Fences

You just another nigger.

You are a woman-less man.

Fences are made to keep people in and out.

I can’t taste nothing.

A watched pot never boils.

Stick with Uncle Sam and retire early.

You gotta take the crookeds with the straights.

It helps me get out of bed in the morning.

One time in my life I got to say no.

Your daddy wanted you to be everything he was and at the same time he wanted you to be everything he wasn’t.

I didn’t know to keep up his strength I had to give up mine.

That’s the way that go.
