Life on the Street
aint easy my friend
theres always someone
waiting to do you in.

I will ask you for money
just a dollar or two
and if you give it or not
well thats up to you.

I carry what I own
in brown paper sack
with the weight of the world
on my back.

I live under a bridge
thats my home
but thats life on the street
and I live it alone.
