Today, upon a bus,
I saw a girl with golden hair.
And wished I was as fair.
When suddently she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch.
But as she passed, she smiled.
Oh GOD, FORGIVE ME when i whine. When i whine.
I have two legs the world is mine.
I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him, he seemd so glad.
If i were late, it'd do no harm,
"i thank you, you've been so kind.
You see," he said, "I'm blind"
Oh GOD, FORGIVE ME when i whine. When I whine
I have two eyes the world is mine.
I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play.
He did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
"Why don't you join the others, dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
And then I knew. He couldn't hear.
Oh GOD, FORGIVE ME when i whine. When i whine
I have two ears the world is mine.
With feet to take me where I'd go
With eyes to see the sunset's glow.
With ears to hear what I'd know.
Oh GOD, FORGIVE ME when I whine. When I whine
I have been blessed indeed, the world is mine
