whatever happened to love

 

 

Old man living, down on the street

Donít ask for much just something to eat

Looks to the sky, prays to the heavens above

People passing, no time today

They all look the other way

What is there to say? Whatever happened to love?

 

I ainít rich an I ainít poor

But there should be some kind of law

Making sure nobodyís left alone

You got silver, you got gold

But that wonít stop you getting old

You will still go cold

Like a piece of stone

 

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?

 

Rich man poor man nothing between

Living together but never seen

The world can sometimes be just a little bit blind

Life can be easy life can be cruel

Why does it always feel like a duel?

We need to change the rules

An be a little more kind

 

 

You donít know, maybe one day

Youíll find streets can all go two ways

Funny things happen sometimes that you canít control

You donít always get things right

And lady luck can sometimes bite

But you donít have to fight

Just have a bit more soul

 

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?

 

You donít know what happens when thereís no one else around

And you canít say what goes along when love just canít be found

In these dark and dirty streets nobody gives a damn

I canít take it any more so goodbye Uncle Sam

 

I know people follow oz why they do it? Just because

They donít see that itís all just a little bit fake

Well I got two cars you got four why are we all keeping score?

Everybody wants more from the money cake

 

You can take your slice of pie, but you canít give a reason why

Those without will never reach the top

Well I know some things have to be

But this is something I donít wanna see

Next time you or me we gotta call a stop

 

 

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?

Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to love?
