Everybody needs a little place they can hide
Somewhere to call their own
Don't let nobody inside
Every now and then we all need to let go
For some it's the doctor
For me it's rock and roll
For some it's a bottle
For some it's a pill
Some people wave the bible, cause it's giving them a thrill
Others point their finger if they don't like what they see
If you live in a glass house, don't be throwing rocks at me

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

Check out mr. politician in his suit and tie
But when the doors are closed there ain't nothin' he won't try
Meanwhile mr. medicine's treating his best friend's wife
Tipper led the war against the record industry
She said she saw the devil on her mtv
To look into the cabinet, it takes more than a key
Just like jimmy's skeletons and his ministry

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright
Hit it now

For some it's the needle
For some it's the kill
Some people wave the bible, cause it's giving them a thrill
You can spend your money before you get your pay
With a toss of the dice, you can piss it all away

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

Alright
We all need
A little shelter
We all need
A little shelter
Just a little helper
Oh lord, it's gonna be alright
Come on now
Come on now and shelter me now
Just a little helper
Shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter
We all need
We need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and it'll be alright

    Song is trying to say no matter who you are and from what walk of life, socio economic background, everybody needs something to make them escape from this world and to take off their mind from this world. For some its a bottle for some its a pill for others its the bible coz it is giving them a thrill.
