You can be a fool with someone you met on the subway
You can be cool enough
You can be cool, it could be easy to be nice to those you don't even know

But can you...                      Can you help the one   you

It's easy to write a check and that is that
It's easy to walk by or even shed a tear

But can you help               the one, the one you really love?

Can you help the one you really love?

It's easy to be brave
It's easy to be angry
It's easy to fade
When there's no one in your home

When you get up you feel good
You take your vitamin pills
You eat your shredded wheat
And you read about the kills

When you wash your hands of the world
Think about some girl
And you wonder as you always have
Can you help, can you help, can you help the one you really love?

It's easy to be kind
It's easy to be right when no one knows the details of your life
It's easy to be upright
When no one knows the truth that lies behind the pages

And what you write in your newspaper
When you condemn
When you judge
When you sneer
And you call...when you call out for a revolution
Or you call out for a bloodbath or a witch-hunt

But I ask this you now, can you help the one you really love?

Can you help the one, can you help the one, can you help the one you really love
