But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table  Where you live should not decide Whether you live or whether you die Three to a bed Sister Ann, she said Dignity passes by

And you speak of signs and wonders But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table, hey
