CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?

CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?
(To tune of “Can’t We be Friends,” by Kay Swift and Paul James)

Why can’t we people just get along?
Right what’s wrong?
Let’s begin to make amends.
Now, don’t you think it’s time?
People, can’t we be friends?

Why only seek solutions in war?
Why? What for?
One begins as soon as one ends.
You’d think we’d learn one time.
People, can’t we be friends?

I say I’m right, still I don’t want to fight.
Imagine we could disagree, and that’d be quite alright
with me.

Why quote the bible chapter and verse?
Then go curse
someone in your eyes who offends.
Say, don’t you think it’s time?
People, can’t we be friends?

Your home’s divine, while a thimble is mine.
Why should I care, feel despair? Climb that jealousy
vine?

Why can’t we learn to live and let live?
To forgive
if somebody’s rude or pretends?
I think it’s about time.
People, can’t we be friends?
