'Sleeping in Doorways' - Anne Watson

Sleeping in doorways and public grounds
Second homes cost £2 million pounds

Chorus: Oxford town Oxford town
I'll tell you what it's like in Oxford town

A quarter of our children with not enough to eat
Cafes and restaurants in every street

Ch: Oxford town ...

Moving around due to rent arrears
Inherited homes for a hundred years



Ch: Oxford town...

Hungry and needing food bank food
Throwing out food that is not thought good

Ch: Oxford town...

Taxed on every extra space
Extending assets in the property race

Ch: Oxford town...

Need three jobs just to manage now
Need a career or a good cash cow

Oxford town Oxford town ...
