(((being poor)))

1, 2, 3, 4, the holy grail is to slowly scale. My voice is as choice as Vincent Price's. for emcees convinced they’re nicest, it's instant crisis. Anything embarrassing or prestigious it'll pass, as we hold fast to the last vestiges of the middle class. Before you can save THE world you have to save YOUR world. I'm talking man to man as we're walking hand in hand. Marry black, white, or candy-striped, but never a poor girl. If I knew then what I know now, I'd snowplow slow down a slope and show how. If I knew now what I knew then, I'd tie up loose ends and have stayed a true friend. Please play this jam with ample force, loud. I wrote it to make my sons and the sample source proud. Camille Yarbrough, All Hid. If you’re gonna set the bar low, you better limbo or else be a small kid. 1, 2, 3, 4, run through detour.

What to the slave is the 4th of July? What to a brave is the worth of an island? And what to a bird is fireworks in the sky? Iron Pot Cooker, 1975. Vanguard.
