Story behind the song
Recorded - Guitar & vocals - September 1st, 2017 - Drums September 11, 2017 - 2nd vocal January 5, 2018. Song # 1 Take A Part Comments by the Author Take A Part is my first and one of my best songs. It was written on the first day of the new decade after going through the last decade with no inspiration ever hitting me. It was originally titled Let's Start All Over -, it had a more universal meaning; "If we don't start soon there will be bombs [flying] all over." In June, 1981 I changed words to "Let's start to dismantle nuclear bombs" after I had been marching in demonstrations organized by Jim Stark's Operation Dismantle. "Dismantle" is a bit of a mouthful and I have since made the song more elegant and wide ranging. P. T. C.

Lyrics
Take A Part Music & Words by Patrick Thomas Connolly You can - You can change - You can change the way we live. You can change and rearrange the world at large. So lets get down to what matters. Tell all your sisters, Tell all your brothers, Tell all your convictions. We can be a part together, We can be apart a part. We need to be together And never to fall a part. Oh Wimin, we've gotta work sisters. Being a part won't make us stronger. So look things over 'n' see we got to take A Part. Let's start to obliterate hate, Let's tear apart nuclear plants. Let's start to dismantle the war machine. Let's start taking apart nuclear bombs. Yes lets get down to what really matters. Tell all your sisters, Tell all your brothers, Tell all your believings. Everybody sing your part together, Everybody sing your part apart. It's time we all got together So we can give anyone a part. Oh people, we can try to make it work brothers. Look where we're headin' before life's all over. Also let's get it all - - together. Let's start to abandon fear, Let's tear apart nuclear subs. Let's start to stop hunger. Let's take apart nuclear bombs.
