      Is there? I cheated on this one. I thought it up, thought it was funny and figured someone else must have said it before, but I'm not finding a quote. So evidently I was the originator, unless you can find another.

  • UB40 One In Ten I am a one in ten, a number on a list, I am a one in ten, even though i don't exist. Nobody knows me, but im always there, A statistic, a reminder of a world that doesn't care. My arms enfold the dole queue. Malnutrition dulls my hair, My eyes are black and lifeless, With an underprivileged stare, I'm the beggar on the corner, Will no-one spare a dime, I'm the child that never learns to read, Because no one spared the time, I am a one in ten a number on a list, I am a one in ten even though i don't exist. Nobody knows me, but im always there, A statistic a reminder of a world that doesn't care. I'm the murderer and the victim, The licence with the gun, I'm a sad and bruised old lady, In an ally in a slum, I'm a middle aged businessman, With chronic heart disease, I'm another teenage suicide, In a street that has no trees, I am a one in ten a number on a list, I am a one in ten even though i don't exist. Nobody knows me, but im always there, A statistic a reminder of a world that doesn't care. I'm a starving third world mother, A refugee without a home, I'm a house wife hooked on Valium, I'm a Pensioner alone, I'm a cancer ridden spectre, Covering the earth, I'm another hungry baby, I'm an accident of birth, I am a one in ten a number on a list, "I am a one in ten even though i don't exist. Nobody knows me, but im always there, A statistic a reminder of a world that doesn't care." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usYgf8cVfvU
