Lyrics

Keep A Good Thought
c. Glen King

1st. Verse:
I see a man out in the alley
With his body wrapped in rags
Looking for some scraps for supper
In a pile of garbage bags
Heard he used to be a wealthy guy
Well respected in his prime
Till the corporate world decided
He was done at forty nine:

Chorus:
Keep a Good Thought for the homeless
Keep a Good Thought for the weak
speak kindly of the down and out
Who are living on the street
Count the blessings you've been given
Be they many or they few
If it wasn't for the grace of God
That person might be you:


2nd. Verse:
There's a lady on the corner
With her skirt slit to her thigh
Hoping someone buys her services
Desperation in her eyes
Got a baby who needs feeding
She should've never left alone
Cause she knows the social worker's
Looking for a foster home:

Chorus:
Keep a Good Thought for the homeless
Keep a Good Thought for the weak
speak kindly of the down and out
Who are living on the street
Count the blessings you've been given
Be they many or they few
If it wasn't for the grace of God
That person might be you:


3rd, Verse: (spoken)
Yesterday I sat in silence
By the side of mamma's bed
Held her fragile hands in mine
While the last rites were being said
With her final breath she whispered
Son, I'm hearing Jesus call
He loves his children equally
So Keep a Good Thought for them all:

Chorus :
Keep a Good Thought for the homeless
Keep a Good Thought for the weak
speak kindly of the down and out
Who are living on the street
Count the blessings you've been given
Be they many or they few
If it wasn't for the grace of God
That person might be you:
Keep a Good Thought for them all.

If it wasn't for the grace of God
