MOVING PICTURES’ “What About Me” (1982)

In addition to the inspirational quotes, the beautiful images, my own personal and business blogs, the recommended reading list, and information on my consulting business, I would like to share some of the videos and writings of various thought leaders, musicians and authors.

MOVING PICTURES’ “What About Me” (1982)

This thought provoking video is definitely dated (c. 1982) and not one I would recommend watching, but the song, lyrics and voice of Alex Smith are incredible. Please listen and read the lyrics below, even if my link redirects you to YouTube.

LYRICS

Well there’s a little boy waitin’ at the counter of a corner shop
He’s been waitin’ down there, waitin’ half the day
They never ever see him from the top
He gets pushed around, knocked to the ground
He gets to his feet and he says;
“What about me, it isn’t fair
I don’t have enough, now I want my share
Can’t you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more than you give…”

Well there’s a pretty girl servin’ at the counter of a corner shop
She’s been waitin’ back there, waitin’ for her dream
But dreams walk in and out, they never stop
Well she’s not too proud to cry out loud
She runs to the street and she screams;
“What about me, it isn’t fair
I don’t have enough, now I want my share
Can’t you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more than you give…” (More than you give)

Take a step back and see the little people
They might be young but they’re the ones that make the big people big
So listen, as they whisper;
“What about me? …”

Now I’m standin’ on the corner of a world gone home
Nobody’s changed, nobody’s been saved
And I am feelin’ cold and alone
I guess I’m lucky, I smile a lot
But sometimes I wish for more than I’ve got…
“What about me, it isn’t fair
I don’t have enough, now I want my share
Can’t you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more – What about me?!
It isn’t fair!
I don’t have enough, now I want my share!
Can’t you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more,
You just take more,
You just take more than you give…

What about me?
What about me?
What about me?
