The Lyrics

In my opinion, this is one of the nicest songs I've ever written lyrics for. It's not so much a parody; it's actually like a whole new song with borrowed tune. Anyways, enjoy it. I really do.
A man walked all around the town; his future was unknown.
He had no money and no food, or a place to call his home.
His clothes were old and battered, and walking made him sore.
But we welcomed him with open arms when he knocked on our door.

(Chorus)
Come on in, you are welcome, take those old shoes off your feet.
Just sit down, rest your body, while we get you food to eat.
Come on in, you are welcome, take those old shoes off your feet.
Rest your tired body, here's a bed where you can sleep.

There are many people like this man who live without a home.
They spend their lives out in the world, battered and alone.
They know not where they'll stay tonight, or where they'll get a meal.
We offer them a place to stay, a place where they can heal.

(Chorus)

If you are down in life, my friend, I'll tell you what to do.
Just stop on by, God bless you child, we extend our arms to you.
Come sit here by the fire, and rest your weary soul.
We'll get you some new clothes to wear, and make sure you are full.

(Chorus)
Thanks for viewing.
