Lyrics:
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 got to bend a little one way or the other
You got to leave your mind open to discover
Seems I’ve been fightin’ it all along
You got to bend a little no matter which side you’re on
Or 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 got to bend a little one way or the other
You got to leave your mind open to discover
Seems I’ve been fightin’ it all along
You got to bend a little no matter which side you’re on
Or soon you’ll be gone

History it teaches much too well
Nations had to rise up before they fell
And my eyes see the story they’re tryin’ to tell
And tonight I think I heard the final toll of the bell
We better…

Bend a little one way or the other
You got to leave your mind open to discover
Seems I’ve been fightin’ it all along
You got to bend a little no matter which side you’re on
Or soon you’ll be gone
