Why Can't People Just Get Along

David Lee Murphy


Well they took me home in the back of a checker cab
After somebody took a chair cross the back of my head
My mama said bring him on in and when they told her where I'd been
She said why can't people just get along

Well mama never said a word as she patched my head
I figured she wasn't happy with me gettin' her out of bed
I said mama I hope you ain't mad she said come on we're going back
Hey why can't people just get along

Why can't people just get along
What a world it'd be if we could all just have fun
Cause it don't do nobody right when it comes down to a fight
Hey why can't people just get along

Now when I got trouble ain't no one I'd rather have
Than my mama next to me with a broken bottle in her hand
She went in swingin' and when she got through everybody saw her point of view
She said why can't people just get along
Why can't people just get along...

Well now things don't always run smooth in a honky tonk
And some nights somebody's gonna rub somebody wrong
And in those isolated incidents we all loose our common sense
Hey why can't people just get along
Why can't people just get along...
Hey why can't people just get along
