Lyrics

Traffic jams and frauds and scams / People who don’t give a damn
Politics and selfie sticks / Crazies killing just for kicks
News that’s fake and bad remakes / Frogs with three legs in the lakes
Loss of jobs and banks that rob / “Meat” that’s just a greasy blob

Just ignore the closing stores / And shop online for more and more
Pile up debt with no regret / There’ll always be a safety net
Spying drones no chaperones / Folks enamored with their phones
Skin so tanned and sleight of hand/ Your profile says your life is grand

And if I said I’ve always given my best
I would be lying
But still I know this life’s an ongoing test
And I’ll be trying hard to pass along some

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness
Gentleness, faithfulness and self control

Food enhancers causing cancers / Looking for the easy answers
He who tries still wins a prize / Cheap imported merchandise
Auto fumes and oil tycoons / We all can sing with auto-tune
It’s fine as long as I’ve got mine / Someone else will toe the line

And if I said I’ve never put myself first
I would be lying
But still I know the world is dying of thirst
We should be trying to quench it, drench it with

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness
Gentleness, faithfulness and self control

I don’t believe what’s done is done / Let’s find a way back to square one
Let’s put the hate back on the shelves / And love our neighbors as ourselves
I don’t believe that it’s too late / To try and rehabilitate
A single act of kindness is the perfect place to start
