Scum of the Earth
Sung by flash, spivs and floosies. Flash: they call me the scum of the earth. They say I'm the scab of the nation. But deep inside I'm only human. Just an ordinary man. With ordinary plans. They say I'm crooked and bent, They call me a rogue and a villain, But if they could see deep inside me They'd see a heart that once was pure Before it touched the evils of this world, For if I cut myself I bleed And if I catch a cold I sneeze. Have I not eyes to help me see? Have I not lungs to help me breathe? Have I not hands, organs, senses And affections just like you? Stop the music. Well ain't I human Like everybody else? Before you condemn me my friends, I suggest that you look deep inside you For good and evil Exist in all of us, And no man is a saint And each creates his heaven and his hell. [Chorus:] we know that he's only a man. He's got feelings and faults Just like everyone else. [Flash:] so don't put me down because I've done well, For even wide boys, hoods and spivs Have got the right to live. [Chorus:] we know we're the scum of the earth, We know we're the scab of the nation, But we're your enemies and your brothers And no man is a saint And deep down we're all the same as one another.
