  • She's out in the morning before nine
    Wearing her new mink coat
    And it's already 85 degrees
    She looks like she's about to
    Give up hope

    I look at the people
    Sitting at the bus stop
    People need dignity and love
    Love and understanding

    I was a fish all night
    Left out of the sea
    There was nobody
    That wasn't after me
    I was a bird, yeah
    And it started to rain
    You know I wondered
    If everybody could feel my pain

    I look at the people
    Everyone's the same
    People need dignity and love
    Love and understanding
    Hour by hour,
    The whole wide world
    One soul at a time

    And I say she whoa whoa
    Sitting on her woo woo
    She's at the whoa whoa
    She's got nowhere to go
    And though she whow whoa
    Here everyday there's nobody
    Even asks her name

    I look at the people
    Sitting at the bus stop
    Everyone needs dignity
    And love
    Love and understanding
    Hour by hour
    The whole wide world
    One soul at a time
