   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
