Mr Busker
Author: Ben Franklin


I play my guitar
day in day out,
sing softly
sometimes shout,

The police chuck me out of the station
at least 5 times a day,
but I manage to sneek back in and put my
case in front of me and begin to

I hardly get a penny from the rush-hour
looking at me as if I was mad,
is playing you a song so evil?

I play songs for the homeless....

"here Bob,guess this song and I will give you a surprise..

"looking back on when I was a little nappie headed boy..."

Bob:"thats a stevie wonder number!!"
It sure is,
now take this sandwich with cheese and cucumber.

I maybe a busker
but I've got a kind heart,
you passing people wouldnt know where to
