Living For The City

(stevie wonder)

Producers for bonnie: david mackay, ronnie scott, steve wolfe



A boy is born in hardtime mississippi

Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty

His parents give him love and affection

To keep him strong, movin' in the right direction

Living just enough, just enough for the city, yeah



His father works some days for fourteen hours

And you can bet he barely makes a dollar

His mother goes to scrub the floors for many

And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny

Living just enough, just enough for the city



His sister's black, but she is sho 'nuff pretty

Her skirt is short, but lord her legs are sturdy

To walk to school, she's got to get up early

Her clothes are old, but never are they dirty

Living just enough, just enough for the city



Her brother's smart, he's got more sense than many

His patience's long, but soon he won't have any

To find a job is like a haystack needle, 'cause

Where he lives, they don't use coloured people

Living just enough, just enough for the city

Living just enough for the city
