song - The House We Live In

There's the big house

Where those rich folks live

And I can tell you

Something about it

It's spacious and clean

And luxury-laden

With grounds so pristine

There's no doubt about it

They sleep in their beds

And eat at a table

In exquisite bathrooms rich-folks relieve themselves

They may or may not

Be as happy as me

Because in the end we all live In ourselves

CHORUS: And what was it like to be Mother Theresa?

Gandhi or Jesus or Martin Luther King?

Who felt the same oceans

Beheld blazing sunsets

Smelled the same flowers

And heard the birds sing?

 

And what is it like

To live in that big house

Luxury laden with comforts galore?

I cannot lie that I'm filling with envy

Desirous of wealth, I keep craving for more

CHORUS: And what was it like to be Mother Theresa?

Gandhi or Jesus or Martin Luther King?

Who felt the same oceans

Beheld painted sunsets

Smelled fields of flowers

And heard the birds sing?
