Mississippi life

(Edward McBride)

This song is about a young girl who grows up poor , however at 14 she starts to blossom and wins several beauty contests. She has to filter the guys who would like to be with her. She goes back to her community to pay it forward by advising young girls about life.

Grew up in rural Mississippi Never noticed by the boys Hey, honey we can't eat tonight we really have no money At night we stole some corn and other veggies too At fourteen I had blossomed The body,legs and looks now noticed by the boys I won the County beauty contest Entered for the State Miss Mississippi I was crowned USA the next in line The agents tried to cheat me I'm much too smart for them I came from next to nothing Not going back again I thought I met a nice guy turned out like all the rest Looking for a free ride sent him on his way He also liked to stray XXX XXXXXXX X XXXXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX X XXXXX X XXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXX XX XX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX X XX XX XXXXX XX XXXX

Am Ende des Tages

By Olaf Zeiger


Ein Text, der darauf hinweisen soll, dass es nicht darauf ankommt, worüber wir reden und was wir sagen, auf was wir warten und nicht alle verstehen. Es geht um uns, um die Menschen und unser Leben. Es kommt darauf an, dass wir aktiv etwas tun, konkret jetzt und nicht Irgendwann. Auch wenn es nicht jeder versteht, verstehen will oder verstehen kann. Die Zukunft des Lebens sind wir, hier und heute. Danke.
