Alarm clock going off
I got to get up
Yawl get up now
Get a move on
Mo ma can’t be late
It takes 2 hours
to get to work.
I swear I can’t wait
til income tax time
Mo ma gonna get a car (singing)
Laud yawl stop fool-in’ around
Who at that door?
What does he want?
What? I got til this evening to pay rent.
I told you I’d have your money-IN FULL
I gotta work a Double.
Oh alright, Mr. Smith! Alright
Good day, good day!
I got the kids off to school.
Riding public transportation
some guy and his woman are fighting.
Bus arrives right in front of Wal-mart.
I jumped out the bus and ran in to clock into my station.
I made a little conversation with a few people getting off.
I went to my station
Counted my drawer
turned my light on
my boss walked up and told me to clock out and go home.
I can’t go home
I need this job
I had this job for one week
And already they’re making me Clock OUT!
Word is, “They don’t need me today!”
What am I going to do?
I promised Mr. Smith I’d have his money.
Maybe, I can get to the Blood Bank before it closes.
By the time I got to the Blood Bank it was closed.
I went home and Mr. Smith was waiting on me to pay him.
I told Mr. Smith I didn’t have his money.
I’ll pay you tomorrow please give me one more day.
Mr. Smith face turned red
he looked real strange
I grabbed my kids who were hanging to my legs
I pleaded and pleaded with him not to evict us.
I lost another place to live.
By 6 p.m. all of my things were sitting on the curb.
