Poor Kids in Bangladesh

Poor Kids in Bangladesh

 

Poor kids in Bangladesh;

sweat, tears, heat, fears.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

They work all day to make your clothes.

It’s their obligation, not something they chose.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

Their family always comes first,

working through the hunger and thirst.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

It’s a hard-knock life for them,

lining and stitching your hem.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

If they weren’t able to work,

they’d just have to steal and lurk.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

Working is their responsibility,

I know that’s different for you and me.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

They have to work to survive,

and help keep their family alive.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

While we are leaving for schools,

they are already spinning the spools.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

Let them work. They need the job,

or else they’ll be fired and form a mob.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.

 

The sweatshops may be best.

Let them work, and you go rest.

Poor kids in Bangladesh.
