I don't know how worried to be

About this world, it's plain to see

That lots of folks

Share my point of view

 

You tell us it's bad, it could get worse

Thank you Mr Paperman for all your words of encouragement

From your Underwood every day

 

Chorus:

Look around, you'll see

Kindness and sobriety

The backbone of society

Expects to see reality

 

You've been telling us the planet's got diseases

I'm here to tell you that's just Reese's Pieces

This old world's .... just growin' up

You tell us that the end is nigh

Then it's off to dinner and tie your tie

Step up and collect your pararazzi Pulitzer prize

 

Chorus:

Look around, you'll see

Kindness and sobriety

The backbone of society

Expects to see reality

 

Instrumental

 

Chorus:

Look around, you'll see

Kindness and sobriety

The backbone of society

Expects to see reality

 

A little less attention to the seamy side

A little recognition of the brighter side of

The journeys we make

Along life's puzzling path

 

You tell a good story and your story's fine

You filter all the facts comin' in on the line

But between you and me

Reuters left something out

 

I don't know worried to be

About this world, it's plain to see

That lots of folks

Share my point of view

 

You tell us it's bad, it could get worse

Thank you Mr Paperman for all your words of encouragement

From your laptop every day

 

Chorus:

Look around, you'll see

Kindness and sobriety

The backbone of society

Expects to see reality
