Fight for the Right
If people would sometimes let others be right,
Then there would be no more reason to fight.
No reason to have any enemies -
Which would help to set the world free.
But sometimes people won't give up their pride:
They want everyone to be on "Their Side".
But others see that this isn't right,
Yet that's the reason fools like to fight.
Fighting is good to show your strength,
But it also shows your short mental length.
You see, what I am trying to say
Is to let the fool have his own way;
Maybe then some would agree
That the world is a good place to be.
