    Charlie Red got up early like a Rooster
    Going to work...A first class Booster
    The stores were closed
    But trucks were in the back
    Charlie Red liked it like that
    In a blink of an eye he could fill up a sack

    Charlie Red,
    Master of merchandise larceny
    Got goods for the ladies in the beauty parlor to see
    By noon he would always need more
    There goes Charlie Red back to the store
    A Booster Supreme
    Ya'll know what I mean

    Business is nice
    Cause it's always less than half the price
    Special orders must be given in advance
    Charlie Red was never busted
    He never took a impulse chance

    Smooth was his action
    He didn't need a distraction
    So quickly he was in and out the door
    He always knew
    What he was there for

    Straight stealin’
    Legitimate street hustler
    Plenty to gain
    Never caused no pain
    A fifty year addiction to heroin his only grief
    RIP Charlie Red
    A respected old school brother
    And a world class thief

    BE

    You bring him to life and make me feel like I knew him. This one brings the smile right along with a tear with the hope that Charlie is finally resting in peace.

    There are many Charlie Reds out there, and they do have another side to them, the shame of it is, most never learn of it, or care, just looking to see what merchandise he has. Created vividly.
