May I submit for, for your consideration
A thought was born from, from desperation?
I mean, now all you gotta do is take a minute to see
The world we're living in is not trouble free

The common decency to do what you can
In some small way to help your fellow man
To try to make some sort of contribution
Not be part of the problem, but part of the solution

Common decency now, is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction
Common decency could stand some further inspection

This thought is vague, I know
And I know the chances are
And I know that there's a chance
This thought might not get far
Just give the thought a shot
A shot will not lose sight
The world we're living in
Won't lose its troubles overnight

The common decency, just lend a hand
In some small way there's such a great demand
A great demand for any hand you could lend
And one by one we watch the troubles end

The common decency now, is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction
Common decency could stand some further inspection

The common decency to do what you can
In some small way to help your fellow man
Try to make some sort of contribution
Not be part of the problem, but part of the solution

The common decency now, is that still in existence?
A little bit would go, would go a healthy distance
And head us all into the right direction
Common decency could stand some further inspection
