Bend A Little

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album High Cumberland Jubilee (1971) and on the compilation Before The Beach (1993).

Evil, it's been here all along
Good things, they just seem to have come and gone
In my life I have seen so much go wrong
And there's only one way left for us to get along

You gotta bend a little, one way or the other
Gotta leave your mind open to discover
Seems I been fightin' it all along
You gotta bend a little no matter which side your on
Soon you'll be gone

Papers, they print it every day
Housewife, wraps the garbage then throws it away
I don't guess she thinks they have that much to say
But when the time is right she'll be the lady with so much to pay

You gotta bend a little, one way or the other
Gotta leave your mind open to discover
Seems I been fightin' it all along
You gotta bend a little no matter which side your on
Soon you'll be gone

History, it teaches much too well
Nations had to rise up 'for they fell
And my eyes see the story they're trying to tell
And tonight I think I heard the final toll of the bell

We've gotta bend a little, one way or the other
Gotta leave your mind open to discover
Seems I've been fightin' it all along
You've gotta bend a little no matter which side you're on
Soon you'll be gone

Seems I been fightin' it all along
I've been a fightin' and a fightin'
Gotta bend a little no matter which side you're on
It's a lonely dirty battle
It seems I been fightin' it all along
I been a tearin' and a pullin'
Gotta bend a little no matter which side you're on
Yes sir, 'cause it seems I've been fightin' it all along
I been a punchin' and a gougin'
