Small child messing down, messing down
In the streets of Bombay;
Cities like this have no shame, no shame:
Indeed, why should they?

Out in the middle distance, several tragedies are playing.
I'm beside myself.
Big sister, can you hear him, can you hear him?
I'm beside myself.

Big sister, can you see him cry, see him cry?
I'm beside myself.

I saw you taking money in the shadows -
In the shadows by the station there.
