They go to bed hungry more often than not,
Their parents make do with whatever they've got.
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be a treat,
For hungry children roaming the street,
Digging in garbage cans, looking for food,
Feeling alone and in a depressed mood.
Hungry at night, they can't get a good rest.
The next day at school, they can't do their best.

There's a problem here in the U.S.A.
And in Third World countries, far away.
We must support relief efforts and community food banks.
Helping starving children will be enough thanks.
We must band together, one and all
To end world hunger, wherever it calls!
