We Can Stop the Hurtin' (Chicago)

What has happened to our town There's people sleeping on the ground Cold and lost, they fear the night Left alone, they'll lose the fight Hadn't we better reach for more than just a dime Shouldn't we try to talk that boy out of his crime Haven't you had it knowing nothings getting solved Maybe we'd better, better get involved [CHORUS:] We could stop the hurtin' for awhile We could stop the hurtin' for awhile If we found a way to reconcile We could stop the hurtin' Families livin' in their cars and kids run numbers out of bars Knowing pride won't pay the bills Men work jobs beneath their skills Hadn't we better hand out more than just a line Shouldn't we try to find solutions with our minds Haven't you had it knowing nothing's getting solved Maybe we'd better, better get involved [CHORUS]
