Walkin' down the street and a man bumps in to me
it wasn't my fault but he still gave me the third degree
he was actin' tough the man was talkin' back but
you can't be wastin' your time on people just like that

I say so hey hey hey
everything's okay
an eye for and eye I know isn't the only way
so go go go turn around and walk away
you be the bigger man and that's the only way

At the bar drinkin' we were livin' with heart
this man was there he was lookin' for a fight to start
we coulda taught him a lesson if we wanted to but
we came here for a good time that's what we're gonna do

I say so hey hey hey
everything's okay
an eye for and eye I know isn't the only way
so go go go turn around and walk away
you be the bigger man and that's the only way

So don't worry my children everything's all right
I see no reason for violence I see no reason to fight
the only way I'd ever raise my fist at all
is if someone were to hurt my friends or bring the harm

oh I know its not smart
true, it may be dumb
but there's some things in this world you just cant walk away from
but I'll still try to send out this message to you
cause it''d be a better place if this message gets through

I say so hey hey hey
everything's okay
an eye for and eye I know isn't the only way
so go go go turn around and walk away
you be the bigger man and that's the only way

Hey hey hey
everything's okay
an eye for and eye I know isn't the only way
so go go go turn around and walk away
you be the bigger man and that's the only way
