The Street Singer
I'm standing here with my cap in hand
Singing for people all over this land.
A thousand songs I know, or more,
So throw me a shilling ,
I'll sing you a score.
Not for me a band to play,
For I am singing
Through towns everyday
No hotels,no bed to lay,not enough money,
To make my way
People smile as they pass on by,
They sometimes ask me the reason Why ?
I'm not a star on a Broadway show
Or on TV I will never go.
For a smile is enough from a passer by,
The street is my stage and my light the sky.
I am not well dressed as you can see,
But I will sing you a song
Even for free!
