LYRICS for SONG 

What we’re going to tell you about won’t take LONG

We weren’t doing anything you could say was WRONG

It's all about being in the wrong kind of PLACE

It's all about having the wrong kind of FACE

It's all about being in the wrong kind of LINE

It's all about being in the wrong kind of TIME

‘cos we were 

called out

we were

turned out

we were

pushed out

we were

shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

nowhere to call home we were all alone

neither here nor there

we were NOWHERE

It's all about being on the wrong kind of SIDE

It's all about having nowhere to HIDE

It's all about NOT having enough to EAT

It's all about US having nowhere but the STREET

‘cos we were 

called out

we were

turned out

we were

pushed out

we were

shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out

nowhere to call home

we were all alone

neither here nor there

we were (called out, turned out, pushed out, shoved out) NOWHERE
