blind eyes lyrics – little river band

by john farnham, david hirschfelder and ray chapman
old lady in the street ain’t here no more,
got robbed last week at her own front door,
no one saw her fall and no one heard her cry,
everyone there just turned a blind eye.
don’t look left now don’t look right,
take another step back, don’t see no sight,
keep a straight face, lead a streetwise life,
if you were there could you turn a blind eye.
blind eyes are weak, blind eyes are cruel,
look out for number one, survival’s the rule,
look straight ahead on a one-way street,
let sleeping dogs lie, just turn a blind eye,
(don’t look left – don’t look right)
(let sleeping dongs lie – just turn a blind eye).
maybe one day it’ll happen to you,
you know lighning strikes without warning,
who’ll see you struggle and who’ll hear you cry,
when everybody there just turn a blind eye.
blind eyes are weak, blind eyes are cruel,
look out for number one, survival’s the rule,
look straight ahead on a one-way street,
let sleeping dogs lie, just turn a blind eye,
blind eyes are weak, blind eyes are cruel,
look out for number one, survival’s the rule,
look straight ahead on a one-way street,
let sleeping dogs lie, just turn a blind eye,
blind eyes are weak, blind eyes are cruel,
look out for number one, survival’s the rule,
look straight ahead on a one-way street,
let sleeping dogs lie, just turn a blind eye,
don’t turn a blind eye,
don’t turn a blind eye,
don’t turn a blind eye …
