Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

So now there's different colors and there's different breeds
And different people have different needs
It's obvious you hate me though I've done nothing wrong
I've never even met you, so what I could, I have done

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

So now you're punching and you're kicking
And you're screaming at me, you're relying on my common decency
I know it hasn't surfaced but I'm sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel from my head to my fist

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people, so why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

People are people
(Why should it be)
Why should it be that we get along so awfully
(Can't you understand)
Why should it be
(Why should it be)
Can't we get along 'cause people are people

(Can't you understand)
Why should it be
Why should it be that we get along so awfully
(Can't you understand)
Why should it be
(Why should it be)
(Can't you understand)
Can't we get along 'cause people are people
