It's Us Against the Problem, Not Me Against You
Character Education Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Lyrics by Linda K. Williams

Performed by Patricia Mikkelson


This song is available on Can-Do! Kids: Cooperative Learning
.

(1)
It's us against the problem, not me against you.
It's us against the problem; let's see what we can do.
I'll "put myself in your shoes," you'll "try on my shoes," too.
With us against the problem, there's lots that we can do!

(CHORUS)
So we'll think it through, (Think it through!)
talk it out, (Talk it out!)
our feelings share, (Feelings share!)
It may not be so easy, but we'll...
see it through, (See it through!)
and work it out; (Work it out!)
Or maybe for a while we'll just agree to disagree!

(2)
It may be that our problem got started by mistake.
Misunderstandings happen, and friendships they can break.
But when we talk it over, we'll find out what went wrong.
With us against the problem, we'll feel better before long.

(CHORUS)
So we'll think it through, (Think it through!)
talk it out, (Talk it out!)
our feelings share, (Feelings share!)
It may not be so easy, but we'll...
see it through, (See it through!)
and work it out; (Work it out!)
Or maybe for a while we'll just agree to disagree!

(3)
Sometimes an unsolved problem can make us enemies;
We shouldn't let that happen, 'cause it hurts both you and me.
We've got so much in common, that I'm sure we can be friends.
With us against the problem, we can be friends, in the end!

(CHORUS)
So we'll think it through, (Think it through!)
talk it out, (Talk it out!)
our feelings share, (Feelings share!)
It may not be so easy, but we'll...
see it through, (See it through!)
and work it out; (Work it out!)
Or maybe for a while we'll just agree to disagree!

(4)
Will you refrain from giving me advice,
Or telling me that everything will be all right?
I have the answers right inside of me,
And if you give a little time, I'm sure the answers will arrive.

CHORUS (I'll listen, I'll listen...)

(5)
When our communication is complete,
We can help the world to find its peace,
By realizing that we're all the same inside,
We can let go of judgements that we often hide.

CHORUS VARIATION
Oh, let's all listen, yes, listen.
We'll tune into everyone's feelings and wants;
Let's listen, yes, listen;
We'll help bring peace to the earth...
we'll help bring peace to the earth.
