STEVIE WONDER LIVING JUST ENOUGH FOR THE CITY LYRICS

A boy is born,
In hard-time Mississippi
Surrounded by,
Four walls that ain't so pretty.

His parents give
Him love and affection
To keep him strong,
Movin' in the right direction.
Livin' just enough,
Just enough for the city.

His father works
Some days for fourteen hours
And you can bet,
He barely makes a dollar.
His mother works,
To scrub the floors for many
And you best believe
She hardly gets a penny
Livin' just enough,
Just enough for the city.

His sister's black
But she is sure enough pretty,
He skirt is short,
But Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school,
She's got to get up early.
Her clothes are old
But never are they dirty.
Livin' just enough,
Just enough for the city.

Her brother's smart,
He's got more sense than many
But soon he won't have any.
To find a job
Is like a haystack needle
Because where he lives,
They don't use colored people.
Livin' just enough,
Just enough for the city.
