Donna Hightower – This World Today Is A Mess lyrics

What you do, what you say
Has a lot to do in how you live today
What you want and what you make
Everybody knows it's only what you take

What you see and what you hear
When it comes around again it's not too clear
You say yes, they say no
Everybody's talking everywhere you go

You try to give another man a helping hand
He will take your kindness for a weaker stand
Never do to others what they do to you
Try to find another way to make it through

What I say is what I know
Try to get a favor going from door to door
You stop and pray, it's out of style
You a step ahead it takes a hundred miles

What I say is what I know
Try to get a favor going from door to door
You stop and pray, you know that's out of style
Get a step ahead it takes a hundred miles

You try to give another man a helping hand
He will take your kindness for a weaker stand
Never do to others what they do to you
You'd better do it to them before they do it to you

What you do and what you say
Has a lot to do in how you live today
What you want, what you make
Everybody knows it's only what you take

And now what you see, and what you hear
When it comes around again it's not gonna be the same thing
Because you're gonna say yes and they're gonna say no
And everybody's gonna talk and talk
And bla, bla everywhere you go

And you know something?
You try to give another man a helping hand
You know what he's gonna do?

He's gonna take your kindness for a weaker stand
You try to do for others what you'd like them to do to you
Ah, ah, forget it, it's gonna be some other kind thing

So you try to give another man, ah, listen, a helping hand?
He will take your kindness for a weaker stand
Never do to others what they do to you
