If There Ever Was One

Song Notes

(This is a zipper song, so you can substitute other words for “One” in the phrase, “If there ever was One…” with each repetition, as follows: If there ever was Peace, this is the Peace……This is the moment, the moment, the moment, this is the One. If there ever was Love, this is the Love that there is…, etc. (Continue as above, always finishing with “This is the One.” If there ever was Joy… One quite normal, non-descript morning, during a time when I was reading Eckhart Tolle’s book, “A New Earth”. I was on my way to feed the chickens, and suddenly really noticed the exact ground I was walking on, the very grasses, the immediate birdsong, the slight breeze on my skin, and I stopped short in wonder as the phrase “If there ever was One, this is the One that there is!” burst into my mind. That moment was the birth-seed for this song.

Lyrics

If I’da, if you’da, if he’da, if she’da,

If we only had, we’d be there by now.

Well maybe the next time, if it ever gets here,

We’d really try to get it all together if they’d just show us how.

If we could’a, we would’a, cause we should’a, if they would’a’

We could’a had it all done and be good and ready to quit.

If we only had done what we could’a, would’a, should’a, could’a, would’a, should’a,

Aw, we beddah fuhgedaboudit…

If there ever was One, this is the One that there is,

If there ever was One, this is the One that there is,

If there ever was One, this is the One that there is,

This is the moment, the moment, the moment,

This is the One!

Optional words:  If there ever was Peace, Love, Joy, etc.
