Lyrics:

FAMILY PORTRAIT – Pink


Mama please stop crying
I can’t stand the sound
Your pain is painful and it’s
Tearing me down

I hear glasses breakin’
As I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn’t mean
Those nasty things you said
You fight about money
‘Bout me and my brother
And this I come home to
This is my shelter

It ain’t easy, growin’ up in world war 3
Never known what love could be
You’ll see,
I don’t want love to destroy me
Like it has done my family

Can we work it out (Can we?)
Can we be a family (Can we?)
I promise I’ll be better (I promise)
Mommy I’ll do anything (I’ll do anything)
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

Daddy please stop yelling (stop)
I can’t stand the sound (can’t stand the sound)
Make mama stop cryin’
‘Cause I need you around (yeah yeah yeah)
My mama she loves you (I know it)
No matter what she says it’s true
I know that she hurts you
But remember I love you too!

I ran away today, ran from the noise
Ran away (ran away)
Don’t wanna go back to that place
But don’t have no choice, no way (no choice, no way)

It ain’t easy, growin’ up in world war 3
Never knowin’ what love could be
But I’ve seen, I don’t want love to destroy me
Like it did my family

Can we work it out (Can we work it out ohhhhhh!)
Can we be a family
I promise I’ll be better (I promise)
Mommy I’ll do anything (Anything to keep you here!!!!)
Can we work it out
Can we be a family
I promise I’ll be better (I promise, I promise)
Daddy please don’t leave

In our family portrait (In our family portrait)
We look pretty happy (We look pretty happy)
Let’s play pretend, let’s act like it (let’s act let’s act let’s act like it comes)
Comes naturally
I don’t wanna have to split the holidays (no no)
I don’t want two addresses (no no no no nooo)
I don’t want a stepbrother anyways
And I don’t want my mom to have to change her last name!!!!
Ohhhhhhhh no no no no no noooooooohhhhh no no no no no

(Little kidz chorus)
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Lets go back to that
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Lets play pretend, act like it
Goes naturally

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I’ll do anything)
In our family portait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
Lets play pretend (I promise I’ll be better)
Act like it goes naturally,(Daddy please don’t leave)
Oh lets go back Oh lets go back that
Remember the days, remember the days

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I’ll do anything)
In our family portait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I’ll be better)
Please go back to that (Daddy please don’t leave)
That!!! ohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

Don’t leave… don’t leave… Daddy don’t leave…
Don’t leave… Daddy don’t leave…
Daddy don’t leave.. Daddy don’t leave… Daddy dont leave…
Don’t leave… don’t leave…
Turn around please…

1 de Maio: May Day – International Workers’ Day

1 May

Por que o dia 1 de maio é feriado? – Alguém de vocês sabe?

Vamos descobrir onde começou a história do Dia Internacional do Trabalho (ou: dos Trabalhadores): exactly, in the USA!!!

Veja o que o site “Brasil Escola” nos diz a respeito:

“Comemorado no dia 1º de maio, o Dia do Trabalho ou Dia do Trabalhador é uma data comemorativa usada para celebrar as conquistas dos trabalhadores ao longo da história. Nessa mesma data, em 1886, ocorreu uma grande manifestação de trabalhadores na cidade americana de Chicago.

Milhares de trabalhadores protestavam contra as condições desumanas de trabalho e a enorme carga horária pela qual eram submetidos (13 horas diárias). A greve paralisou os Estados Unidos. No dia 3 de maio, houve vários confrontos dos manifestantes com a polícia. No dia seguinte, esses confrontos se intensificaram, resultando na morte de diversos manifestantes. As manifestações e os protestos realizados pelos trabalhadores ficaram conhecidos como a Revolta de Haymarket.

Em 20 de junho de 1889, em Paris, a central sindical chamada Segunda Internacional instituiu o mesmo dia das manifestações como data máxima dos trabalhadores organizados, para assim, lutar pelas 8 horas de trabalho diário. Em 23 de abril de 1919, o senado francês ratificou a jornada de trabalho de 8 horas e proclamou o dia 1° de maio como feriado nacional.

Após a França estabelecer o Dia do Trabalho, a Rússia foi o primeiro país a adotar a data comemorativa, em 1920. No Brasil, a data foi consolidada em 1924 no governo de Artur Bernardes. Além disso, a partir do governo de Getúlio Vargas, as principais medidas de benefício ao trabalhador passaram a ser anunciadas nesta data. Atualmente, inúmeros países adotam o dia 1° de maio como o Dia do Trabalho, sendo considerado feriado em muitos deles.”
