C A7 You may return to your homes now, citizens. D7 G7 C G7 You may come back to the nest. C A7 We had a little spot of trouble - it's true, D7 G7 But things turned out for the best. F C Yes, a little radiation got loose F E7 And people ran for the bus, F C A7 And let me tell you if you live downwind, D7 G7 C You'll be hearing from us.
You may come back to your homes now, citizens.
The town is perfectly clean.
And please believe us, you have nothing to fear
If now and then you turn green.
Three Mile Island is a wonderful place,
And the future is now.
Oh, by the way, I wouldn't eat that egg
Or drink the milk from that cow.
G7 You just might glow in the dark, grow feathers just like a lark, C Stand in the fountain and light up the park. G7 Have a nice day, the chance is you may C G7 C Blow yourself and half of Pennsylvania away!
You may relax in your homes now, Harrisburg.
For sure the crisis is past.
Oh sure, we might have a problem or two,
The next one might be the last.
And yes, the wave of the future is here -
It's reassuring to know:
There'll be no need of a suntan next year,
For we'll be wearing our glow.
And we'll all glow in the dark, grow feathers just like a lark,
Stand in the fountain and light up the park.
Have a nice day, the chance is you may
Blow yourself and half of Pennsylvania away!
(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1980)
