Hey, woo
Hey, woo

Broken man and his wife with a child ain't got no hope
Outta luck, outta time, old man winter's comin' on

One meal ain't enough for three
Is this the way it's supposed to be
Daddy just walked out, mama raisin' family

Hey put your foot down and take a look round
You don't like what you see
No no no no no no
Hey put your foot down and take a look round
You don't like what you see
No no no no no no

Hey, woo
Hey, woo

Get in line there's no jobs and the kids are shootin' dope
Outta work outta time, mamma's startin' to lose hope, hope

It ain't enough to pray
When you got no place to stay
Daddy just walked out, mama raisin' family

Hey put your foot down and take a look round
You don't like what you see
No no no no no no
Hey put your foot down and take a look round
You don't like what you see
No no no

Dear Mr. President
There is trouble on the streets
Now is the time and the test we must meet
Dear Mr. President,
Take a look around
Please Mr. President,
Put your foot down
No no no

Hey, woo
Hey, woo
