"Hiroshima" as written by Joseph Cangelosi, Glenn Hansen, Tony Portaro and Tony Bono....
Fly little bird to Hiroshima
In the way a load
Speak the magic word to Hiroshima
Let the sky explode
Hiroshima, Hiroshima

There's a shadow of a man at Hiroshima
Where he passed the moon
In the wonderland at Hiroshima
Where he died too soon
And the world remembers his face
Remembers the place was here

Fly little bird to Hiroshima
In the way a load
Speak a magic word to Hiroshima
Let the sky explode
And the world remembers his name
Remembers the flame was Hiroshima
Hiroshima, Hiroshima

There's a shadow of a man at Hiroshima
Where he passed the moon
In a wonderland at Hiroshima
Where he died to soon
And the world remembers his name
Remembers the place was here
Hiroshima

And the world remembers his name
Remembers the flame was
Hiroshima, Hiroshima, Hiroshima...

    My OpinionThis song is obviously about the first ever atomic bomb that blew up Hiroshima. Alas, I hope someone can interpret the words of this song because everything except the explosion and the shadow of a man who died to soon don't make too much sense to me. For example, what's with the little bird?

    With that said, if the man didn't start a war and enslaved other nations (like China), he wouldn't have "died too soon". Can you imagine a similar song about the Germans that "died too soon"? Sandra herself is German and probably wouldn't dare to sing the same song about her own people.

    But there's something more phoney about Hiroshima references - and that is the complete lack of Nagasaki
    references. It shows the true faces of referers. They probably never even bothered to research what actually happened. I know Sandra just covered this song, but still.
