Album: But Seriously
This song discusses the stigmatized attitudes that many people have when they meet people who are living in poverty.
She calls out to the man on the street
'Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?'
He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there
Key Words: Phil Collins, Another Day in Paradise, Classism
