You Canít Squeeze Water From A Stone

You canít squeeze water from a stone.

No, you canít squeeze water from a stone.

You know that even Moses tried.

Before he left this earth he cried that

You canít squeeze water from a stone.

 

You canít make people be your friend.

No, you canít make some people be your friend.

You can offer them your hand

And hope that they will understand,

But you canít make people be your friend.

 

And you canít make people love you too.

No, you canít make some people love you too.

Offer them your heart,

But it just may fall apart.

No, you canít make some people love you too.

 

You can try to love them anyway.

Yes, you can try to love them anyway.

Itís the hardest thing youíll do,

But if your love is true

You will try to love them anyway.

 

But you canít squeeze water from a stone.

No, you canít squeeze water from a stone.

Even Moses tried.

Before he left this earth he cried that

You canít squeeze water from a stone.
