Sleeping on the ground = A song about poverty of all kinds.

Every day
Wherever your home
See the people barely skin and bone

Every night
All around
See the people sleeping on the ground

Oooh, you know
I wonder why
The rich get richer while the poor ones die
Oooh, you know
It makes me cry
To see people falling for the same old lie.

Selfishness
They say it’s right
It’s preached on television every night.

But happiness
How can it be found
While there are people sleeping on the ground

Oooh, you know
I wonder why
The rich get richer while the poor ones die
Oooh, you know
It makes me cry
To see people falling for the same old lie.

Hearts become
As hard as stone
If we refuse to do the good we’ve known

Hypocrits
We will be found
If we do nothing for those sleeping on the ground

Oooh, you know
I wonder why
The rich get richer while the poor ones die
Oooh, you know
It makes me cry
To see people falling for the same old lie.

Ask yourself
What have you done
To meet the needs of the needy ones

What goes round
Will come around
If we don’t help those sleeping on the ground

Oooh, you know
I wonder why
The rich get richer while the poor ones die
Oooh, you know
It makes me cry
To see people falling for the same old lie.

Oooh, you know,
I hate to see
A rich land blind to it’s spiritual poverty.
When those, who know
The truth are found
They’ll be helping those sleeping the ground
