Notre Dame is Burning

I watched Norte Dame cathedral burning People outside in the streets crying, singing and praying So sad that this icon was burning Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame Please do not burn away Please do not take away our place of worship Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame You are a symbol of class, grace and culture Culture for generations of true believers Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame I hope that the three churches in Louisiana get the same The same rush to help and to rebuild The same out pouring of love The same out pouring of justice Note Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame Norte Dame is burning and everyone cares Three churches burned down in Louisiana and I don't see any people in the streets No crying, No singing, no praying Louisiana burns and nobody cares or notices Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame Louisiana churches are burning just like New York was burning with Aids and hatred in the 1980s The fire still rages but all the attention goes to Paris and Norte Dame Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame As much as time changes most things stay the same The only thing that changes is the date on the calendar What a shame Most High please stop the Louisiana church burnings and hatred of all kinds Bless us with cures for these modern day plagues and stop the cathedral from being destroyed Norte Dame, Norte Dame, Norte Dame
