Home Sweet Home Again

Project Description

The Homeless Shuffle | Bruce Ario

Zippity-do-dah we’ll put you here,
Can’t you put me somewhere near?

I’m sorry we have no place,
Is something wrong with my face?

You can use the money for this or that,
What if I want to feed my cat?

Showers on the fifth floor they cost a buck,
If I don’t have one am I out of luck?

The center will be closed from noon ’til five,
How’s a person to stay alive?

We’ll give you these sausages and eggs,
Do I have to beg?

Go downtown to look for a job,
I’m feeling a little like a slob.

You just have to get in motion,
It’s like trying to drink an ocean.
