I’d like to say that everything will be all right
from the time you’re startin’ out in the mornin’
to the time you fall asleep in the sweet moonlight.
I’d like to say that the world is fair,
that you can face it from an easy chair.
I’d like to say it, but it’s just not true.
You do your best, but it’s not always up to you.
So hand it over to hands that are stronger.
His hand is on you if you’ll hand it over.
