(D. Kincaid)
Well, I’m makin’ my contribution
That’s no lie, that’s my solution
To savin’ this world from self-destruction
I keep on makin’ my contribution

I don’t work in a factory
In a corporate office you won’t find me
I don’t have to be up a dawn
I don’t have to put a suit and tie on
But I have sweat as much as any man
In any job across this land
I’ve paid my dues to do what I do
And I don’t care how it looks to you

There’s a world out there that walks the line
Between devastation and peaceful times
There are people right here who can’t find a way
To deal with the pain of livin’ each day
A song to sing and a reason to smile
A little distraction from this world a while
Are what I have to give, if you can’t see
I’ll guess I’ll leave you to your misery

Now, I don’t claim to know the meaning of life
How to feed the world or set things right
I don’t think that I can right the wrongs
Do away with injustice by singing my song
I do my job as well as I can do
And hope that I help to get someone through
And maybe bring a little happiness
To this old world, well I do my best

Well, I’m makin’ my contribution
That’s no lie, that’s my solution
To savin’ this world from self-destruction
I keep on makin’ my contribution
