Karma Is as Karma Does

Instrument: Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele

1. At a party I will sit
And listen to the din.
With small talk of the status quo,
I’m not one to jump in.
And all this talk of differences
And who did what to whom,
I get the feeling I should go
And clean my mental room.
Refrain:

2. I bless the people chatting now
Who know not what they say.
They’re spreading negativity
When there’s a brighter way.
And all this talk of differences
And who did what to whom,
If I agree in thought or word,
I build the sense of gloom.
Refrain:

3. And even during quiet time
Or going off to sleep,
The thoughts and words we dwell upon
Are what the night will keep.
And that self-talk of differences
And who did what to whom
Is moving on to paint the dawn.
So let us change our tune.
Refrain:

Karma is as karma does;
In God we are aware.

Refrain:
‘Cause every thought is precious,
And every word gives life.
And how we choose to spend them
Brings harmony or strife.
May we be mindful of our thoughts
And speak our words with care.
‘Cause karma is as karma does;
O let us be aware.
