Labi Siffre lyrics : "Thank Your Lucky Star"

Five years old
Rice pudding cold
What, not moving

Pick up the spoon get grooving
There's kids your age and younger
Fat and thin with hunger

So you can thank your lucky star
There's someone somewhere
Much worse off than you are


[chorus]
So if you're stabbed in the back say ta

Que sera sera
You can thank your lucky star
There's someone somewhere

Much worse off than you are

Yes I know you're hungry and we've got food to spare

We're throwing our surplus food away
But don't think we don't care
We can't afford to send the stuff

To the places where you are
But you can thank your lucky star
There's someone somewhere

Much worse off than you are



When you find you have to pay
But the phone calls go astray
When the bus fares seem to rise

Every time you close your eyes
When you're old enough to go to war and bleed
But someone tells you what you can't read

You get thirty years for robbing a train
You get ten for murder, now that's insane!


[chorus]

What do you mean you're poor

When you can't have any more
When it's napalm guns and bombs we need
We'd like to help you, yes indeed

But we've got to protect the state
So I'm afraid you'll have to wait
But you can thank your luck star

There's someone somewhere
Much worse off than you are


[chorus]
[chorus]
