"It Happened Today" as written by and Peter Lawrence/mills Buck....
This is not a parable
This is a terrible
This is a terrible thing

Yes I will rhyme that, after, after all I've done today
I have earned my wings

It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
It happened. Hip, hip, hooray!

We'll leave the allegory to another Bible story
Out of deference, defiance and choice
And close in on a promise, after, after all I've done today
I have earned my voice.

It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
It happened. Hip, hip hooray!
