Brotherhood of Man by Robert Morse, Ruth Kobart & Sammy Smith

Now, you may join the Elks, my friend,
And I may join the Shriners;
And other men may carry cards
As members of the Diners.
Still others wear a golden key
Or small Greek letter pin;
But I have learned there’s one great club
That all of us are in.
There is a Brotherhood of Man,
A Benevolent Brotherhood of Man,
A noble tie that binds
All human hearts and minds
Into one Brotherhood of Man.
Your lifelong membership is free.
Keep agivin’ each brother all you can.
Oh aren’t you proud to be
In that fraternity,
The great big Brotherhood of Man?
So, Wally, before you consider firing everybody, remember this:
One man may seem incompetent,
Another not make sense,
While others look like quite a waste
Of company expense.
They need a brother’s leadership,
So please don’t do them in.
Remember mediocrity
Is not a mortal sin.
They’re in the Brotherhood of Man,
Dedicated to giving all we can.
Oh, aren’t you proud to be
In that fraternity,
The great big Brotherhood of Man?
You, you got me;
Me, I got you, you!
Oh, that noble feeling,
Feels like bells are pealing,
Down with double-dealing,
Oh Brother!
You, you got me;
Me, I got you, you!
Your lifelong membership is free.
Keep agivin’ each brother all you can.
Oh aren’t you proud to be
In that fraternity,
The great big Brotherhood of Man?
