Story Behind the Song

Written with the inspiration of a second grade class, who noticed a homeless man who camped outside the school for a short period of time.

Lyrics

Homeless Man
©2002 by Marla Lewis

CHORUS:
Homeless man, homeless man
We've got to give him a helping hand
Homeless man, homeless man
Have mercy on the homeless man!

He sleeps in the grass
Has holes in his shoes
His blanket's a copy
Of the Daily News
Wheels his stuff
In a shopping cart
Back and forth
Through the county park

CHORUS:
Homeless man, homeless man
We've got to give him a helping hand
Homeless man, homeless man
Have mercy on the homeless man!

How did it start?
He'll never say
He just wants to live
Through another day
Next time you meet him
Share your bread
And be glad for the roof
Above your head!

(CHORUS)
