They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town, With political connections to spread his wealth around. Born into society, a banker's only child, He had everything a man could want: power, grace and style. But I work in his factory And I curse the life I'm living And I curse my poverty And I wish that I could be, Oh, I wish that I could be, Oh, I wish that I could be Richard Cory.

by The Temptations

Slide 13

It was the third of September; that day I'll always remember, 'cause that was the day that my daddy died. I never got a chance to see him;never heard nothin' but bad things about him. Mama I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.(Spoken)Mama just looked at him and said, "Son,(Sung)Papa was a rollin' stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.

Folks say Papa would beg, borrow or steal to pay his bills. Hey, Mama, folks say Papa was never much on thinkin'; Spend most of his time chasin' women and drinkin'! Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth. (Spoken) Mama just hung her head and said, "Son, (To Chorus)
