LifestylesOfThePoor%26TheHomeless



"Homelessness in America is a Terrible Tragedy. It can happen to anybody and did to the guy in my song called "Homelessness...Livin' Under A Bridge". Check out my song about Homeless Vets called "Just Another Hero Living on the Streets"..We Can Do Better! I was homeless for just a few days year ago and it was a Life Shattering experience that I stays with me even today.... It has shaped me as a songwriter. I try and tell the stories of Life in America .."

Mother&childrenHomeless
Wall Street's flyin', While Mains Street's dyin'
Welcome to the country today
Most are livin' from – check to check
Most with lousy pay ..

They refuse to pay a living wage
for a primary full-time job
can't afford to live on $8 bucks an hour
seems like we're being robbed.

The lifestyles of the poor and homeless
it ain't all – it's cracked up to be
Some livin' in slums, others on the streets
it's a freakin' – tragedy

The CEO's get their annual bonus
Dow Jones at a record pace
Most of us toil in desperation
It's a joke, a damn disgrace

Mac Donalds and Walmart make lots of cash
buy goods from sweat shops abroad
Buy american - I say -
It's a total   fraud.

The lifestyles of the poor and homeless
it ain't all – it's cracked up to be
Some livin' in slums others on the streets
it's a freakin' -tragedy.

Nobody knows what it's like to be poor
unless you've walked in those muddy shoes
Deciding what to pay for – the rent or the food
How would you like to have to choose

You could be alone or have a family
It's a humbling place to be
No one wants to be there
It's a tragedy.

The lifestyles of the poor and homeless
It ain't all it's cracked up to be
Some livin' in slums others on the streets
It's a freakin' tragedy,
Tragedy.

The lifestyles of the poor and homeless
it ain't all it's cracked up to be
Some livin' in slums, others on the streets
It's a freakin' tragedy
It's tragedy ..
