Don’t Judge

I wasn't always like this, I had a home and a wife
But no one can predict when they're gonna get beat down by life

I had my own car and went to work everyday
Paid all my bills and even put a little something away

Woke up one day and it all changed in a flash
No job, no car, and I lost all my cash

I soon lost my home and my wife turned ill
Her health faded quickly, I do miss her still

I was your teacher, your cashier, your delivery man
Your mechanic, your roofer, your librarian

So, the next time you see me, don't look so strange
It could be you sitting here asking "Do you have any change?"
