ONE CENT -THE DAY BOOK-ONE CENT
BY JIM MANEE"
(Suggestion for words Jake Loeb
should sing to the tune of "Don't
Bite the Hand That's Feeding You.")
If you don't like the way I'm doing
I should worry, it's nix aus to me.
I have reasons of my own
Why I never pull a "bone."
I have all of the teachers up a tree,
I can fire, I can hire at my discre
tion. Things will go as I want them to be.
And in spite of a rotten impression,
I'll bite the hand that's feeding me. 1
P. S. Chorus Some Bunk.
