Ghetto Child

Favorite Line(s):
A child’s reality
Is paid for by his folks
Fancy fairy tales
Are born and sold by those
Who can well afford
Time to make believe
Childhood dreams can still
Come true
Uh, huh- huh- huh
Comment(s):
I had to laugh when preparing this post because I always thought / “heard” these lines differently…   I thought / remembered them as:
A child’s reality
Is paid for by his folks
Passing fairy tales
They’re bought and sold by those
Who can well afford
Time to make believe
Childhood hopes and dreams
Can still
Come true
Uh, huh- huh- huh
[And, as an aside, I practically wore the groves out of this album (“Spinners“) and the “Mighty Love” album.  The Spinners and Hall & Oates were my two favorite groups for a couple of years back in the 1970’s.  —  KMAB]

In a democracy, dissent is an act of faith.  Like medicine, the test of its value is not in its taste, but in its effects.
