I HAVE SEEN WHAT WHAT MONEY DOES TO NOBLE MEN.I HAVE GONE FROM WONDERING WHY LORD TO THANK YOU LORD.I HAVE BEEN IN A PLACE OF EXTREME LAZILY TO A PLACE WHERE PURPOSE WOULDN'T LET ME SLEEP. I HAVE TREKKED MILES SO I COULD SING AND BE APPLAUDED TO SINGING TRUTH INTO SOULS OF OBSTINATE MEN.
I HAVE GONE FROM A POINT OF NA THE LAST GARRI BE THIS O,MAKE WE DRINK AND REST TO A PLACE OF BABY WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO EAT THIS MORNING.
