Acappella – Dime Rhyme Segue lyrics

Consider this guy I saw the other day
Downtown early morning he stopped me and said
Could you spare some change or maybe even a buck
He scribbled "Jesus Loves You!" on a cardboard box
I looked him over quickly just so see if he was worthy
But he was dirty, he was dingy and he'd had a few too many
So I turned away and I walked on by
I was headed to Mickey D's for coffee and an apple pie
But I couldn't get him out of my mind
"When you're doing it to the least of these

You're doing it to me, " kept creepin' up in the back of my mind ya see
I forgot to be Jesus; I had missed an opportunity
I turned around to go back and be the man I know I should be
When I got back to the corner where I knew the guy was standin'
He was already gone, he disappeared without a warnin'
The only thing left was a "Jesus Loves You!" sign and
The dot on the exclamation point was covered with a dime
