don't tell me
i've learnt so little
from this society
from this here ghetto
it taught me how to scrutinize
insurance policies for the wise

besides my mate
i'll always keep
my boss, my father
old love, niece
handful of friends
and banker too
just in case i can't trust you
got my carpets i might sell
then those favors
placed so well
through the years in many lands
got many friends with open hands
to catch me if
the world might shake
some insurance for god's sake
