There's A Man Sweeping The Street

There's a man sweeping the street ,
Next to the one selling corn.
Across the street another is selling ice cream
Right in front of the one making shoes.
Billy by the corner is cutting people's hair ...
A hundred metres far there's Sam the bus conductor,
Up in the skyscraper someone is shooting a music
video .
Well in the thirteenth floor Jack is CEO,
And David his PA is always late.
Right downstairs three men are being fired...

One of them has to return to the car wash ,
One of them has to make a quick plan on how to pay
rent,
And one of them has no problem with it:
He's probably gonna return to his father 's company .

And the first one kept sweeping the street,
And the one next to him kept selling corn.
It was rainy but the shoemaker kept doing his job:
What was he to do, he had a family to feed.
