"The Family Of Man"

(As recorded by Three Dog Night)
PAUL WILLIAMS
JACK CONRAD

This tired city was somebody's dream
A billboard horizon as black as it seemed
A four-level highway across the land
We're building a home for the family of man.

Prices are rising, the devil's to pay
Moving the mountain that got in the way
Prayer books and meetings to find a plan
Deciding the fate of the family of man.

So hard, whatever are we coming to
Yes it's so hard
With so little time
And so much to do.

Memories replacing the loves that we've lost
Burning our bridges as soon as they're crossed
Factories built where the rivers ran
Time's running out for the family of man.

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.

So hard.

So hard
So hard
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man
So hard, family of man.
