Story

The lyrics here are a continuation of the "finite energy" theme winding through Dukkha's Nemesis. As in: we've got finite energy to spend; why not use it to enhance our relationships, our local communities, our world. WHY spend such a precious resource (our short time here) on worsening conditions for those around us? So, yeah, basically it's shut your mouth, and do some good (except when loudly voicing an opinion IS the catalyst for doing some good, right?). Peace.  

Lyrics

DO SOME GOOD (SHUT YOUR MOUTH)

©2008 Patty Morris

 

SHUT YOUR MOUTH

WHY YOU GOIN ROUND TELLIN ALL THEM LIES

ZIP IT UP

ALL YOU WANNA DO IS MESS WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES

DO SOME GOOD INSTEAD

AND SPREAD IT ALL AROUND

 

DO SOME GOOD

ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND HELP SOMEBODY WHO DOWN

YOU SPENDIN YOUR TIME AND ALL MINE

SPREADIN RUMORS AROUND THIS TOWN

WHY DON’T YOU DO SOME GOOD INSTEAD

AND SPREAD IT ALL AROUND – THIS TOWN

 

SAD AM I, SAD FOR THE WORLD

SO SO SAD, AM I

SAD FOR THE WORLD

SAD, SAD AM…I?

 

WELL YOU CAN TALK LIKE YOU’RE RIGHT

AND EVERYBODY ELSE IS WRONG

OR YOU CAN HELP BUILD A BRIDGE

FOR EVERYONE TO GET ALONG

HEED THE WORLD!  DO SOME GOOD!

SPREAD IT ALL AROUND

 

WELL YOU CAN DO RIGHT BY US

CUZ WE ONLY WISH YOU WELL

YOU CAN’T BE SPREADIN HEAVEN

GIVING EVERYBODY HELL

LISTEN TO THE WORLD!  DO SOME GOOD!

SPREAD THAT GOOD AROUND –

 

WHY CAN’T YOU BE NICE?!

‘STEAD OF GIVIN THE WHOLE WORLD YOUR CURSE

IT DON’T SEEM RIGHT

EVERYBODY HURTS – YOU DON’T DO NUTHIN

OR YOU MAKE IT WORSE

WHY DON’T YOU DO SOME GOOD INSTEAD

AND SPREAD THAT GOOD AROUND

 

YOU SAY YOU TALK TO JESUS

SOME PEOPLE DO TALK TO THAT MAN

OR YOU CAN TALK TO GOD HIMSELF

FIND PEACE DOWN INSIDE YOU, MAN

C’MON, ANY WAY YOU CAN

TALK TO BUDDHA, YEAH –

N’ SPREAD SOMMA THAT BUDDHA AROUND

 

TALK TO BUDDHA, OR THE MAN ABOVE

THEN LISTEN WHAT THEY’RE TRYING TO TELL YOU

CUZ ALL THEY’RE TALKIN BOUT IS  LOVE

 

OOH, JUST ABOUT LOVE

MM, MM, ABOUT  LOVE

LOVE IS WHAT WE’RE LIVIN FOR

LOVE CAN PUT AN END TO WAR!

 

C’MON AND “DO SOME GOOD” (everybody just)

                      “DO SOME GOOD” (everybody, c’mon)

                      “DO SOME GOOD” (ooh, well, yeah)

                      “DO SOME GOOD” (talk to Buddha)

                     “DO SOME GOOD” (that’s right, together now)

                     “DO SOME GOOD” (help somebody)

                     “DO SOME GOOD” (help somebody who down)
