There's crime in the city streets,
Always trouble in the middle east:
How’d they let things get so out of hand?
Just watchin’ the evening news:
That would give anybody the blues.
The more I know, I think the less I understand.

Oh, why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And make a toast to peace and harmony?
Why, why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And see how good getting along might be?

I’d like buy the world a round,
In a honky tonk on neutral ground
Where we can see, inside we’re all the same.
Pop a top and let the good times pour,
Til we forget what we was fightin for.
I’ll ask again, can someone please explain?

Why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And make a toast to peace and harmony?
Why, why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And see how good getting along might be?

Instrumental Break.

As different as we may be,
We’re all one big family,
If we just agree,
We’re gonna disagree.

Why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And make a toast to peace and harmony?
Why, why can’t we all just get a long neck,
And see how good getting along can be?
And see how good getting along could be?
