My story

Went to Galveston yesterday. Second time, taking the bike. Last time my clutch cable broke as I was passing Pleasure Peer. I made it passed Pleasure Peer yesterday, but no sooner than when I turned around and was passing it again, IT BROKE !

Did you pull up to a house about seven or eight
And yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!"
Look at your kingdom and you was finally there
To sit on your throne as the prince of Bel-air
