Come, Tell Me How You Live

By Jay

Come, tell me how you live.
Do you live much differently then me?
You say you live in an apartment in New York,
2 bedrooms, kitchen and full bath?
Why that isn't at all different from me.

Come, tell me how you live.
What do you do for a living?
You say you have a masters in computer science,
and do free-lance work mostly for AT&T?
I know a lot of people who do that also.

Come tell me how you live.
What do you like to do in your free time?
You say you read the New York Times,
Sports Illustrated, Time and Newsweek?
I do that to, and so do a lot of people.

Come, tell me how you live.
You have told me so much.
The only difference that I can see
is I am dating a girl, and
You, Steve, are dating a guy.
