Just discovered this strange old song that appealed to me with mixed feelings since I am not sure it meant in 1776 what some would like to make it mean today.






Cool, Cool, Considerate Men

Oh say do you see what I see?
Congress sitting here in sweet serenity
I could cheer; the reason's clear
For the first time in a year Adams isn't here
And look, the sun is in the sky
A breeze is blowing by, and there's not a single fly

I sing hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna, hosanna
And it's cool

Come ye cool cool conservative men
The likes of which may never be seen again
We have land, cash in hand
Self-command, future planned
Fortune flies, society survives
In neatly ordered lives with well-endowered wives

We sing hosanna, hosanna
To our breeding and our banner
We are cool

Come ye cool cool considerate set
We'll dance together to the same minuet
To the right, ever to the right
Never to the left, forever to the right
May our creed be never to exceed
Regulated speed, no matter what the need

We sing hosanna, hosanna
Enblazoned on our banner
Is keep cool

What we do we do rationally
We never ever go off half-cocked, not we
Why begin till we know that we can win
And if we cannot win why bother to begin?

We say this game's not of our choosing
Why should we risk losing?

We are cool

To the right, ever to the right
Never to the left, forever to the right
We have gold, a market that will hold
Tradition that is old, a reluctance to be bold.

I sing hosanna, hosanna
In a sane and lucid manner
We are cool

Come ye cool cool considerate men
The likes of which may never be seen again
With our land, cash in hand
Self-command, future planned
And we'll hold to our gold
Tradition that is old, reluctant to be bold.
We say this game's not of our choosing
Why should we risk losing?

We cool, cool, cool
Cool, cool, cool
Cool cool men.



In fact I was l googling one of my favourite word CONSIDERATE. I was quite certain there was a verse somewhere that said Be Ye Considerate but I didn’t find the exact 3 words in that order even thoug it is certainly a Christian and virtuous principle.

The words I like less in this song were conservative and right and gold since they could seem to imply some sort of capitalism with all its greed and the dark deeds that usually accompany greed.

But back on a more positive note, CONSIDER is such a nice word... OBSERVE FULLY, PERCEIVE, BEHOLD AND DISCOVER: certainly the occidental concept of the oriental meditation.

A beautiful and enriching hobby if done right leading to more understanding, comprehension, love and wisdom one would hope.

Plus being considerate seems to be a totally lost principle and virtue completely erased from the Orwellian Newspeak Dictionary.

Be Ye Considerate?

Errrrr WHAT?

What did he say?

Sorry mate I have absolutely no idea of what he is talking about.

Maybe it is some old Neanderthal concept? Useless today especially on Wall Street or pretty well everywhere else.

BUT Yes we should certainly all take time to CONSIDER, OBSERVE FULLY. It should be taught by all parents and by all schools from the very first day. OBSERVE, THINK, ASK, QUESTION, SEE AND HEAR PROPERLY. See beyond the lies and the spin. UNDERSTAND that what they call Freedom is a thin veneer to cover a much bigger lie of greed and blood. Understand that democracy means nothing: the choice between 2 losers with pretty well the same agenda to be the puppet of the big money makers often psychopaths who really rule the world. Understand that one good president, one good ruler, one good pope or one good minister who wants to eradicate corruption will be promptly terminated with extreme prejudice. This is how the real world works. A lot of us just don’t seem to see the threads attached to the visible puppets though and foolishly believe that the puppets are the real thing.

Real Education instead of being prostituted to big money as well should teach us one and only one thing: to think for ourselves, by ourselves.

2Ti 2:7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
