Pete Townshend – Can You Help The One You Really Love? lyrics

You can be cool with anyone
You can be cool with any kind of fool
You can be a fool with someone you meet on the subway
You can be cool enough
You can be cool it could be easy to be nice to those you don't even know
But can you.....
Can you help the one you love

It's easy to put our money in a beggar's hat
It's easier to write a check and that is that
It's easier to walk by, or even shed a tear
But can you help, the one, the one you really love?
Can you help the one you really love?

It's easy to be brave
It's easy to be angry
It's easy to fade
When there's no one in your home

When you get up you feel good
You take your vitamin pills
You eat your shredded wheat
And you read about the kills

When you wash your hands of the world
Think about some girl
And you wonder like you always have
Can you help, can you help, can you help the one you really love?

It's easy to be grave
It's easy to be right, when know one knows the details of your life
It' easy to be upright
When know one knows the truth, that lies behind the pages
And what you write in your newspaper
When you condemn
When you judge
When you sneer
And you call..... When you call out for a revolution
Or you call out for a bloodbath or a witch hunt
But I ask this you now, can you help the one you really love?
Can you help the one
Can you help the one
Can you help the one
You really love
