"Lonely Man" as written by and Kevin Coyne....
He's a poor old lonely man
In a lonely little shack
He didn't have much to eat
No, he didn't have much on his back
But he worked and sweat almost everyday
Working til the next pay day
When we can come he's just as poor
And after that he will start once more

But his lonely days
Lord, his lonely ways
and all his lonely nights
will soon be bright

His lonely days, I said
his lonely ways and all of his
lonely nights.. ah will soon be right

Now if you see this lonely man
Try and give him a helping hand
Cause someday he will understand
When he was down you helped him out

Please don't pass and criticize
It's time we all should realize
Whether he's black or he is white
Each man has an equal right

Cause his lonely days,
lord his lonely ways, hear me,
and all his lonely nights
will soon be bright

That's how life should be
Oooh Yes Sir-e
I know you'll all agree
