lyrics:  

I've been all around this great big world
I've talked with the boys and I've hung with the girls
and I'll tell you something just between me and you
Even in the darkest case
I'll always love the human race
But I'm shocked by the things people do

Yes, people do the craziest things
but I guess what I really mean
it's men that do most the craziest things I see
They're hitting the women and planting the mines
And shooting the guns at Columbine
I have got to try and see
If there's a seed of this bitter fruit in me?

(chorus:)
C'mon be kind, boys, we got to be kind, boys
life's a different step in other shoes
C'mon be kind, boys, we got to be kind, boys
Don'cha do what your mama wouldn't want to see you do

Now men are not the simplest things
as certain folks might have us think
This old world asks a lot of us every day
be a hunter, be a fighter
be a father, be a provider
all this while your spear's been taken away

It's the same dude in the barroom brawl
Who throws a shoulder in the high school hall
Who's a boy in the sandbox throwing sand
it's that stubborn boy in me and you
Who's bombing the world to his point of view
is this what it means to be a man?

(chorus)

As I look out at this crowded hall
I see here between these walls
a brotherhood of men who think they can
Put a final stop, wipe the slate
of the rougher sex's stubborn traits
There's a way to be a different kind of man
There's a way to be a different kind of man
