|The warm sun was shining so bright|
My heart felt so airy and light
I could only smile and sing
Such happiness this day bring
I was just having such a great day
Then Clerk rained on my parade
Today walking into the store
Like I have several times before
As I walked up to the counter
Right in my hand was a dollar
I carefully picked out my sweets
A fig bar was one of my treats
I was going to stop right there
The dollar I passed to the cashier
Then a Tootsie Roll I did see
A Mary Jane I took for me
"So what is the price of two fish?"
To eat a couple was my wish
Then he said to me "ten cents please"
I pass him the money with ease
I still had ten cents more in change
Buy one more and end the exchange
So now he was looking at me
How come he wanted more money
To me, he said "you did not pay"
Wow, I was in shock and dismay
So, I just could not believe it
I was thinking this is horse shit
He wanted me to give my ten
I started out with eleven
So, I calmly put it all back
Mad, I was thinking fuck you Jack
Angry here I sit in my car
Depressed I cannot travel far
People take advantage of me
Black and red is all I can see
I ask "when will I take a stand?"
So, when will respect I demand?
I really have to let this go
For the answer I will never know.
