Date: March 24, 2005
From: José Duarte

Am					Dm
They call me the scum of the earth.
     G 				 Am 
They say I'm the scab of the nation. 
         Dm			  Am
But deep inside I'm only human. 
F                G#dim
Just an ordinary man.
F              G#dim   
With ordinary plans. 

They say I'm crooked and bent, 
They call me a rogue and a villain, 
But if they could see deep inside me 
They'd see a heart that once was pure 
Before it touched the evils of this world, 

For if I cut myself I bleed 
And if I catch a cold I sneeze. 
Have I not eyes to help me see? 
Have I not lungs to help me breathe? 
Have I not hands, organs, senses 
And affections just like you? 
Stop the music. 
                         E    F    E
Well ain't I human  like everybody else? 

Before you condemn me my friends, 
I suggest that you look deep inside you 
For good and evil 
Exist in all of us, 
And no man is a saint 
And each creates his heaven and his hell. 
   F				 Am
We know that he's only a man. 
He's got feelings and faults 
Just like everyone else. 

   Dm                        C         A                 
So don't put me down because I've done well, 
F		                G#dim
For even wide boys, hoods and spivs 
F                   G#dim
Have got the right to live. 

We know we're the scum of the earth, 
We know we're the scab of the nation, 
But we're your enemies and your brothers 
And no man is a saint 
And deep down we're all the same as one another
