lyrics

Crowds In The Streets
There are crowds in the streets
I worked all day
And baby you prayed
For the crowds in the streets

There’s more to life than money
For every day is sweeter than honey
But ya gotta bleed to survive
And get sick to thrive
Do we want to call this our country?

Hundreds of thousands
Of millions of houses
That got sold on lies to prioritize
The predatory sale of iffy mortgages

The teachers in our schools
Yes they are paid like they’re fools
And the CEO’s
They can steal our toes
To pay for air conditioned pools

It’s time for imagination
And for the people to re-envision
The structure of the muck
That got us out of luck
And devise our deficit solution

Power to the people
Not the politicians or steeples
We know that we are one
And the fun’s just begun
Yes, we can be more than feeble.

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
from Russia to spain and Portland, maine
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
from Waikiki to Thessaloniki
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
from Tuscon, Arizona to Barcelona
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
I worked all day and baby you prayed
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
from Waikiki to thessaloniki
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
from Tuscon, Arizona to Barcelona
there are the crowds in the street

Crowds in the streets
There are crowds in the streets
I worked all day and baby you prayed
there are the crowds in the street
