Lyrics

"Like A Disease" (Poverty)
Margie & Art Corey/BMI Copyright 2017 (c)

Intro
Ooooooo...............
It's like a disease........
Povery......

We can try with all our might
To close our eyes, but it's still in sight
It's passed down from Kin to Kin
If it's in your blood, you just can't win......
Poverty...
Poverty

Oooooo, Oooo...............

It's a pandemic, but you can't take a pill
It's a long hard trip, up a very steep hill
We know the reason, but not the why?
Curing poverty is like pie in the sky......

We need to look around, we need to care
We're just a heart beat from being there
Poverty is like a disease
It can bring a person to their knees.....

Sad song about poverty.

There's a banjo playing in the background on this song about poverty...good choice of instrument. There are not too many songs written on this subject...bravo for tackling it. Favorite lyric: We need to look around; we need to care. We're just a heartbeat from being there.
