Song of the Times

The cripple played a banjo
The blind man played a flute
People rushing past stopped and said
“Look, aren’t they cute?”
“Throw them a nickel”
“Throw them a dime”
“Don’t pause too long”
“We haven’t got the time”

The cripple whistled
The blind man sang
People rushed by
Church bells rang
“Love your neighbor”
“But not too much”
“The blind man’s cane”
“The cripple’s crutch”
