"We Don't Care" - Eric Bibb and Habib Koite

Do you know what is happening to our planet? Do you care?

When it comes to the plight of people and the planet, some don't know and don't care. Even worse, some know and don't care. Others don't know, but visit sites like this one to find out, because they do care. I keep this blog for all of them.

Lots of artists, like many of you, both know AND care. It's the best case scenario - to know, to care, AND to be taking steps toward making things better.

"We Don't Care" is a lament written by Grammy-nominated blues troubadour Eric Bibb and World Music artist Habib Koité. Bibb's Youtube page says that the song "with its funky groove, takes a sharp look at greed, ignorance and exploitation in our world today."
The song is the second release taken from Bibb's new album "Global Griot". Release date: Oct 26th 2018 on DixieFrog Records

We Don't Care
We love to fly first class
Someone else paid the ticket
We love our juicy fruit
As long as we don't have to pick it

We love our fast food

Don't care about heart attacks
We love to gossip
Don't care about the facts

We want the gold
Long as we don't have to mine it
Don't care who suffers
Or who's behind it

We want the cool running shoes

Don't care who made em
Don't care if they go to school
Or what the company paid em

We don't care, we don't care, we don't care

We want the cheap gasoline

Jump in the car and go
Don't care what the world agreed upon
In Kyoto

We heard to all save water

But we don't even try
Take thirty minute showers
While the well runs dry

We don't care, we don't care, we don't care

The gap is growing wider

Between the rich and the poor
We got everything we need
But we still want more

We don't care, we don't care, we don't care

Thanks to all of you that care enough to find out what is going on here on our planet in peril. And especially to those that take action toward building the better world we all know is possible.

And finally, thanks to Eric Bibb and Habib Koité for sharing their concern, and this song with the world.
