“Foul Ball” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Julie McCall.
Tune: “My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean.”


In countries far over the ocean,
In sweatshops and dark factories,
Are children who don’t have a notion
Of how it would feel to run free.

Foul ball! Foul ball!
All voices are needed, both large and small.
Foul ball! Foul ball!
We’re singing for justice for all.

The soccer balls players are choosing
Are stitched by the smallest of hands.
The children, whose labor they’re using,
Need us to start taking a stand.

Foul ball! Foul ball!
All voices are needed, both large and small.
Foul ball! Foul ball!
We’re singing for justice for all.

We don’t know their names or their races.
Their languages sound to us strange.
But kids deserve rights in all places,
And we can all help make a change.

Foul ball! Foul ball!
All voices are needed, both large and small.
Foul ball! Foul ball!
We’re singing for justice for all.
