This song makes so much more sense when you see the lyrics. Like when he sang people it sounded like me bo/beau And I didn't get the Basie, Miller, Sachmo or who Sir Duke was (Duke Ellington) until seeing the lyrics.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However If you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it works!
