She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you
You and me in paradise

(Think about it)

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can't walk but she's trying

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It's just another day for you
You and me in paradise

Just think about it

Oh lord!
Is there nothing more anybody can do?
Oh-oh whoa lord!
There must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
Cause she didn't fit in there

Oh
Think twice
'Cause it's another day for you and me in paradise
Oh
Think twice
It's just another day for you
You and me in paradise (Another day in paradise, ooh)

Just think about it
Hmm-mmm
Think about it

It's just another day
For you and me
In paradise
It's just another day
For you and me
In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Paradise) It's just another day
For you and me (Ooh-ooh)
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Paradise) It's just another day
For you and me
(Just think about it) In paradise
(Para, paradise)

(Ooh-ooh, in paradise) It's just another day
For you and me
(Hmm-mmm, paradise) In paradise
It's just another day (Paradise)
For you and me (Just another day)
(In paradise) In paradise
(Para, paradise)

    working the job that I do I see a lot of this everyday. It sounds like another drug addict who has all the social services she needs around her to get her off the street but instead she chooses to live on the street. Believe me when I say chooses to live on the street because i've seen people who want absolutely nothing to do with outreach workers and would rather be left alone to live on the street. Also don't forget that she collects a welfare check which she spends on drugs. The problem is with a government who doesn't screen for people like this and gives our hard earned money which we pay through taxes to these people to support their habit. Don't forget that this is also the type of person who wouldn't think twice about smashing in your car window and stealing from you even if you left a few cents in your cup holder because its what she needs for her next fix. They beg for change yet they don't need it because there are enough church organizations and homeless shelters to feed and temporarily shelter them while the outreach workers find them homes. It's sad but I really don't feel anything for the woman in this song. There should be no homelessness in our country.

    the song portrays the true and clear situation of a country...where in people of now are suffering from hunger..no place to go..they are homeless..ang this is very crucial..i hope that the government can do something about this...
