HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?

HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?
if you can't play basketball then you're not really nothing at all
if you can't sing or get a degree then I hope you aren't beneath me
life's too hard compared to what it should be,
give me a job or take care of me and my family!!

The whole point of this song is just to say hey can't we just get along.....
HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?
HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?

There've  been a lot of wrongs and too few rights
so that's what we're taking up here tonight,
If you think you have something to say then stand up!
and y'all get out of the way.

HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?
HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?

There's nothing you can do in a song, but say society
can right these wrongs.

HEY, CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?

  1. Well sure. People used to just get along. Republicans and democrats got along too ... because back a few years we all had common goals. Freedom and the defense of America and her allies ... and we believed in hard work and self sufficiency.

    Today we've been torn part by people who've put us all into little boxes: Rich, poor, Republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, progressive, male, female, gay, transgender, white, black, Hispanic, Asian and so on.

    We've let them define us and keep at each other's throats.

    This works to their advantage. All they have to do is say Republicans are attacking gays, or hate women, or are racist, or hate poor people, or are "pro-rape" and it whips people who are in a particular box into a frenzy.
