Hothouse Flowers – Give It Up lyrics

I'm coming face to face with my conscience
Coming to an understanding of myself
Clear out all the old cobwebs
Clear the old books from the shelf

This song is inspired by a good man
And his tune
Thinking good of others
Sing Amazing Grace to you
It doesn't really matter if you're all
Jumbled up inside
As long as you know love is
Endless and the world is wide
Give it up share it out
Help who you can
Talk about it

It's late in the morning, close to the time
Mary's in the alley she never stops smiling
Always love to see her -- means a lot to me
But I know she has a hard time trying to
Make ends meet

Chorus: Give it up...

Down George Street arcade where the poor children play
Gathering up charity just to help them make their day
Me I was once their age, me I was once young
But I knew I had my family to fall back on

Give it up...
