Hungry World
by Benny Hester

Album: Perfect
by Benny Hester


I was cruisin' the drag in my car
Flipped the radio on and it's the news
I just don't like what I hear
I've got a little sister, she was alright, Jack
But someone turned her on to a little bit of crack
I lived through the sixties but now we're hanging by a thread
I took a deep breath, turned to my girl and said

Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world
Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world

Just a fool to believe the things that they said
That it's the all American way
To give you a brighter day - but somethin' ain't right
Anybody smart, they ought to be scared
We gotta get back to the truth and some prayer
I want to feel peace and wind whistle past my head
I put down the top, turned to my girl and said

chorus:
Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world
Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world
Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world
Oh, oh, oh, baby it's a hungry world

It's hard to resist, it's hard to stay free
It's hard to exist and have your own identity
But whatever they come up with don't let 'em take you down

Anybody smart, they ought to be scared
We gotta get back to the truth and some prayer
I lived through the sixties but now we're hanging by a thread
I thought about God, turned to my girl and said

(chorus)
