Another Day in Paradise

           by Phil Collins

She calls out to the man on the street

"Sir, can you help me?

It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,

Is there somewhere you can tell me?"


He walks on, doesn't look back

He pretends he can't hear her

Starts to whistle as he crosses the street

Seems embarrassed to be there


Oh think twice, it's another day for

You and me in paradise

Oh think twice, it's just another day for you,

You and me in paradise


She calls out to the man on the street

He can see she's been crying

She's got blisters on the soles of her feet

Can't walk but she's trying


Oh think twice...
Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do

Oh lord, there must be something you can say


You can tell from the lines on her face

You can see that she's been there

Probably been moved on from every place

'Cos she didn't fit in there


Oh think twice...








もう一回考えてごらん


何不自由ない楽園の様なこの世の一日なのに。。。

Background Jesus on helping the poor and needy:

Jesus said:



I was hungry and you gave me food

I was thirsty and you gave me drink


I was a stranger and you welcomed me

I was naked and you clothed me

I was sick and you visited me

I was in prison and you came to me.

And they said: “Lord, when did we do these things?



Jesus said:

Truly, I say to you, as you did it to the least of my brothers, you did it to me.

(the least = the poorest, weakest, most helpless people (for example, homeless people)
