I Wish I Were A Rich Girl - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson
I wish I were a rich girl, then I could help the poor,
put away their memories of yesterday before.
No I don't like being poor, cause poor is kind of sad,
rich people always laugh at them, and make the poor feel really bad.
Working hard never no money,
it's just a shame ain't it honey?
Yeah, working, running, never going no where,
It's enough to make you pull out your hair.
People always puttin welfare down,
rich, busy bodies yacking around town.
But to be rich, and go to Hell,
not my idea of doing so well.
Those poor in life though pushed around,
will someday go to Heaven, and wear the golden crown.
