Little Girl
From: Hootie & the Blowfish EP (1991)

Wake up little girl
Where is your mom?
Where is your home little girl?
Where are you from?
Why are your clothes so bad?
Why aren't you in school?
Where is your dad little girl?
Say he left before you were two
The world should look in your eyes
And see that it's you
Fightin' and hurtin'
And then sayin' there's nothing they can do
Oh wipe your eyes little girl
No don't you cry
The government said they'd help
But we know that they lie
Friends of mine say things never change
Say they never have
This time things have gotta change
Cause your life can't stay that bad
You're a derelict, they say as they raise their fist
I wish they would realize you didn't ask to be
Ask to be born like this
Yeah this country's so great
We got money to pay for the president's aides 
Plain shoes
If you look at your feet
You see those you could use
The world should look in your eyes
And see that it's you
Fightin' and hurtin'
And then sayin' there's nothing they can do
Homeless, homeless
