Confidence

(1992, a song without music)

It’s mine—-everything I see;
Yes, it’s mine, waiting patiently.
And I, I have the golden key;
It opens wide everything for me.

I walk along a busy street;
Windows shine, everything is neat.
Sellers whistle out a tune,
“Everything’s fine; buyer’s buying soon!”

And I, that am that happy guy,
I am here to say, I am here to say,

Trust yourself, use your mind;
Plan ahead or you’ll be dead;
take a chance, do your best;
Never laugh when you fall;
Trust yourself, use your mind,
You will rise every time;
pay the price, do it right,
Through the day and into night;
Never moan, stand alone,
Hold your head up in the sky;
Love the true, it’s for you,
You’ll receive recompense,
And you’ll see what I see
When you have confidence.

It’s mine—-everything I see;
Yes, it’s mine, waiting patiently.
And I, I have the golden key,
And it opens wide everything for me.

My money jingles, jingles, jingles in my pants;
Shoppers smile, and they begin to dance.
Tap, tap, tap—-they’re tapping in my ear;
What a joy to hear! They’re tapping in my ear!

And that old cabbie from the cabbie stand,
He steps right out just to shake my hand.
Then tap, tap, tap, he begins to dance;
He can’t help himself! He hasn’t got a chance!

His money jingles, jingles, jingles in his pants
And yes, I dance!

Trust yourself, use your mind,
Pay the price, do it right,
Never moan, stand alone,
Dance away into the night.

Tap tap tap, tap tap tap, tap tap tap…. tap………. tap!
