    MEN AT WORK
    ::::::::::::::::::::::::

    Brethren, tis' time to relate a tale
    Yes... of one baby sitter
    We cannot fail (come on..)
    She thru our history,
    Worked finger to bone...
    Phenomenal woman, without whom
    None of our black *****, (say what..)
    Be born! (word..)

    Practiced good love-craft,
    Belabored black pain (go head..)
    Enlists... in race nuturing (we hear you..)
    Yet dogged.... by black men (crickets chirping...)
    Required work when overworked (throat clearing..)
    First baby doll... a man (crickets again..)
    Miss Raggedy Ann, been screwed by too many of you...
    Baby, you know that ain't cool... (could hear a pin drop..)

    Do, daddy-hood some good (alright..)
    Missionary position loving fools...
    Sisters' frustration is evident (**** crickets, again..)
    Talkin' bout, you love women! (knucklehead: they'll do in a pinch..)
    The gay bar right around the corner funny man (mad laughter..)
    Macho man songs been dead and gone... hitting women!
    Cowards hit women! (you know who you are..)
    Step up boys, let's all lend a hand... (testosterone level surges)
    Our women know of chilin'... grow up, be a man! (raise the roof..)
