My Wise Country Cousin on Ol’ See-Eye- (Confidential Informant) Sebben…

Dat ol’ Sharlatan boy alwaze ben suspec ta me

How de jurnalis in jail an dat ol’ boy run free?

He millytunt lak de roun’ hol fo’ de square peg

Dat ol’ boy ‘bout as crookit as a dawg’s hin’ leg

Whetha he wearin’ wire, Gerri-curl, or de ‘Cess

Wen he cum, you know he cumin wit sum mess

What JB say, “lak a dull nife dat jus’ ain’t cuttin’?”

Lawd, dat boy ben talkin’ loud an’ sayin’ nuttin’!

An’ how in hell did he git at de head ob de march

Less Randoff, Russin or Kang pass em de torch?

 

But, it don’ tak no Shurlock Homes or Calumbo

So, plese don’ cum at me wit dat mumbo-jumbo

It feel lak we jus gittin’ a tlil’ pece ob de troof

Boy up in de Offal Offuz wit his chekurd youf

It simpul as dis: “Ebry thang glittur ain’t gol

Jus’ lak ebry thang on ice sho’ nuff ain’t col

He de blak, dubul blak, 14-carrut millytunt fak

Code-name ”See-Eye-Seeben,” dat tak de cak

Don’de Seekrit Servus do wha wite fok call vet?

Nobydee hear dat Sebben frum de *IBM set?

 

60 Menits tos’ him sof bawls ‘bout book an’ wait

Nuthin’ ‘bout See-Eye-Sebben an’ See-Eye-8?

Silunce ‘bout danjurs ob being See-Eye-Sebben— 

‘Cause he wus ‘bout ta turn TB star ‘roun elebben!

Thro’d de Green Zar an Reb Rite unna de bus—

But, wit ol’ Sebben, dere wusn’t eben a lil’ fuss

Lak Calumbo, “Dere’s one thang botha me”

How walls got erz, camruz ebry pol an’ tree

Dey eben know de culur an’ time dat ah pee

How he fule Commanduh-in-Cheef, fuleAG?

Ain’t a bettin’ man, an’ don’ bose, don’ glote

But, ah figur he be wearin’ a seement obercoat…

When dey sels out ta debils wha dey expecs?

Gots a funne feelin dat ol’ Kwonza boy be nex…
