Hand to Mouth (勉強餬口) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Jimmy got nothing made himself a name

With a gun that he polished for a rainy day

A smite and a quote from a vigilante movie

Our boy jimmy just blew them all away

 

He said it made him crazy

 

Twenty five years living hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep

She needs her mother but her mother is dead

Just another hooker that the lucky can forget

 

Just another hooker

It happens everyday

 

She loved her little baby

 

But she couldn't bare to see her

Living hand to mouth

Hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

Hand to mouth

 

He believe in the gods of america

 

He believe in the land of the free

 

No one told her

 

Who that the gods believe in nothing

So with empty hands i pray

 

And from day to hopeless day

They still don't see her

 

Everybody talks about the new generation

Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind

But no one gave a thought to the rest of the nation

Like to help you buddy but i haven't got the time

 

Somebody shouted save me

 

But everybody started living hand to mouth

Hand to mouth

Hand to mouth

Hand to mouth

There's a big white lady

On a big white doorstep

She asked her daddy and her daddy said yes

Has to give a little for the dollars that we get

Has to give a little

They say it's for the best

 

Somebody shouted maybe

 

But they kept on living from hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

Hand to mouth

 

So she ran to the arms of america

 

And she kissed the powers that be

 

Oh and someone told me

 

Who that the gods believe in nothing

 

So with empty hands i pray

 

And i tell myself one day

 

They just might see me
