Yeah, we gotta do something
Yeah, we gotta do something fast
Yeah, we gotta do something
If we want this world to last

Starvation, mountains made of wheat
World balance, this could not be
Some have pennies, others have pounds
Some have diamonds shining in their crowns

Fall apart, it's falling down
Do something, do it now
Do something, do something
Do, do-a-do-a-do something now

Yeah, we gotta do something
Yeah, we gotta do something fast
Yeah, we gotta do something
If we want this world to last

Destruction, bombs ready to drop
Whole world at war, it's got to stop
We gotta love to stay alive
We've got to pray that we all survive

Fall apart, it's falling down
Do something, do it now
Do something, do something
Do, do-a-do-a-do something now

Yeah, we gotta do something
Yeah, we gotta do something fast
Yeah, we gotta do something
If we want this world to last

Sacrificed our future, crucified our past
What are we gonna do, if we're gonna last?
Times are getting harder, harder by the day
Everybody help this world, everybody pray

Something for the rich, something for the poor
Something for the ones that ain't too sure
Something for the heart, something for the soul
I think a real leader better take control
Take these lads back to where they're at
Fulfill the plan of man, get back on the track
Cause we're being watched by the eyes above
Yeah, the eyes of love

Something for the free, something for the sorrow
Something for today so we see tomorrow
So much to be done, to be cleared
The rubble and trouble just seem to double each year
Bigger and bigger, getting worse
Building and building, about to burst
So do something before we're gone
And we're just a rock where a world went wrong
