File1, 2, & 3 for abenecke:



Night funeral
In Harlem:

Where did they get
Them two fine cars?

Insurance man, he did not pay--
His insurance lapsed the other day--
Yet they got a satin box
for his head to lay.

Night funeral
In Harlem:

Who was it sent
That wreath of flowers?

Them flowers came
from that poor boy's friends--
They'll want flowers, too,
When they meet their ends.

Night funeral
in Harlem:

Who preached that
Black boy to his grave?

Old preacher man
Preached that boy away--
Charged Five Dollars
His girl friend had to pay.

Night funeral
In Harlem:

When it was all over
And the lid shut on his head
and the organ had done played
and the last prayers been said
and six pallbearers
Carried him out for dead
And off down Lenox Avenue
That long black hearse done sped,
The street light
At his corner
Shined just like a tear--
That boy that they was mournin'
Was so dear, so dear
To them folks that brought the flowers,
To that girl who paid the preacher man--
It was all their tears that made
That poor boy's
Funeral grand.

Night funeral
In Harlem.


Bill Burr :
I was born a freckled child in a land far away during a much simpler time.
I did well in school until it counted.

As a freshman in High School I had dreams of going to Notre Dame and
becoming a lawyer. By the time I was sophomore I was taking shop class
and was considering getting into construction.

I ended up working in warehousing and unloading trucks. Other than
stand up, that job was the most fun I ever had.

I am now a stand up comedian. I do a couple hundred shows a year.
And I enjoy the travel.

I’ve done four hour-long stand-up specials: “Why Do I Do This”,
“Let It Go”, “You People Are All The Same” and “I’m Sorry You Feel
That Way.” I am currently on the road “writing” my next hour.

I host a podcast each week called The Monday Morning Podcast. I have an
upcoming animated series on Netflix called: ‘F’ Is For Family.’
Occasionally I act in movies but only when they let me.


A “podcast” is sort of difficult to explain because there really isn’t
anything else like it — but rather, many things that are kind of like it.

A good starting point, is to think of a podcast as “Internet Radio
On-Demand.” It’s similar in that you can usually listen to it on your
computer — but it’s more than that. [However, and not to confuse the
issue, podcasting isn’t confined to just audio but can be video as well].

Podcasts are “On Demand” and can be listened to on your schedule — not
when a Radio Station decides to air it. So, it’s kind of like TiVo.

No lines are longer than 80 characters, TYVM. Other specified properties aren't being scored automatically at this time so this is not necessarily good news...
