Text heard on Sample:
Old Lady: I have always been wily and cleverAt deceiving and swindling and such,And I feel just as clever as ever,But I seem to be losing my touch.
Yes, I'm clever, But where does it get me?My employer gets all of my take;All I get is my daily spaghetti,While he gorges on truffles and cake.
What's the use? What's the use?There's no profit in cheating,It's all so defeatingAnd wrong, oh, so wrong,That I just have to pass it along!
