I rolled out this morning Kids had the mornin' news show on Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy
There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band One more sad story's one more than I can stand Just once how I'd like to see the headline say "Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because
Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today
I'll come home this evenin' I'll bet that the news will be the same Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane How I want to hear the anchor man talk about a county fair And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care Whoa, tell me
Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA We sure could use a little good news today
Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down FADE Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today

Karenr from Colorado I have always loved Anne Murry's songs and I think this is a song for today.
Arthur from New JerseyA number one country song that could have been number one pop. While most would consider "You Needed Me" to be her signature song, "A Little Good News" might be her best.
Staley from Dallas, TxI find it heartening to hear this song today, since so many of the problems mentioned in it have gone away (or at least made some progress). When I was a kid, it seemed like nothing ever changed. But when the Cold War ended, it seemed (to me at least) that history started moving again.
