If I Were A Beggar

If I were a beggar,
Let me be a beggar of class Oh Lord,
Give me the best of wine and lager
And dine and dance in style and valour
Wear the best designer clothes all year round
Let me be a beggar of class

If I were a beggar,
Let me enjoy the fine things of life,
Let me ride in the limos
And fly in the choppers and gamble in casinos,
Who knows,
A beggar loosing a million a night is not bad,
Then let me be a member of Kenyan parliament
Where I wont pay taxes
Because I am a beggar by high debts
