Lyrics

You Do What You Can
All you can do is do what you can
You do what you do
and you hope for the best
You hope for the best
and you make your plan
Above all else you try to do no harm
Do no harm
and give the needy a hand
All you can do is do what you can
Everybody takes their turn on the wheel
As the earth revolves
and travels round the sun
And after you’re gone
it’s gonna happen again
The Gods are laughing at the plans of men
You pedal like hell and then you do it again
All you can do is do what you can
You did what you could
and you wished you did more
Don’t look inside the bag of regrets
A bag of regrets and a handful of songs
You remember the times
that they sang along
You hope they still sing
those songs after you’re gone
I guess all you can do is do what you can
You do what you can It’s all you can do
And if you’re lucky like me you’ll have a hand to hold
while life’s doing it to you
It’s a slippery slope
but love will give you hope
While you do what you can
