The Song „Small Talk“

In August 2018, we started a Fairtrade videoproject with the Fairtrade-Town Gröbenzell / Germany.
For this Project, Tonio Geugelin and MONKÉ wrote the Song „Small Talk“.

„Small Talk“


Verse 1

It ain’t fair when you work hard
Don’t get enough bucks toiling
From the morning till the dark
You gotta spend your money smart
Send it to the right place
You gotta listen to your heart

Verse 2
Seriously, do you know
What you get
When you go
To the mall
Do you really think that you’re smart?
Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong
I think you don’t
But there’s a chance that you do
When you don’t have a clue
Listen up to the truth
Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong

Chorus
You have the power to change the world
So that every boy and girl can smile
You see the world and realize
Your decisions bring the light we need

Verse 3
Every day I wake up
Just living my life in a loop
But I gotta wake up
I gotta wake up
My first reaction was
Hmm..what??
I didn’t know that
But then I realized
We live a life full of lies
Everything comes at a price
Even rice
Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong
Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong

Chorus (repeated)

Artists for global fairness and fairtrade

We are three young artists from Arnhem / The Netherlands. Music, dance and film are our medium to express emotions as empathy, solidarity and humanity.

With this project we want to support the idea of Fair Trade and therefore make our contribution towards fairer solutions and equity.

Our project partners are the Fairtrade Town Gröbenzell and Agenda 21 Fürstenfeldbruck (Germany).

Our goal:
From 01.April 2018 – 31.December 2019 we want to publish as many „Small Talk“ performances on our website as possible.

Our vision:
An international network of people, who love music and dance and take a stand for a fair and solidary togetherness.
