A Little Help From Heaven

Lawrence Watson

 

Intro-Spoken

The politics of poverty and the culture of hate

Has led to the loss of blue collar jobs and the

Suburbanization excluding the black urban poor

who remain isolated in the ghettos in churches on sunday morning, filled to capacity.

 

Verse 1

Is this what we call life?

Young children in the night.

Their fragile bodies bleed,

they turn a trick to eat.

They know that something’s wrong,

but they must be strong.

Their daddy has no job

and momma, she’s been long gone.

 

Chorus

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.

 

Verse 2

You see them coast-to-coast,

victims of the American hoax.

You see fathers they have no jobs.

And on a pa day, you know a Motha’s robbed .

And Her husband stressed out and overcome.

He shoots that poor woman with his gun.

Now there’s one more Black man in jail.

and the children work the streets for bail.

 

Chorus

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.

 

We need  little help

We need a little help

We need a

Heavenly father we need help

 

Bridge

Listen all my children, from a different world

This is a true story of a Father son and little girl.

Wake up sons and daughters it’s easy to see.

The erosion of the Black family.

Chorus

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.

We could use a little help from heaven.

We could use a little help.

We can't fight this battle by ourselves.

We need some shelter from this hell.
