Coldcut – Walk A Mile lyrics

If I could be you
And you could be me
For just one hour

If we could find a way
To get inside
Each other's mind

If you could see you
Trough my eyes
Instead of your ego

I believe you'd be
Surprised to see
That you've been blind

Walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile in my shoes
And before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes

Now the whole world
You see around you
Is just a reflection

And the law of karma
Says you reap
Just what you sow

So unless you
Lived a life
Of total perfection

You'd better be careful
Of every stone
That you should throw

And yet we spend the day
Throwing stones
At one another

Cause I don't think
Or wear my hat
The same way you do

Well I may be
Common people
But I'm still your brother

And when you strike out
Trying to hurt me
It's hurting you

(2x)
Walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile in my shoes
And before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes

There are people
On reservations
And out in the ghettos

And brother there
Before the grace of god
Go you and I

If I only
Had the wings
Of a little angel

Don't you know I'd fly
To the top of the mountain
And then I'd cry

(4x)
Walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile in my shoes
And before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes
