Stephen Hunley – Do The Right Thing lyrics

Well I must confess hey the world’s a mess
We got suits and ties that are filled with lies
Can’t see the world through their own two eyes
But life is grand when the money’s in your hand
Well you can take it with a grain of sand or a grain of salt
But don’t you get caught with the happiness you bought

And I said don’t matter where you come from
We all live under the same sun
Don’t matter if you’re rich or poor
Pay no mind to who got less or more
It’s up and down black and white
Wrong or right, no in between so do the right thing

Now don’t get me wrong the rich folk ain’t alone
It ain’t all on them so don’t condemn
Before you look at yourself down deep within
You gotta pull your own weight come on don’t be late
Don’t want to miss the bus be oblivious or anonymous
To the rest of the populous

And I said don’t matter where you come from
We all live under the same sun
Don’t matter if you’re rich or poor
Pay no mind to who got less or more
It’s up and down black and white
Wrong or right no in between so do the right thing

Go ahead and reach out your hand
Pick up your brother
Do everything that you can
To love one another

It don’t matter where you come from
We all live under the same sun
Don’t matter if you’re rich or poor
Pay no mind to who’s got less or more
It’s up and down black and white
Wrong or right no in between so do the right thing
Oh so do the right thing
