Doin' the best we can with what we got.
Doin' the best we can with what we got.
When people are acting strange, Remember we can all change
And we're all doin' the best we can with what we got.

I don't know what you've been through.
I don't see thru your eyes.
You don't know where I come from.
Life flows smoother when we realize... (chorus)

I believe that I know best,
But everyone makes mistakes.
You believe that you know the way.
We all do whatever we think it takes. (chorus)

I should've known, but it seemed
Like a good idea at the time.
You didn't know, you were misinformed.
Understand and we'll get along fine. (chorus)

Nobody's got the same.
You don't know their pain.
Everybody's doin' what they can.
Oh, we're all doin' the best we can with what we got.
