Sleeping on the ground

Sleeping on the ground

A Poem by Christopher Kneipp
"

This is a song that screams reggae in style as best I can tell.

"

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

    Every night
    And all around
    See the people sleeping on the ground

Chorus:    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.


Chorus: 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

Chorus: 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

Chorus:    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  (X2)
    They'll be helping them .......
    To get off the ground.
