Once upon a time when a cowboy was a duck
Sipping on pina coladas lying on a genie rug
Back when nobody had cable they were still living the dream
Amen
Amen

I love you doesn't matter when you say it in a text
Used to meet a date in person now it's on the Internet
Wherever I'm on the brink yeah I think I need a drink
Amen
Amen

(Hook)
You've just gotta lay your weapons down, forget about your problems
Just do you, no one else can solve them
Amen
(X2)

I know a girl who say she loves me but she's crazy in the head
She don't even know my name but she still wants me in her bed
There's an apple on the table, want a bite, be my guest
Amen
Amen

Tommy's out of money and his team is 0 and 4
Plus he's looking in the window at the things he can't afford
We've got neighbors on the street, why's the cycle on repeat
Amen
Amen

(Hook)

It's a new day now let's be friends (ayyo)
No babies crying, no one dying (ayyo)
Oh now let it be (ayyo)
Come on now and join me (ayyo)
Amen

Lift up your voices children
Amen
Everybody

(Hook X2)

Can you teach me how to love, can you show me how to live
Will you help me dig a well, is this the least that we can give
When it's all said and done you'll be remembered by what you did
Amen
Amen
