A Strong Foundation (Athena’s Song)

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

Start off with a strong foundation
If you want longevity
You’ve got to have good relations
To create stability

Find yourself a good location
And plant an olive tree
Surround yourself with good vibrations
Trust and honesty

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

When you start off with a strong foundation
A strong foundation
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

    This would be great with a “rap” overlay (or whatever it is called in the music business). My ears are begging to hear that. ᐧ
