Easy my brother, let's talk about it

Don't you know it takes one hand to wash the other?
If you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand
The spirit of Jah, may not always strive with man
If you should see your brother falling, help him if you can

And it doesn't matter how small, it's never too little to share, no
And what does it take from your pride, to show someone that you care? Oh
A friend is a person or someone, who is always near
Who can feel your joy and know your pain
And know all the troubles you bear

Don't you know it takes one hand to wash the other?
If you should see your brother falling, help him if you can
The spirit of Jah, may not always strive with man
If you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand

There were days when the food and the shelter was just not there, no (no)
And my family and friends, they just would not hear my belly pain
If I should contemplate the alternative, is only shame, so I remain
I have no one to talk to and to whom shall I complain?
How dare another man grudge you, for your earthly gain?
I rather teach someone to fish, than give them one, no
Yes a little bit a charity sure's carry a long, aye
(Just a little bit a charity)

But don't you know it takes one hand to wash the other?
If you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand
The spirit of Jah, may not always strive with man
If you should see your sister falling, help her if you can
If you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand
If you should see your sister falling, help her if you can

It doesn't matter how much, it's never too little to share, no
And what does it take from your pride, to show someone that you care? Lord
A friend is a person or someone, who is always near
Who can share your joy and share your pain
And all the troubles you bear

Don't you know it takes one hand to wash the other?
If you should see your brother falling, help him if you can
The spirit of Jah, may not always strive with man
If you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand
And if you should see your sister falling, help her if you can
And if you should see your brother falling, lend a helping hand
And if you should see your sister falling (help her if you can)
Just help her if you can
