Hes like the gutter people babe
No pride his face displays
Has he slept for hours or has he lain there many days?
Still theres a smile on his face
Through all the dirt and grime
At least a credit due the man
He dont stoop down to crime.

Yeah, people pass him on the street
They hide their face in shame
Hes treated poorly with disgrace
Man without a name
Just another one of lifes many heroes
Of a bourbon society
Well its a case of livin hard-reality

Chorus:
Beggar man you got to stand up real tall
Life is no where at all
Beggar man you got to live for today
Dont take your heart and throw it away.
Beggin lifes a hassle baby
People cant you see
Daddy was a real proud man
Bad luck brought him to his knees
Might be standin there
Yea beggin you for a buck
Why doncha just give it to him
It might just change his luck.

Chorus:
Beggar man you got to stand up real tall
Life is no where at all
Beggar man you got to live for today
Dont take your heart and throw it away.
