Man on the Street

Lyrics

Passed a man on the street today

Pushin’ all he owned in a shopping cart

Every stitch of clothes on his back

Holes in his shoes and in his sole

He turned to me and he said

Can you spare some change

Can you spare some change

Can you spare some change

How lucky can I be

To have a place, to call home

 

Passed a man on the street today

I wanted to run and hide

Get out of the wind and rain

But I look at him and his pain

He turned to me and he said

Can you spare some change

Can you spare some change

Can you spare some change

How lucky can I be

To have a place, to call home

 

Home

Home

Home

I can run but I can’t hide

I can run but I can’t hide

I can run but I can’t hide

 

Passed a man on the street today

Gave him my coast and my hat

Shoes and the shirt off my back

Reached deep down in my pocket

I turned to me and he said

I can spare some change

I can spare some change

I can spare some change

How lucky can I be

To have a place, to call home

How lucky can I be

To have a place, to call home

 

Passed a man on the street today
