On one cold frosty morning,
the ground was covered with snow.
On one cold frosty morning,
the ground was covered with snow.
Well, I met a million people,
who didn't have no place to go.

Well some have children,
some just have their suitcase and clothes.
Well some have children,
Yes, some have their suitcase and clothes.
You know those people was steady walkin',
but they couldn't find no place to go.

But the time's going to be better,
Well, and that I really do know.
Well the time's goin' be better,
and that I really do know.
Because it looks so sad and lonesome,
People's can't find nowhere to go.

People, children were shivering,
standing around my front door.
People, children were shivering,
standing around my front door.
Well, they were hungry and almost naked,
and couldn't find no place to go.
