One Chance

    They sit outside in the cold rain
    Watching and waiting for that Silver coin
    Waiting, Begging, Pleading
    Waiting, Begging, Pleading

        They dream the same dream

    So now if you were walking out in the street
    You see them with nothing to eat
    Will you spare them one little coin?
    It’ll make them feel the slightest bit of joy

        So help them change their future
        Make some lives more smoother
        They only have One Chance at life

    Do you walk away because they smell like trash
    I bet you’d want to make them  disappear
    But you know that you can’t do that

        Because they are no better
        Then who we really are

    So how can you reject them
    Lead them to direction
    Can’t you see that they need help
   
        So help them change their future
        Make some lives more smoother

They only have One Chance at life
One Chance
One Chance
Only one chance

        So will you help them change their future?
        Make some lives more smoother….
