[Verse 1]
In the land of milk and honey
It's hard to understand
Them that hold the power
In the palm of their hand
And have no comprehension
Of what it means to be
Standing at the mercy
Of begging and defeat
So all you unworthy sinners
Without a pin to your name
Looking up at someone new
Writes the rules to the game
But we stand with no one among us
And watch without a tear
What's becoming of our brothers
Every time, every time that we hear

[Chorus]
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough on the streets

[Verse 2]
In the land of milk and honey
We all riding high
We got our little fortune
We got our piece of the pie
While my brothers got a worry
Bout where his head's gonna lie
While this begs the question
How long before you and I say

[Chorus]
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough out here on the streets
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough out here on the streets

Brother, I'm Hungry Lyrics

Snarky Puppy – Brother, I'm Hungry Lyrics

[Verse 1]
In the land of milk and honey
It's hard to understand
Them that hold the power
In the palm of their hand
And have no comprehension
Of what it means to be
Standing at the mercy
Of begging and defeat
So all you unworthy sinners
Without a pin to your name
Looking up at someone new
Writes the rules to the game
But we stand with no one among us
And watch without a tear
What's becoming of our brothers
Every time, every time that we hear

[Chorus]
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough on the streets

[Verse 2]
In the land of milk and honey
We all riding high
We got our little fortune
We got our piece of the pie
While my brothers got a worry
Bout where his head's gonna lie
While this begs the question
How long before you and I say

[Chorus]
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough out here on the streets
Brother I'm hungry
I can't afford to eat
Brother it's cold outside
Living rough out here on the streets
