Be Human

This song is by John Lithgow and appears on the album The Sunny Side of the Street (2006).

There's a very simple lesson
But it's easy to forget
And I promise, you'll regret it if you do

That if you're always kind and gentle
With your family pet
He'll be just as kind and gentle
With you

Be human, animals can cry
Be human, it's easy if you try
Don't go around with a heart of stone
Or you'll be sorry and on your own

Be human, have a tender word
For every animal and bird

If we would all be human
This world would be an rhyme
So be human all the time

Share a tasty carrot with your parrot
Serve your chimpanzee a part of cheese
Sip a sasperilla with your camel or gorilla
With kind regards to all of them from me

Be human, animals can cry
Be human, won't you even try?
Don't think you're wonderful just because
You weren't born with a tail and claws

Be human, have a tender word
For every animal and bird

It's futile to be brutal
That won't get you a dime
So be human all the time

A true cat can't be human
But you can
