lyrics

I know why the caged bird screams
And why the sky’s so grey
The purple mountains majesty
Are not so purple today
And the envy of your brother’s wife
Is smelt from far away
She jumped in bed and bumped her head
And here we are today

And the houses of the holy
Are tarnished with our tears
And the women all around me
Are wiping off their years
And the old are grey and lonely
And the young are wide awake
No sleeping in the city
No rest for us today
