    Backstory:
    A song based on the quote from philosopher George Santayana, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."                                                       

    Lyrics:
                                                      
    You’re Gonna Repeat It Words and Music (Verse) She said that she’d love him, ‘Til the end of time. He’d heard those words many times before, But those other ladies all had been lyin’. Thought this one would be different, Now he had something to last. Woke up one morning, she was gone, Just like it was in the past. (Chorus) If you have a problem, You know you can beat it. If you have a real tough job, Hard work will complete it. When every new day comes, You wake up and greet it. But if you don’t remember the past, You’re gonna repeat it. (Verse) His new boss called him the best man, He could do the work of 3 men. Other bosses told him the same thing. He never thought about it again. The new boss said he was sorry, He was the last one hired, Business was soft, he got laid off, It sounded so much nicer than fired. (Chorus) If you have a problem, You know you can beat it. If you have a real tough job, Hard work will complete it. When every new day comes, You wake up and greet it. But if you don’t remember the past, You’re gonna repeat it. (Bridge - Spoken Rhythmically) Don’t have to be a genius, it’s common sense, There’s a lot of truth living right in your past tense. Doing the same thing is your vanity, A different outcome is just insanity. Repair shops are gone since nothing will last, Nobody knows what went down in the past. Ask a kid today about some history, You’ll get a blank stare - it’s a mystery. Twitter and texting are the new Gods, Facebook and Periscope get the applause. We repeat mistakes it’s really rotten, Because the past is just forgotten. (Chorus) If you have a problem, You know you can beat it. If you have a real tough job, Hard work will complete it. When every new day comes, You wake up and greet it. But if you don’t remember the past, You’re gonna repeat it. (Verse) Every time I watch the news, I know that something ain’t right. People so full of hate Everybody’s itching for a fight. Politicians keep on talking, Nobody’s minding the store, No one is paying attention, To how it went down before. (Chorus) If you have a problem, You know you can beat it. If you have a real tough job, Hard work will complete it. When every new day comes, You wake up and greet it. But if you don’t remember the past, You’re gonna repeat it.
