    Lyrics

    Thirty thousand men on the Bowery
    Thirty thousand men on the street
    Can't help but roam when you ain't got no home
    Beggin' handouts for something to eat
    Beggin' handouts for something to eat

    Thirty thousand men on the sidewalk
    Thirty thousand men in the town
    Nowhere to go when the wind starts to blow
    Lookin' 'round for some place to lay down
    Lookin' 'round for some place to lay down

    Thirty thousand men tired and dirty
    Thirty thousand men to be fed
    Bussed out to Queens for a chance to get clean
    And a shot at some sleep in a bed
    And a shot at some sleep in a bed

    Thirty thousand men in the armories
    Thirty thousand men down the block
    Neighbors all shout "We don't want 'em about."
    "Bus 'em back in the morning and stop."
    "Bus 'em back in the morning and stop."

    Thirty thousand men of depression
    Thirty thousand men 'neath a cloud
    Jobs getting scarce, and they're cutting welfares
    And we might find ourselves in the crowd
    And we might find ourselves in the crowd

    Thirty thousand men in the city
    Thirty thousand men killin' time
    Helpless and cold, some are young, some are old
    Shabby clothes and some bottles of wine
    Shabby clothes and some bottles of wine
    This song was submitted on October 18th, 2016.
