Maureen's out on the street again
Didn't get the job 'cause she missed her appointment
She don't know if the kids are fed
They've got holes in their shoes and the cold's coming quick now
The power's off the bills ain't paid gotta jump the box from the neighbor's apartment
Space heaters and welfare checks are as good as it gets in this land of hard lessons

Don't talk to me if you ain't got the answers I need
Yeah I've got problems
Can't you see I'm trying to solve them?

Broke it off with the man in her life finally got the courage to pack up and leave now
She keeps saying she'll be all right but in her mind does she really believe it
Long lines on Piedmont Street but if you hang around you might get a bed there
Turn around and don't look back you've got a piece of your life so take it and run now

The sun is shining on you
Maureen may all your dreams come true
Broke it off with the man in her life you know she ain't got nothing better
Yeah you know she don't but she keeps on believing
The sun is shining on you
Maureen may all your dreams come true
