On hearing Getachew Mekurya and the Ex


On hearing Getachew Mekurya and the Ex

i.
I had a little girl
total sweetness dont you know

like the bakery* in the night
baking sweetflour dough

She told me she loved me
someday I will see

she's got the dougth
will get a rise from me

Riding around the town
the girls like that yknow

I keep my eye on the donut
and not upon the hole.

ii.
Life is a trip
you float, rise and dip

you step on the gas
you slap her on the ass

you try to stay
off the dole - like tommy told

keep your eye on the donut
and not on the hole.

*The Kappus Bakery was on about 16th St. Brusha and Peterson worked there among others.
