Now You know had to ask
“Aye pops where get that 20 ! “ as I walked across the street.
Pops laughed it off went into his pockets
And showed me hella 20s.
Then replied,” I got hella money sonny “.
That didn’t answer my question,
But I was fascinated with his paper.
The Old pimp ask me, “ where my guitar you usually have all day & all night “ ?
Once again honored, but I’m no fool.
I told him, “ I usually do, and every time I don’t, something goes crude”.
I ask em, “ Do you believe in magic “?
“ Cus old man I had 20 and disappeared from my pockets, but now it’s in your hand“
He laughed again, “ Oh thats a simple magic trick, it’s easy I can show you how to do it” I wasn’t interested in stealing but I kept on listening,
“I been around for 40 years I seen it all and in the dark city that is “
“It’s all about the third eye & will, with believing, and anything can happen.
I seen fire come out of niggas fingers”
Im in disbelief,there ain’t no third eye, & fire with no lighter,
I woulda called him a liar but I seen my 20.
I didn’t have time for the games I was hungry and i needed the rest of my money.
He laugh cause I didn’t believe his story,
He shrugged off and said,”play me some blues and I’ll give you a 20”
“ But I don’t have my guitar”, I said.
And he said, “well sing from your heart “.
And this is how my story starts.
