I'm forever struck
By the people in this town
And the way they go about their world Have they given up
All the fun they used to have in adolescent xanadu Everything is too much time and trouble They must be seen as being respectable
They're too busy with their social climbing Waiting for a rise

Chorus.

Why can't people just be people 
When they were young They would wish for the summer evenings that would never end
Now the day's too long
And the key to life is locked away in childhood memories
Some people judge a man as reasonable If the wine he buys is seasonable They've time for friendship if it's advantageous And causes no pain

Chorus:

Why are people so deceitful Why can't people just be people  There is more to the world Than is offered by the soap and war found on the tv screen And there is more to this life
If you would only take the time to look within and find the key
Don't believe words when they're superficial Don't put your trust in values artificial
Let your heart do the talking for a little And feel yourself shine

Chorus:

Why can't people trust in people Why can't people just be people 
Find the time and you'll realise Life isn't too much time and trouble (repeat til fade)
