Stevie Wonder – Living For The City

Posted @ March 2, 2012 by under Single Lyric / Stevie Wonder /

A boy is born in hard time Mississippi
Surrounded by four walls that ain’t so pretty
His parents give him love and affection
To keep him strong moving in the right direction
Living just enough, just enough for the city…ee ha!

His father works some days for fourteen hours
And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
His mother goes to scrub the floor for many
And you’d best believe she hardly gets a penny
Living just enough, just enough for the city…yeah

His sister’s black but she is sho ’nuff pretty
Her skirt is short but Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school she’s got to get up early
Her clothes are old but never are they dirty
Living just enough, just enough for the city…um hum

Her brother’s smart he’s got more sense than many
His patience’s long but soon he won’t have any
To find a job is like a haystack needle
Cause where he lives they don’t use colored people
Living just enough, just enough for the city…
Living just enough…
For the city…ooh,ooh
[repeat several times]

His hair is long, his feet are hard and gritty
He spends his love walking the streets of New York City
He’s almost dead from breathing on air pollution
He tried to vote but to him there’s no solution
Living just enough, just enough for the city…yeah, yeah, yeah!

I hope you hear inside my voice of sorrow
And that it motivates you to make a better tomorrow
This place is cruel no where could be much colder
If we don’t change the world will soon be over
Living just enough, just enough for the city!!!!

La, la, la, la, la, la,
Da Ba Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Ba Da Da Da Da Da Da Da
[Repeat to end]

    Wow i just like carly rae jepsen, this lady possesses a sweet, beautiful look and her tunes is very trendy. This girl is also a success story like Justin Bieber. A girl next door with some concealed ability. The girl definitely warrants to be popular.

  26. Kitty says:

    This song could be used to every war. The lyrics are rellay sad, because it makes you think of how much each soldier gives up, to maybe never even being known today for his heroic contributions. The Doors definitely explores this saddened point of view, by the person eating and enjoying his breakfast, while the news talks about the death of an unknown soldier. It will only be a passing thought for that person eating his breakfast. Nothing to be remembered, but being an unknown soldier.
