One in ten Lyrics - UB40

Review The Song (0)



(Chorus)
I am the one in ten
A number on a list
I am the one in ten
Even though I don`t exist
Nobody Knows me
But I`m always there
A statistical reminder
Of a world that doesn`t care

Saxophone Solo

My arms enfold the dole queue
Malnutrition dulls my hair
My eyes are black and lifeless
With an underprivileged stare
I`m the beggar on the corner
sponsored links
Will no-one spare a dime?
I`m the child that never learned to read
`Cause no-one spared the time


(Chorus)

I am the one in ten .... etc

Saxophone Solo

I`m the murderer and the victim
And I'm licenced with the gun
I`m a sad and bruised old lady
In an alley in a slum
I`m a middle aged businessman
With chronic heart disease
I`m another teenaged suicide
In a street that has no trees


(Chorus)

I am the one in ten .... etc

Saxophone Solo

I`m a starving third world mother
A refugee without a home
I`m a house wife hooked on Valium
I`m a Pensioner alone
I`m a cancer ridden spectre
That's covering the earth
I`m another hungry baby
I`m an accident of birth.


(Chorus)

I am the one in ten .... etc

Saxophone Solo

I am the one in ten .... etc

Guitar Solo
