Oh, we close our eyes and refuse to see

Life’s every day corruption

Even the doubters cannot hide

The pain from war’s destruction

 

So I welcome sleep at the end of day

With a prayer that there’ll be no war

But each morning I wake only to find

Things are worse than the day before

 

The world is full of problems

What can we do to solve them?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

Bam-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

Bam-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

 

Oh, I remember when grass used to be a thing

To water and cut for Dad

But now I find as a form of slave

People say it can hurt you bad

 

Oh, I also found in these changing times

The love is a thing of the past

Save the children from these people

One more shot could be their last

 

There surely is a problem

What can we do to solve them?

Hmm, hmm.

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

Dilili-li-li-li-li-li

Ba-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

Dilili-li-li-li-li-li

Ba-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam (repeat)

 

Oh, crowds of people running through the streets

With signs showing discontent

Oh, “Stop the war!”, “Lower taxes!” “Cut down unemployment!” Yeah!

 

But to the people of our nation

We sing our humble cry

It’s time to get our minds together

Love this world, don’t let it die!

 

Can’t you see these problems?

It’s up to us to solve them

Oh yeah!

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

I’m gonna try

Don’t you wanna try too?

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

To the people of our nation

Help this generation

 

I’ll try, you’ll try Maybe we’ll all get by

Save the people,

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

Save the people

Oh, save the children, yeah

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

Help us! Help us!

Come on people, help us!

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by
