I guess I must be a thing

May 24, 2015

People holler when I dance
Women faint when I sing
I guess I must be a thing

I tried to run for mayor
I got elected King
I guess I must be a thing

Ladies send me flowers
And cover me with bling
I guess I must be a thing

The world is a yoyo
At the end of my string
I guess I must be a thing

People say my presence
Is like eternal spring
I guess I must be a thing

As soon as I enter
The party starts to swing
I guess I must be a thing

Two billion followers
Underneath my wing
I guess I must be a thing

Whole Lotta Hungry

May 21, 2015

aaaaaaaaaaahungry

Fry me some baloney
Pile my plate with peas
Make me macaroni
With some gooey gooey cheese

Whip me up an omelet
Broil me some chops
Rustle up some grits
I’m gonna eat until I pop

I worked all day long
And I didn’t get a break
Got a whole lotta hungry
Keeping me awake

Mash me some taters
Bake me up some beans
I could eat a gator
And a mess of collard greens

Sauté me some catfish
Steep me up some stew
I’ll devour every dish
From here to Timbuktu

I worked all day long
And I didn’t get a break
Got a whole lotta hungry
Keeping me awake

Money Seeks Money

May 7, 2015

Money don’t live
And Money don’t die
Money don’t love
And Money don’t cry

Money and power
Money and fame
Money trumps Hearts
Money wins game

Money seeks money
Money gotta grow
Money burns hot
From down below

God hates money
I know it’s true
Look at the people
He gives it to

The Bank of Resentment

May 2, 2015

I walked barefoot to Alaska
Hoping I could please you
And with every single step
Resentment grew and grew

Gave up everything in life
Just to make you happy
So it’s totally your fault
That I feel so crappy

I’m a walking sacrifice
I carry my own cross
There’s masochistic gain
In every single loss

Existing just for others
Is how I seek contentment
I keep a full account
At the bank of resentment
