DO WHAT YOU CAN

Written by Jon Bon Jovi

Tonight they’re shutting down the borders

And they boarded up the schools

Small towns are rolling up their sidewalks

One last paychecks coming through

I know you’re feeling kind of nervous

We’re all a little bit confused

Nothing’s the same

This ain’t a game

We got to make it through

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can

This ain’t my prayer

It’s just a thought

I’m wanting to send

Round here we bend but don’t break

Down here we all understand

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can

As we wave outside the window

Older loved ones stay inside

Moms and babies blowing kisses

Maybe saving someone’s life

They had to cancel graduation

It ain’t fair to Skype the prom

Our kids sit home in isolation

TV news is always on

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can

This ain’t my prayer

It’s just a thought

I’m wanting to send

Round here we bend but don’t break

Down here we all understand

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can

They built a hospital on East Meadow

In Central Park last night

Doctors, nurses, truckers, grocery store clerks

Manning the front lines

I saw a Red Cross on the Hudson

They turned off the Broadway lights

Another ambulance screams by

There by the grace of God go I

So love yourself

And love your family

Love your neighbor and your friend

Ain’t it time we loved a stranger

They’re just a friend you ain’t met yet

We’re gonna get through this together

Until I see you once again

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can

This ain’t my prayer

It’s just a thought

I’m wanting to send

Round here we bend but don’t break

Down here we all understand

When you can’t do what you do

You do what you can
