Years ago the “Emotions” said don’t ask my neighbor
But I say just the opposite please ask and do me a favor.
Ask them how I spoke or waved to them each morning
Before I went about my daily routine
Ask them how I tried to keep the backyard and the
Front yard of our apartment building clean
Ask them how I was respectful of others and kept
The volume on my radio and television down
Ask them how I kept control of my children year ’round.
Ask them how I participated in block club activities
Ask them how I campaigned to help put our
Neighborhood on the map in this city!
But more importantly ask them how I tried to provide
A loving home for my family and those outside of our four walls,
Come on…go ahead and ask my neighbors…that’s my story,
And I’m sticking to it…yeah that’s it…and that’s all…
