Drop in the Bucket Lyrics and music by Mitch Barrett and Carla Gover
It’s a crazy world we live in, bad news all around. Brothers and sisters if we’re gonna make a difference, We’re gonna have to stand our ground.
Chorus: It’s a drop in the bucket, and a bucket in a pond, And the pond fills the river, and the river rushes on. Every river swells a river, until the power can’t be stopped. And what becomes a mighty ocean, started as a drop.
Down in Alabama, a lady boarded a bus. The driver said, “You’re black, you gotta sit in the back.” Rosa said, “I’ve had enough.”
Great Britain ruled over India, made them slaves to the goods they bought. Until Gandhi took his people to the ocean, he said, “Look, free salt.”
In the alleys of Calcutta, Mother Teresa lived her life. She did much more than feed the poor. She taught us how to shine our light.
