WHERE HAVE ALL THE WISE MEN GONE?

WHERE HAVE ALL THE WISE MEN GONE?
(To melody of “Where have All the Flowers Gone” by Pete Seeger)

Where have all the wise men gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the wise men gone?
I’d like to know
Where have James and Thomas gone?
Into books read by no one
We need them to return
We need them to return

Where have all the leaders gone?
Long time passing
Where have our great leaders gone?
I’d like to know
Abraham could lead us yon
Restore a once great spirit gone
We need them to return
We need them to return

Where have all the problems gone?
None is passing
Where have just solutions gone?
They never show
Where have honest people gone?
Not to Washington, not one
We need them to return
We need them to return

Where has this great country gone?
Some say passing
Where has this one nation gone?
Long time ago
Stood up men who sought to be
Men of high integrity
We need them to return
We need them to return
