Lyrics
Trouble mile deep
And eight miles long
And he’s singing a song

Sweeping up the floor
In a barbershop
And he’s singing a song

Chorus 1
Well…
He’s doing just what he can
Won’t you come along and lend him a hand?

She say what am I doing
At a time like this
Just singing a song

World is going crazy
Signs you just can’t miss
And I’m singing a song

Chorus 2
Well…
She’s doing just what she can
Won’t you come along and lend her a hand?

She talks and he listens
He talks and she listens
With an open heart

They can hear the kick drum beating
In the words they are repeating
Gonna do their part, gonna do it, yeah

Chorus 3
Well…
They’re doing just what they can
Won’t you come along and lend them a hand?

Bridge
Being there for one another
Is good enough to turn the tide
When we sing our songs together
Trouble’s not so deep and wide

Whatever has you hurtin’
Sing it out for certain
Don’t you keep it inside

If you feel the kick drum beating
Won’t you start repeating
I can do my part
I can do it, do it, yes

Chorus 4
Well…
You’re doing just what you can
I can come along and lend you a hand.

Chorus 5
Well…
We’re doing just what we can
Won’t you come along and lend us a hand?

Oh, what are we doing at a time like this just singing a song?
