JUST BECAUSE


Just because you tell me to
Iíll swim to Spain, Iíll fly for you
But, I will never hurt some folks
Just because you ask me to

Iíll rid the world of rats for you
Of snakes and sharks and sickness, too
But, donít tell me to hurt someone who never did hurt me or you

Three are too many folks Iíve never seen
Who could be friends of mine
And Iíll shake their hands, bake bread with them
Even though theyíre not your kind

I am not old, but I am wise
Too wise to hurt some other guys
Some guys who will not live like you
Just because you want them to
For you
