When you think you’ve got it bad, and you’re feeling kinda sad,
Just look around and check your neighbor out.
You’ll find when you survey, all his troubles on display,
You haven’t got a thing to gripe about.

Help your neighbor if you can, and you’ll feel better for it.
Your problems will get smaller by helping just a bit,
And you will find, by helping him that you have gained a friend.
With half the work and twice the fun, your troubles soon will end.

Make the move, offer a hand and alleviate some pain.
Troubles soon will disappear, and you can break the chain.
Make every effort to get along with family and others,
For life’s not always a picnic, we must help one another.
