The Least You Can Do

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy



I met a gal who doesn't eat chicken sandwiches
In solidarity for the gay friends she said she knew
My friends have all a struggled, especially the queer ones
and I have a strange feeling
not eating sandwiches
is the least that you could do

Oh, the least that you could do
Self preservation, it ain't new
Pat yourself up on your back,
The worlds a tough place yeah its true
But if you want our praise,
Well, then work hard all your days
Cause to work hard helping people
Is better than the least that you could do

I know a guy who only sips drinks at Starbucks
He's proud to tell ya 1% of their revenue
Goes to starving children, and combating global warming
to me it's a warning 99% goes to a very few


There's a wine that you can buy that saves the oysters
How they do it's not important, don't be rude
Be proud of you and pour yourself a big glass
You're the man, and now you're drunk,
You've done the least that you could do


I don't mean to aggravate your well intentions
Its just change has never come from what you buy
And I know folks who need help and their struggling
Where's the billion dollar company to help them through their lives?
