I Got a Phone Call

Author:

I got a phone call
it was a mistake
but it was a call
I decided to take.

Tried to sell me
weed care for my lawn
and cause I was bored
I just let him go on.

He talked a lot
and didn't let me speak
and then when I objected
he rebutted me.

"I don't need your service,
I don't even have a lawn..."
But he just kept talking and
I let him go on.

We all got something to sell
what that is - it's hard to tell
what we need - I don't know
but we keep searching...
ain't it so?

I met a beggar
in the street
he needed a handout
to make ends meet.

I guess I thought
he didn't look drunk
like that's my business
judging just makes me a punk.

He talked a lot
and didn't let me speak
and then when I objected
he rebutted me.

"I'd like to help you,
and let you get some food..."
But damn I'm so busy
(and not in the mood).

We all got something to give
maybe we should just let others live
avoiding judgements of what's right
reach into our hearts and pockets...
so we can sleep at night.
