Little old man sittin’ on a bench All alone in the cold The wind is blowin’ up a fierce storm Through holes worn in his coat He survived a head on crash That took his family Woe, woe, woe-is-me Woe, woe, years of grief
A cute little boy walkin’ through the park Holdin’ his daddy’s hand Stops and asks, “Daddy can I give My jacket to that old man His dad says, “That’s a stranger boy You’d better just let him be” Woe, woe, woe-is-me Woe, woe the things we teach
There’s too much damn apathy Spreadin’ like the plague It’s got a head of steam, the timing’s bad So many souls to save Little old man’s a ghost-ship Adrift in a soupy fog Folks pass him by with blinkered eyes And don’t even know he’s lost
Little old man sittin’ on a bench Ice cycles in his hair He’s not breathin’, crowd looks on But it’s a little too late to care The frozen smile upon his face Expresses such relief Woe, woe, woe-is-me Woe, woe, he’s finally free
