New York Rap
Author: Ben Laney


Lately I keep on falling back
'cause my brain is out of whack
a chemical imbalance has me on a rack
my train of thought has jumped the track
maybe it's just the brain-cells that I lack
could be too much sugar from the sack
or I need to eat a REALLY BIG MAC
or go and chill with my friend, Jack
who lives in Jersey not far from Hackensack
yeah, maybe I should just go pack
throw my clothes all up in a sack
make a whole new plan of attack
become a rapper with a rhyming knack

Take it to New York and not look back
Take it to New York fo'get this shack
Take it to New York make a big stack
Take it to New York and cut no slack
Take it to New York hit like a heart attack!
Take it to New York and not look back!

------- Author's Notes -------

Okay! I am ONLY KIDDING! Maybe I should not have eaten that WHOLE BAG of "M & Ms! Anyway, I will not be leaving for NEW YORK today.......I'm waiting till this week-end! I hope you enjoy my little excursion into RAP!

Terrie*, your smile......

Terrie*, Your smile makes this even more worth while! It is a good feeling to know that you think I'm QUAZY, and that you got some pleasure and entertainment out of this writing! So, ya think I could give them rap boys a run for their money? Ha! Ha! Haaaaaaa! Maybe if I knew what I was doin' I would be even more dangerous than I already am! I want to let you know that I appreciate your words more than you know. I enjoyed your suggestion of names for my "rap" persona, too! Thank you! ***Ben
