My Gawd Muggletonian,

I don't know what you can find rousing about being homeless. Ramblin' Boy by Tom Paxton is about the most rousing that I can think of and it's still a pretty sad song.

Make a good song challenge though.

I'm happy to be sleeping where its bloody freezing cold
my socks are getting smelly and I'm dirty and I'm old...

The second verse of While London Sleeps is not too bad, but the last verse gets too close to the miserable truth of poverty.
