Another Day In Paradise Lyrics

She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street

    The song talks about a big social problem that is about the people that live on the street called of "beggars" and how the society see them, pretending that these people don´t exist and nothing have been done about the problem, nobody can help them.

    This song addresses the countless number of homeless people living on the streets world wide. They see us as living in paradise-clean clothes, matching shoes, home, car, a job and still we b***h and moan about our lives all the while there is a much serious issue happening everyday. {THINK ABOUT IT}

    One of the best poptunes ever, and yes, shows a deep sick society with only one focus... me, myself and I ...

    In the US there are more homeless ppl due to the fact that they are mentally unstable. People have lost there morality due to materialism. People in deed have more value than any object on earth. The Potus sadly only cares about himself and will not tend to the issue

    The lyrics in the very first stanza shows how in the society today, people are very selfish and tend to worry only about themselves.
