That kid, that jerk,

he cuts me deep

with foul words

that make me weep,

but when mean thoughts

come to my mind,

I hear a voice

that says "be kind."

Love your neighbor

as yourself

and place your hatred

on a shelf.

He's God's own

and you are too,

so love him, dear,

as God loves you.

I know I must,

and Lord, I try,

it's just so hard

to love this guy,

but I'll do right,

I'll rise above

and fill my life

with peace and love.

Love your neighbor

as yourself

and place your hatred

on a shelf.

He's God's own

and you are too,

so love him, dear,

as God loves you.
