ALMS FOR THE BEGGAR MAN (Written by Dennis DeYoung) Styx (Lead Vocals by Dennis DeYoung) Clopin and Friends Alms for the beggar man Please help the indigent of Paris Madame I need a bit of sympathy Alms for the beggar man Who's there, don't be afraid of touching me Blindness is not exactly leprosy Alms for the beggar man Kind sir can you spare a franc for some food I'll take any gift you give but shoes Alms for the beggar man Hey look, these were hiding inside my clothes At last I've got some hands to pick my nose My God it's a miracle My eyes have suddenly begun to see Turns out it was just this handkerchief Mais oui, call the doctors and physicians To see My legs in excellent reconditioned We three, suddenly have found religion Look in my eyes At my arms And my legs And you'll see a true epiphany We are the kings of lies disguise and deception When we beg or steal it's devoid of detection Real work is simply out of the question There's no occupation For gypsies crooks and thieves So come on boys let's count up all the donations Split the take and have a little libation Hard work deserves a little vacation A celebration, so join us in this dance Alms for the beggar men Reach out for someone who truly needs We are the beggar men We'll take anything you have to give Voila we have to live (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - February 2003)
