Be Not Too Hard Lyrics

Artist: Joan Baez
Album: Joan

Be Not Too Hard

Be not too hard for life is short
And nothing is given to man.
Be not too hard when he is sold or bought,
For he must manage as best he can.
Be not too hard when he blindly dies
Fighting for things he does not own.
Be not too hard when he tells lies
Or if his heart is sometimes like a stone.
Be not too hard for soon he'll die,
Often no wiser than he began.
Be not too hard for life is short
And nothing is given to man.
And nothing is given to man.

this is one of the most beautiful and profound songs. a truly socialist song, declaring loudly how beautiful, radical criticism and plea for change can go hand in hand with music.
