Slum Kids Submit Correct Lyrics

We're just slum kids, and we know it
And we never stood a chance
We were dragged up from the gutter
From the wrong side of the tracks

So how dare you criticize?
When you don't know what it's like
To be dragged up from the gutter
From the wrong side of the tracks

Why do rich kids get all the breaks
While the poor slum kids have to work, sweat, struggle and slave?
Why, Lord, there's so much injustice in this world?
Slum kids never stand a chance

Look at all the slum kids all around you
Oh, we never stood a chance
We were dragged up from the gutter
From the wrong side of the tracks

Why do rich kids get all the breaks
While the poor slum kids have to work, sweat, struggle and slave?
Why, Lord, there's so much injustice in this world?
Slum kids never stand a chance

Look at all the slum kids all around you
Oh, we never stood a chance
We were dragged up from the gutter, yeah
From the wrong side of the tracks

So how dare you criticize?
When you don't know what it's like
To be dragged up from the gutter
From the wrong side of the tracks
