The Royal Peace Song of the Day for Monday, September 12, 2011 is “How Will I Ever Be Simple Again?” by Richard Thompson. Not sure when this song was written, though, it could definitely be a reflection on America after the tragedy of September 11th.
Oh she danced in the street with the guns all around her
All torn like a rag doll, barefoot in the rain
And she sang like a child, toora-day toora-daddy
Oh how will I ever be simple again
The Royal Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
