A funny thing happened on my way to work
Was stopped by a down and out man
Asked if I could spare a ten spot for a coffee
Ten bucks could buy a whole damn can!
Said he didn't want to keep on bugging me
Every day when we met on the street
Thought a ten spot would keep him in coffee
For two or possibly three weeks!
I suspected this coffee he was talking about
Wasn't your Colombian brew
His breath was enough to knock down a rhino
It was extraordinarily potent, p-eew!
Well lo and behold saw a dude with a camera
Filming the whole damn scene
Turned out this down and out beggar guy
Was a plant from Candid Camera it seems!
Was just about to give him the middle finger
Good thing they told me in time
Could have seen my mug on national TV
Giving him that very rude sign!
