Lyrics

Today upon a bus I saw a girl with golden hair
And in my heart I wished that I was just as fair
When suddenly she rose to leave
I saw her hobble down the aisle
She had one leg and wore a crutch
But as she passed, a smile

Oh Allah, Oh Allah
Forgive me when I whine
I have two legs to walk upon
And the world is mine

I stopped to buy some candy
Met a boy who had such charm
We talked, he seemed so happy
If I were late, it'd do no harm
As I left, he said to me
'Thank you, you've been so kind'
It's nice to talk with folks like you
'You see,' he said, 'I'm blind'

Oh Allah, Oh Allah
Forgive me when I whine
I have two eyes to see the world
And the world is mine

Later that day on my way
I saw a boy with eyes of blue
He watched the other children play
He did not know what to do
I stopped to watch him, then I said
'Why don't you join the others, dear?'
He kept on looking straight ahead
And then I knew he could not hear

Oh Allah, Oh Allah
Forgive me when I whine
I have two ears to hear the world
And the world is mine

With legs to take me where I'd go
With eyes to see the sunset glow
With ears to hear what I'd know
Oh the world is mine

I stopped for a moment
Just look how much I have
Everywhere, in all our lives
These are His signs

Oh Allah, Oh Allah
Forgive me when I whine
I have two legs to walk upon
And the world is mine

Oh Allah, Oh Allah
Forgive me when I whine
I have two ears to hear the world
And the world is mine
