People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

So we’re different colours
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I never even met you
So what could I have done

I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

Help me understand

Now you’re punching and you’re kicking
And you’re shouting at me
I’m relying on your common decency
So far it hasn’t surfaced
But I’m sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist

I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man

Help me understand

  1. people are people, 4 generations at the generation centuries after centuries Billings the years month at the month years at the years day after day is no different hello

  2. Help You To Understand – – – why not , it's almost funny – – – Can not really say why, more this thing than another one , no it's a whole things, you derisory human beings, finally you're pissing me off, that's all – – -Et pour ce qu'il est beau Leur Monde ! Ha oui parlons -en de leur Monde ! – – –
    la plus grande partie du genre humain, soit plus de 90%! l'humanité me dégoûte et quand je les regarde s'agiter dans le vide, c'est pire encore, une envie de vomir et de vomir encore , me retourne les tripes c'est sans fin ! sure people are people so , this is the point , Ha yeah but , without me !

  3. This is embarrassing to admit and I've always liked the song but I used to think the lyrics said, you and I together in harmony. Once Ive realized what the lyrics meant I loved the song even more but still can't help say the way I once heard it every now and then 🙈
