People Are People Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
I can't understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
Verse 4
People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
Verse 5
Help me understand
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
I can't understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Verse 8
Help me understand
