I Got Successful


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.
