You Rascal YouBy Louis ArmstrongNow I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you, uh-huhI'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you, oh yeahWell, I let you into my home; you gonna leave my woman aloneI'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, youNow I'll be glad when you die, you rascal, you, uh-huhI'll be glad, oh, I'll be tickled to death when you leave this earth--it's true, oh yeahWhen you're lyin' down six feet deep, no more fried chicken will you eatI'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you, oh yeahAh, you just ain't no good, oh, you dogNow listen here: I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you, uh-huhI'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you, oh yeahI'll be standin' on the corner high when they drag your body byI'll be glad when you're dead; you know I'm gonna be so happy when you're gone, you dogI'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you

I, too, sing America. I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well, And grow strong. Tomorrow, I'll be at the table When company comes. Nobody'll dare Say to me, 'Eat in the kitchen,' Then. Besides, They'll see how beautiful I am And be ashamed- I, too, am America.

What A Wonderful WorldBy Louis ArmstrongI see trees of green, red roses tooI see them bloom for me and youAnd I think to myself what a wonderful world.I see skies of blue and clouds of whiteThe bright blessed day, the dark sacred nightAnd I think to myself what a wonderful world.The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the skyAre also on the faces of people going byI see friends shaking hands saying how do you doThey're really saying I love you.I hear babies crying, I watch them growThey'll learn much more than I'll never knowAnd I think to myself what a wonderful worldYes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

HarlemBy Langston Hughes What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore— And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
