WHY WE BUILD THE WALL

WHY-WE-NEED-THE-WALLA song Anais Mitchell wrote 10 years ago based on a Greek myth. I suspect a comeback! No myth today. Listen to the familiar call and response here

[HADES]

Why do we build the wall, my children, my children?

Why do we build the wall?

 

[MINIONS]

Why do we build the wall?

We build the wall to keep us free

That’s why we build the wall

We build the wall to keep us free

 

[HADES]

How does the wall keep us free, my children, my children?

How does the wall keep us free?

 

[MINIONS]

How does the wall keep us free?

The wall keeps out the enemy

And we build the wall to keep us free

That’s why we build the wall

We build the wall to keep us free

 

[HADES]

Who do we call the enemy, my children, my children?

Who do we call the enemy?

 

[MINIONS]

Who do we call the enemy?

The enemy is poverty

And the wall keeps out the enemy

And we build the wall to keep us free

That’s why we build the wall

We build the wall to keep us free

 

[HADES]

Because we have and they have not, my children, my children

Because they want what we have got

 

[MINIONS]

Because we have and they have not

Because they want what we have got

The enemy is poverty

And the wall keeps out the enemy

And we build the wall to keep us free

That’s why we build the wall

We build the wall to keep us free

 

[HADES]

What do we have that they should want, my children, my children?

What do we have that they should want?

 

[MINIONS]

What do we have that they should want?

We have a wall to work upon

We have work and they have none

And our work is never done

My children, my children

And the war is never won

The enemy is poverty

And the wall keeps out the enemy

And we build the wall to keep us free

That’s why we build the wall

We build the wall to keep us free

We build the wall to keep us free
