Get it Right!
July 21, 2020
By David Kerner
David Kerner’s song, “Get it Right!” was a winner of the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s Emma Lazarus Art Contest.
In Germany it all began
With a separation plan
They sewed a yellow star on every Jew
Now fast forward to today
When there is a plan in play
To separate the nation of the Jews.
You can label all her goods
And in fact perhaps you should
But just make sure you get it right
“From the one democracy
In a sea of tyranny
Shining like a beacon in the night”.
Will you put that on your labels?
And forsake your myths and fables?
Take a stand for truth come don’t be shy
You might lose some misled friends
But you should know that in the end
You’ll be walking with your head held high.
So come walk with us, and hold your head up high
From Israel we’ll buy, buy, buy
Look for that label – blue and white
And take a stand for what is right
And you’ll be walking with your head held high!
