Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? ...If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn't have to draft me, I'd join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I'll go to jail, so what? We've been in jail for 400 years.

Notes

This song came into being through a discussion on the ETJ Activities List about how to get young Japanese children to say sorry to each other when appropriate in English.

For children to use any language it must feel natural for them to do so. Children are more likely to want to use language when it impresses them or captures their imagination. Whether this song does either remains to be seen. It hasn't been used in any children's classes yet. Feel free to try it out!

Currently it features an interlude with sound effects. Children may enjoy shouting "I'm sorry!" after each one.

If you do use the song please let me know.
