Whoop And Holler - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

And when you whoop and holler,
'Cause your rent aint paid...
With a blaming finger done,
To one who's been at your aid.
All you do is isolate yourself more and more,
When you jump up and down...
With your lips on the floor!

And when you whoop and holler,
Like you need to be caged.
All you show to people,
Is a raging that's crazed.

You're not the only one today upset!
I suggest you sit down,
Before somebody breaks your neck!

And when you whoop and holler,
'Cause your rent aint paid...
With a blaming finger done,
To one who's been at your aid.
All you do is isolate yourself more and more,
When you jump up and down...
With your lips on the floor!

And when you whoop and holler,
Like you need to be caged.
All you show to people,
Is a raging that's crazed.

You're not the only one today upset!
I suggest you sit down,
Before somebody breaks your neck!

Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.
Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.
You're the one who chose to live your life the way you do.
Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.

And when you whoop and holler,
Like you need to be caged.
All you show to people,
Is a raging that's crazed.

You're not the only one today upset!
I suggest you sit down,
Before somebody breaks your neck!

Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.
Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.
You're the one who chose to live your life the way you do.
Pull yourself together stop that hooting like a fool.

And when you whoop and holler,
'Cause your rent aint paid...
With a blaming finger done,
To one who's been at your aid.
All you do is isolate yourself more and more,
When you jump up and down...
With your lips on the floor!

All you do is isolate yourself more and more,
When you jump up and down...
With your lips on the floor!
