Yellow sun show out your face, 
Injustice is in this human race 
Some living big while others living small 
And they don't hear when the children call 
Whoy whoy whoy whoy even if they're crying 
Whoy whoy whoy whoy 
The homeless need some shelter 

He gave the sun to shine for all of mankind 
He gave the sun to shine for all, 
Everyone of mankind 
He gave the sun to shine 
For all those living in creation 
He gave the sun to shine for all 

Mister plenty showing nothing, 
No love and kindness 
For his fellow brethren, 
He's got everything 
And they've got nothing 
And he knows they're in need 
Of something now, 
They want some food for their table, 
Their backs need some clothing 
I said you must be blind, 
Can't you see mankind 
When we read and discover ourselves 
The injustice of this here government 
The yellow sun don't hide away your face 
Injustice in this human race 
Some living big while others living small 
And they don't hear when the children call 
If they bawl, 
If they cry now they need some food 
For their children now 

He gave the sun to shine for all mankind 
He gave the sun to shine for all
