Letra de ONE IN TEN de UB40.

( UB40 )

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
even though i`m always there
a statistic, a reminder
of a world that doesn`t care

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
will no-one spare a dime?
i`m the child that never learns to read
`cause no-one spared the time

I am the one in ten .... etc

I`m the murderer and the victim
the licence with the gun
i`m a sad and bruised old lady
in an ally 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

I am the one in ten .... etc

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
covering the earth
i`m another hungry baby
i`m an accident of birth.

I am the one in ten .... etc
