    SUBCITY - BY TRACY CHAPMAN
    People say it doesn't exist
    'Cause no one would like to admit
    That there is a city underground
    Where people live everyday
    Off the waste and decay
    Off the discards of their fellow man ​

    Here in subcity life is hard
    We can't recieve any government relief
    I'd like to give Mr. President my honest regards
    For disregarding me ​

    They say there's too much crime in these city streets
    My sentiments exactly
    Government and big buisness hold the purse strings
    When I worked I worked in the factory
    I'm at the mercy of the world
    I guess I'm lucky to be alive ​

    They say we've fallen through the cracks
    They say the system works
    But we won't let it
    Help
    I guess they never stop to think
    We might not just want handouts
    But a way to make an honest living
    Living this ain't living ​

    What did I do to deserve this
    Had my trust in god
    Worked everyday of my life
    Thought I had some guarantees
    That's what I thought
    At least that's what I thought ​

    Last night I had another restless sleep
    Wondering what tomorrow might bring
    Last night I dreamed
    A cold blue light was shining down on me
    I screamed myself awake
    Thought I must be dying
    Thought I must be dying ​

    Maisha bora kwa kila mtanzania! Hao watoto wamekaa kwenye jiko la mkaa wanabugia moshi mnene kama hawana akili nzuri.

    Ni jiko la kuni lenye kutoa joto la kuupenda utanzania kwa watoto wanaolizunguka. Kazi kubwa ipo kama na elimu nayo itafanana na jiko wanalolizunguka maana hapo hawatakuwa na pakutokea.
