All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Hold a child’s hand,
Listen to an elderly person’s story.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Give a homeless man a home,
Send a poor child to school.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Hire a jobless person,
Feed a hungry woman.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Bring a soldier home for Christmas,
Save a child from war in their country.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Provide a poor girl with a dress.
Tell a single mother a story of hope.

All I want to do ,
Is help somebody.
And I know how to,
Yet I feel like I can’t.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
Make someone’s day,
In anyway I can.

All I want to do,
Is help somebody.
After that,
My life would be complete.
