take a look around lyrics – temptations

feather in your cap if you catch a robber
dirt in your face if your scheme falls through
pay close attention to my story
you’ll find every word is true

junk man standing on the corner
selling death, no conscience has he
in the name of god, wont somebody stop him
stop him, think about the children
it’s a matter of life and death, you see

ain’t no time to stand back and point your finger
we’ve got to face reality, no, no, no, no, no
don’t turn your back on this problem, people
too much depends on you and me

desperate with no sense of values
just an evil mind lurking through the night
because of you, the streets ain’t safe no more for walking
’cause you’re feeling so up-tight

take a look around, are you afraid?
take a look around, don’t be afraid
take a look around, are you afraid?
take a look around, don’t be afraid
take a look around, are you afraid?
take a look around, don’t be afraid
