Why, oh why, must we fight so?
Over stupid things, like peanut butter
Who cares about peanut butter?
When there are way more important things
To be fighting for and against.
Why, oh why, must we see only badness?
When there is so much good in the world.
The bus isnít ALWAYS late, it just seems that way.
And people arenít ALWAYS horribleÖ
Between you and me,
I know a lot more nice people than mean ones.
Why, oh why, do we hate so fast?
When itís so much better to accept love
(Only sometimes, of course!)
Must we always dwell on what we donít like?
Donít we have better things to think about?
Why, oh why, would we wish the rain away
When it makes the trees and flowers grow?
You could simply make the most of it
Laugh, and embrace its fall, spread joy
To people who are grumpy and ill-tempered
Why, oh why, donít we take time
To do crazy things, like when we were five?
Take a day off from work, buy a hundred roses
And give them out to strangers!
Make somebodyís day better, believe me,
They wonít forget it.
Why, oh whyÖ?
