"People (We’re Only Gonna Live So Long)" as written by and Alejandro Escovedo Charles Prophet....
I see people
All kind of people
I see 'em everyday
Wealthy people
Downtrodden people
People still fighting their way

Some take a shower
Some take a bath
Some don't ever come clean
Some live like a criminal
Some live like boy scouts
Most of us live in between

[Chorus: ]
We're only gonna live so long (so long)
We're only gonna live so long (so long)
We're only gonna live...
Still got time
But never quite as much as we think (need)

Working people
Retired people
People with too much on their plate
Scary people
Harmless people
People with no where to live

Some love the Bible
Some love the Dharma
Some feel the power of both
(?)
I ain't got nothing but love

[Chorus: ]

Some people happy
Some people crying
Some people feel everything
They say we're equal
We're not all equal
I find that hard to believe

I try love you
I try to love them
I try to love me too
Some are easy
Some take work
People you know that we do

[Chorus: ]

I love people
I love people....
