Old Man River is really great!

Old Man River


There is an old man called Mississippi,

That's the old man I don't like to be.

What does he care if the world' d got troubles,

What does he care if the land ain' t free.

Don' t look up, and don' t look down !

You don't just make the white boss frown,

Bend your knees and bow your head,

And pull that rope until you're dead!

Let me go way from the Mississippi,

Let me go way from the white man boss.

Show me that stream call de river Jordan,

Dat de old stream dat I long to cross.


Old man river,

Dat old man river!

He must know something,

But don't say nothing.

He just keeps rolling,

He keeps on rolling along.

He don' t plant tatoes,

He don' t plant cotton,

And dem dat plant'em is soon forgotten,

But old man river,

He just keeps rolling along.


You and me we sweat and strain,

Body all aching and rocked wid pain.

Tote dat barge and lift dat bale,

Get a little drunk and you'll land in jail.

But I keep laughing instead of crying,

I must keep fighting until I'm dying,

But old man river,

He just keeps rolling along.

After a party, I drove an american girl home. She said to me " do you want to come in for a cup of coffee?"
I said no.  I see you 2morow.

The next day, she was so mad at me.  Did I miss something last nite. What she meant for what she said?

God bless you!

Another American healthy culture is AIDS

Cowboy culture

Me and my White american golf partners were having a small competition just to prove our skills. My Us-golfers always laughed at me for not being able to shoot straight.

At his turn, he to tee off. we heard a sound echoed back " ara wara ara wara"

He asked me what that african boy was saying "Ara wara ara ware"? He told us that last nite he picked up an african hot lady. In the total dark room, On bed she said the same thing " ara ware ara wara"

later, a guy shouted back at us what the boy said. It means --------------->" Wrong hole"

We all were laughing. This Cowboy is really something.... cowboy is always one way....

PJ probably got at least 50% of American culture when he said "the individual must know what is good or bad for her/him/self". The rest of American culture is how this plays out.
