It’s been said you should measure a man when he’s been kicked down.
Well this man knows the ways of life on the underground.
Now passing him by don’t you know won’t hurt his pride.
Now sympathy ain’t what he needs to heal his cries.
So load up on your intuition, it’s telling you right.
Don’t care about his situation, he’ll be eating good.
Now things are looking up for him
Don’t forget me now old friend.
Got you through the hardest times.
I know you’ll be doin' fine.
It’s been said you should give your life for another man.
Well all right now’s your only chance we’d all understand.
Until you’re walking in his shoes don’t be knocking?him down.
When you’re looking over your shoulder he’ll be coming around.
So don’t put him though an interrogation, he’s got nothing?for you.
Let him walk on by in this so-call nation, he’s just passing.
