CAN YOU HEAR ME!

CAN YOU HEAR ME!

CAN YOU HEAR ME!
CAN YOU HEAR ME!
Why do we begrudge them something to eat,
even at the time When we are enjoying our Lord's birthday,
would he had done the same.
Would he had put up with all this wretchedness, NO!
Tell me why there's so much poverty in a country that says It be Christian, WHY!

Why is there so much squalor
When the country is in full wealth
Why are there children starving
While the rich are in good health
Why do these children suffer
Why do they have to freeze
Why doesn't some one help them
Why does it fall on me.
I'll teach and I'll clothe I'll feed them
I'll give them all I've got
Cos I know as far as this country goes
These kids can go and rot.
These kids can go and rot.

So when you're out and you're walking
Along a busy street
And a retched child comes running
Around your well shod Feet
Don't hit and kick and abuse them
And make them scream and cry
Because some day in the future
They could be fighting by your side
Just remember they are human
And have the right to live
Don't throw them into the gutter
'cause they are ragged kids!
'cause they are ragged kids!

Why are there no children laughing
Is it a sin for them to smile
Why can't we make them happy
And their wreched lives worth while
Smile and you'll always be welcome
you'll get a blessed smile back
Try treating them with compassion
and not a heavy whack.
Remember they are children
and only want a moment to live
So try a little charity
Look inside your heart and give
Look inside your heart and give

So when you're out and you're strolling
Along a busy street
And a wretched child comes running
Around your well shod feet
Don't hit and kick and abuse them
And make them scream and cry
Because some day in the future
They could be fighting by your side
Just remember they are human
And have the right to live
Don't throw them into the gutter
'cause they are ragged kids!
'cause they are ragged kids!

Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Can you hear me Lord
