Oh, look outside the window
There's a woman being grabbed
They've dragged her to the bushes
And now she's being stabbed

  • I like it, thanks Rachel
  • Excellent song, but got no radio play at the time because marijuana is mentioned in one verse. Times sure have changed.
  • i have never heard this before = yes kate very sardonic ♫♥♫
  • Perfectly sardonic...
  • I like the way the song progresses. It starts out with an incident involving one person (inspired by the Kitty Genovese murder). The next verse involves a larger group but can still be rationalized as being of interest to a (relatively) small circle of friends - just not as small as in the first verse. By the third verse, he has worked his way up to a large segment of the population. The fourth verse involves rights of the whole country. The irony in the fifth verse is that it refers to " a friend of ours" but still he says it would not interest anyone outside of a small circle of friends. The song concludes by repeating the first verse. It reminds us that if we ignore an injustice to one person, then it is easy to ignore more widespread injustices, and soon we are victims, too.
  • I'm sure it wouldn't interestt anybody outside a small circle of friends truer words never spoken
  • !
  • Reading the story that inspired this song....well I re-evaluated the song...
  • Sometimes you have to smile at the truth!!! Thanks it....
