LIVING IN THE PARK


HERE HONEY TAKE MY JACKET
AND EAT THE LAST PIECE OF BREAD
WHERE SHARE THIS BUTT I FOUND
AFTER THAT I'M GONNA GO FOR THAT JOB I READ
IT'S NOT TO FAR FROM TOWN
AND I WASH UP IN THAT FOUNTAIN
SO WISH ME LUCK HONEY
AND PLEASE TRY TO SMILE
IT WILL HELP TO LOSE YOUR FROWN
AND IF I GET THIS JOB
NO MORE SLEEPING IN THE PARK
THAN WILL GO OUT IN STYLE ONCE I GET PAID
SO HANG TIGHT TILL I GET BACK TONIGHT
NOW HONEY LAID REAL CLOSE
IT'S ANOTHER COLD NIGHT IN THE PARK
AND TRY NOT TO BE FRIGHTEN
OF THE EYES THAT WALK BY AND STARK
JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES AND DREAM
DREAM THAT WE OUR WALKING IN THE SUN
NO MORE HIDING FROM THEM
AND DREAM THAT WE OUR HAVING FUN
NO MORE ON THE RUN
AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT
MORNING WILL BE HERE
THAN WILL BEG HOPING PEOPLE WILL SHARE
BEFORE THE COPS CHASE US OUT
BECAUSE THE COPS JUST DON'T CARE
NOW HONEY I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART
AND SORRY FOR THE WAY OUR LIFE'S TURN OUT
SOME HOW EVERY THING JUST FELL APART
AND STILL YOU STAY WITH ME
NOW THE RAIN IS ABOUT TO START
WE NEED TO FIND SOME COVER
THAN WHEN IT STOPS
WILL LOOK FOR FOOD IN THESE TRASH CANS
HOPEFULLY WILL FIND SOME ON TOP
IT BEATS DIGGING ALL THE WAY DOWN
AND AFTER THAT WILL GO TO SLEEP
HOPEFULLY WE WON'T WAKE UP
BECAUSE ARE TROUBLES ARE SKIN DEEP
WITH NO ENDING IN SIGHT
YOU SEE HONEY THEY STILL WANT THERE MONEY
NOT CARING THAT WE DON'T HAVE IT
AND THEY WON'T STOP LOOKING TONIGHT
AND THEY WON'T STOP LOOKING WHEN IT'S LIGHT
IF THEY FIND US WILL BE DEAD
SO HONEY MAYBE THEY SHOULD FIND US
LETTING THEM PUT A BULLET IN ARE HEAD
IT BEATS BEING HOMELESS LIVING ON THE STREET
THE WAY WE ARE DOING
NEVER SURE WHO WILL MEET
SO HONEY WHAT DO YOU SAY
NOW I KNOW OF A PLACE
IT'S JUST A COUPLE OF BLOCKS THIS WAY
WHERE WE CAN GO AND SLEEP FOREVER
BECAUSE THERE A GUY THAT I KNOW
WHO WILL DO IT FOR US
NOW HONEY ALL I NEED IS YOUR TRUST
AND A PROMISE THAT YOU WILL GO
BECAUSE ONCE HE PULLS THE TRIGGER
HE WON'T STOP THAT MUCH I KNOW
BUT AFTER THAT
OUR HELL ENDS AND OUR HEAVEN BEGINS
NOW HONEY WE ARE HERE
SO TAKE MY HAND
AND LOOK AT MY EYES AND HUN
BANG BANG, BANG BANG

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
