I bought a product they should not have sold
I called the helpline
They put me on hold
I've been waiting for an hour
Now my phones losing power
And I'm gonna explode
I hear 'How may I help you today?
I know a very rude answer, but I'm wondering, hey

[Chorus:]
What if everybody talked like my friend Jesus?
If everybody love like my friend Jesus
If everyone forgave like my friend Jesus
It would give the world a new beginning
What if this is like an early inning?

I state my business
She puts me on hold
I'm back to thinking I'm gonna explode
And the dog wants dinner
And the music they're playing is the soundtrack of hell
You say 'two wrongs don't make a right'
Just try listening to Celine Dion all night

But if everybody talked like my friend Jesus
If everybody love like my friend Jesus
If everyone forgave like my friend Jesus
If we want to mend world relations
Surely I can show a little patience

I've been waiting around for this world to change
Another day cut loose
Another lame excuse
I've got the why and how to start here and now
Then my cell phone drops the call
And I spew out vitriol
And as my fist goes through the wall
I here a voice say 'be the change you wanna see!'

Cause if everybody love like my friend Jesus
If everyone forgave like my friend Jesus
What a changed world this could be
Starting now maybe I can start the change in me
