A Plutonian Parody

June 2, 2020

For George Floyd

With apologies to “Simple Minds” The band

And those who don’t understand

“Don’t You (Forget About Me)”

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhh…

Didn’t you, see a video about me?
On the ground by a tire, struggling to breath
I could tell you my troubles and doubts
If you’d get your knee off my neck, let the air out

Life is so strange, so real and dark
Realize the useless things that we focus on
Not changing, will rip us apart
Is there light in your heart, authority

Don’t you forget about me
Don’t don’t don’t don’t
Don’t you forget about me

Must you kneel above me?
My skin color doesn’t define me

Tears keep falling, tears keep falling
Down, down, down, down

Will you recognise me?
Call my name, George Floyd

Tears keep falling, tears keep falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh…

Why my life, you must end?
From my body, my soul has drained

To serve and protect are your pretenses
More like power and authority

Don’t you forget about me
I’ll be alone dying, not a rarity
Keep playing your vile part
No time to heal, nowhere to start, for clarity

Don’t you forget about me
Don’t don’t don’t don’t
Don’t you forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?

When you walk away
Oh will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la…
