WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG

Why can’t we all just get along
Inspiring peace and harmony as a song
Sung delightfully o’er this motley throng
From Palestine to the Vietcong
O for the specter of true brotherhood do I long
Replacing sacred right for belligerent wrong
Replacing the need for war to get along.
