They call me the scum of the earth
They say I'm the scab of the nation
But deep inside I'm only human
Just an ordinary man
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
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

We know that he's only a man
He's got feelings and faults
Just like anyone else

So don't put me down because I've done well
For even wide boys, hoods and spivs
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
