Can't We All Just Get Along

by Dee Long



I wrote this song in 2006. I decided to update it and create a video as it seems to be even more relevant today. Video link is here:


Ain't it hard to understand,
how the World is filled with special people.
So many thoughtful souls,
so many ways to feel.

Your Father and your Mother,
your Sister and your Brother,
The Goddess and the Gods,
always seem to be at odds.

Open up your mind,
Try to right the wrong,
I'll sing it in this song,
Can't we all just, get along?

In our time we've seen it all.
From the happy to the sad.
The sorrow and the pain.
The wind and the hurricane.

The silence and the sound,
the wealthy and the poor,
the lawyers and the laws,
always seem to be at odds.

Hear it in your mind,
See it in your soul,
I'll sing it in this song,
Can't we all just, get along?

Don't try to tell me what to think.
Stop trying' to change my mind.
If we can just get along with each other,
It's all gonna work out fine.

In my time I've seen it all,
from the weak to the strong.
The sorrow and the pain,
Can't we all just get along?
