mean a thing
Little darling
I know you don't want to hear me sing
I ain't Dylan, Lennon, Bowie or Young
But I know with patience
Every nightmare comes undone
Hold on to patience
Here comes the sun
little darling
Here comes the sun.
Sleep soundly
It'll all be alright.
