I don’t look for no silver dollas or gold coins,
I want that success, I think.
I wanna be important, fer sure, with a name or a pict’ure on a buildin somewhere in
The center of big ‘ol New Yawrk Cit’y
So’s that the street peoples walkin’ so innocenly look up ‘n see my mug
Plaster’d on a buildin for them people to see,
And the good lord is lookin’ at it too,
And says to me, he says,
“Frank, you finly made the big time,
You a real great guy I reckon now.”
And I stand lookin’ up too and get real happy thinkin
I finly got successful.
