I see a human being in my land,

And I know he has the same rights as me.

Whether rich or poor, I give a hand,

I pour out love continuously.


What more can I do,

But to be myself.

To help when I can, and be true,

Give them something from my shelf.


They must try and help themselves as well,

Taking it easy as they stride,

Getting themselves out the clutches of hell,

Finding a place where love abide.


I see a human being, poor, miserable,

I understand why it is so.

I'll help if I'm able,

For life is strange, you know.
