Ace Of Black Hearts

(04/17/1984 / Homa Lousiana)


In Nigeria oh the constant sadness it brings
scam after scam
oh how they love wealthy American men and women
oh how dark desires brings so much dismay.
with a photograph and the perfect speech
they fall one by one hook line and sinker
in only a couple days
oh they preach
tho are the poor Nigerians
the men behind the women's mask
faceless is the task
money is what binds them to you
with words like glue
their plans fall through
I'm sorry but you have just been screwed
And you might ask by who
oh tho are the poor Nigerians

~ Don't believe all are this way because of one.
Any prejudice can be undone.
