a stranger on earth lyrics – marianne faithfull

some fools don’t know what’s right from wrong
but somehow those folks belong
me, i try for all i’m worth
but i still remain a stranger on this earth

some people gloom, other folk cry
me, i have to struggle to keep alive
ever since the day of my birth
i’ve been a stranger, stranger on this earth

i try to be what all folks should
forgetting the bad and doing good
but no matter how i try
my troubles always multiply

now, i’ve been doing the best i can
ever since life began
some day when i prove my worth
i won’t be a stranger on earth

now, i’ve been living the best i can
ever since my life began
the day’s gonna come when i prove my worth
and i won’t be no stranger

no, i won’t be a stranger
on this earth
