Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Hunger is a fire burning inside you.
Hunger is like a fire,
burning inside of you.
With a strong, strong desire
to eat, to eat, to eat!

We are all hungry!
Hungry for food,
Beans, bread, and coffee.
But hunger is more,
than the desire for food.

Some are hungry for love!
The taste of someone's lips.
The touch of their skin.
Hungry for their attention.
Hungry for their affection.

Some are hungry for fame!
The sounds of people applauding.
The sounds of people cheering.
Hungry for their support.
Hungry for their love.

Others are hungry for wealth!
The mansions and the cars.
The parties with stars.
Hungry for gold.
Hungry for silver.

But hunger is no friend,
it can turn us into animals.
And the feeling will never end.
It is a feeling that you must feed.
