From video stew

May I submit for, for your consideration
A thought was born from, from desperation?
I mean, now all ya gotta do is take a minute to see,
The world we're living in's not trouble free
The common decency to do what you can
In some small way to help your fellow man
To try to make some sort of contribution
Not be part of the problem, but part of the solution
The common decency, now is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction,
Common decency could stand some further inspection
This thought is vague, I know
And I know the chances are
And I know that there's a chance
This thought might not get far
Just give the thought a shot
A shot will not lose sight
The world we're living in
Won't lose it's troubles overnight
The common decency, just lend a hand
In some small way there's such a great demand
A great demand for any hand you can land
And one by one we watch the troubles end
The common decency, now is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction,
Common decency could stand some further inspection
The common decency to do what you can
In some small way to help your fellow man
Try to make some sort of contribution
Not be part of the problem but part of the solution
The common decency, now is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction,
Common decency could stand some further inspection
