Today, upon a bus I saw a girl with golden hair,And in my heart I wished that I was just as fairWhen suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle.She had one leg and wore a crutch, but as she passed, a smile.Oh Allah, Oh Allah, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 legs to walk upon and the world is mine.
I stopped to buy some candy; met a boy who had such charm.We talked, he seemed so happy, if I were late, it do no harm.And as I left, he said to me, 'Thank you, you've been so kind.It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see,' he said, 'I'm blind.'Oh Allah, Oh Allah, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 eyes to see the world and the world is mine
Later that day on my way, I saw a boy with eyes of blue.He watched the other children play; he did not know what to do.I stopped a moment, then I said, 'Why don't you join the others, dear?'He kept on looking straight ahead and then I knew he could not hear. Oh Allah, Oh Allah, forgive me when I whine. I have 2 ears to hear the world and world is mine.With legs to take me where I'd go.With eyes to see the sunset glow.With ears to hear what I'd knowOh the world is mine
