SHAME




And some say "Shame" when we're talkin' up

And "Shame" for the way we are

And "Shame" cause we ain't got a big flash house

Or a steady job and a car.

Some call it "Shame" when our kids they die

From colds or from sheer neglect

"Shame" when we live on the river banks

While collectin' our welfare cheques

"Shame" when we're blind from trachoma

"Shame" when we're crippled from blights

But I reckon the worstest shame is yours

You deny us human rights
