Lyrics

    I rolled out this mornin' the kids had the mornin' news show on
    Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon
    Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy
    It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy

    There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band
    One more sad story's one more than I can stand
    Just once how I'd like to see the headline say
    "Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because

    Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
    Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down
    Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
    We sure could use a little good news today

    I'll come home this evenin', I'll bet that the news will be the same
    Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane
    How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair
    And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care
    Whoa, tell me

    Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today
    And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play
    And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA
    We sure could use a little good news today

    Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
    Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down
    Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
    We sure could use a little good news today
