On the streets I have no home, In a doorway all alone, At night it gets so very cold, No one for warmth to cuddle or hold, Day after the day it's always the same, People rushing past in the fast lane, Somewhere to go something to do, Oh why can't I have a life like you, Instead I'm sat here on my pitch, Waiting praying to get that hitch, I have my regulars that stop and smile, That makes getting cold worth the while, Sat out here it's like ground hog day, So until I get my break, That's just the way.
