Saint Or Sinner?

Saint Or Sinner?

Saint Or Sinner?

Saint
——-

I’m a Saint I am!
Always there to lend a hand.
I’m a Saint I am.

A homeless person in the street,
holds a sign beside his feet.
Saying “Please give me food to eat”

I walk by

I’m a Saint I am!
Always there to lend a hand.
I’m a Saint I am.

I see a pensioner in their purse,
to pay for their shopping is a must.
They put things back they can’t meet the cost.

I stand and watch

I’m a Saint I am!
Always there to lend a hand.
I’m a Saint I am.

I see a young girl cross the road,
carrying bags……a heavy load.
Her shoulder’s must be strong and broad.

I just walk on

I’m a Saint I am!
Always there to lend a hand.
I’m a Saint I am.

Sinner
———

I have flaws not one or two.
I have flaws I have quiet a few.
I have flaws what am I to do?

A homeless person in the street,
holds a sign beside his feet.
Saying “Please give me food to eat”

I go to the shop by him some cake,
shake his hand
and say “Here you go mate”

I have flaws not one or two.
I have flaws I have quiet a few.
I have flaws what am I to do?

I see a pensioner in their purse,
to pay for their shopping is a must.
They put things back they can’t meet the cost.

I go and ask how much she’s short.
I open my purse to meet the cost.
She will be putting nothing back today.
She will eat this week although she could not pay.

I have flaws not one or two.
I have flaws I have quiet a few.
I have flaws what am I to do?

I see a young girl cross the road,
carrying bags……a heavy load.
Her shoulder’s must be strong and broad.

I go and ask can I lend a hand
She says “thank you sir that would be grand”
I help her get to her car.
It really wasn’t very far

I have flaws not one or two.
I have flaws I have quiet a few.
I have flaws what am I to do?

We all have flaws.
No-ones a Saint,
We all have sinned
Our souls we taint.
