The Lyrics

I don't really expect to get points for humor but I wanted to submit this anyway.
I'm all out of hope
One more sleepless night could bring a fall
When I have no home
Can't call me on the phone
Now I'm all alone
Not easy to believe
People like to tease
I'm trying not to freeze

CHORUS:
(Someone help them please)
Guys without a place
(Someone help them please)
Guys without a space
Got to go someplace
The guys without a place

I spend so much time
Trying to get a dime
To keep myself alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
No knowing what to do

CHORUS

When you see a person you might make a dip
Into your pocket, a coin to them you flip
You get in your car and go to Las Vegas oh, sit by the pool
Hanging out with a cardboard sign
'Fraid they'll spend your money on cigarettes and wine
Drinking it down, oh
You don't really know how this came to be
So please never think "it can't happen to me"
Please think of them out there and
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is put my hope in hope
So alive and new
All I can do it try
I hope you realize

CHORUS

Need to recall the original song better before I can vote, Jan - but good job!

I have heard the original, Jan. And unfortunately, there's too much similarity to the original. I did like the chorus, though.
