ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR NEIGHBOR

   ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR NEIGHBOR

So many people seem to need me 
“can you trim my bushes and that tree?”
but I am as an ant is to a bee
I now I look upon everyone as an enemy

they need me because his wife has pneumonia and jr. has a rare disease
so I comfort them with some tea to put them all at ease
the man across town can't fix his car
so I walk there to help him even though it's so damned far

little millie has no toys she used to enjoy
because it seems her daddy is a man no one will employ
and although it was a long walk I went out and got her a new toy
as I walked home I could only hope i'd chosen something she will enjoy

“will you pick all those ugly old weeds?”
and so I try to meet everyone's needs
“i'm old and weak so could you cut my grass”
well from now on i'm just going to tell them all to kiss my bloody a*s
