Step One:


Well I suppose you’d like to know why I brought you here for.  But I got something to say. Would you like to hear it? Here it go. Number one I hear a lot of and I see a lot of crap, I know a lot of people sit on their flap and go..  Bwak bwak bwak bak bak bak bawk, but that’s not me no-dee-no. Well, I got a good gig.  I got a good job.  I got a good girl that don’t stop.  I gotta go pee, oh that’s a good joke, oh no-dee-no, I guess it’s not, but anywhore, I suppose you’d like to know a little more.

Step one, baby, get it while it’s hot. Aint no sense in wastin another second you got. Step one, life aint gunna come to your door.  I got a big beef with people who are like, “But the world is really tough. I’m depressed, I’m so fat, I’m alone, I need a hug.”  Holy shit!  Shut up!  Why don’t you get a gag and save some time for people like me.  I’d rather watch assisted living or reality TV.  I bust my ass to get to get to get the things that I got, and you expect expect expect, that gold will like fall from the clouds into your silky smooth palms. Like it should just rain down diamonds because you’re so fucking special. “Uh Dave” Uh yeah. “What’s step two?”

Ooh step two, baby, you’re Jean Luc Picard! Captain of the vessel you’re the man that’s in charge.  Step two, engage, make it so!  “I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I don’t know what you think about me.”  “I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I don’t know what you think about me.” I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I don’t know what you think about me.  I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I don’t know what you think about. So, you’re almost there, you’re working your ass off. The end is in sight and you’re like, “Sweet tits! Tight pants!” But there’s one other thing you gotta worry about, you see. Ungh. I got a good gig. I got a good job. I got a good girl, and she’s hot!  I got everything anyone could want, but I’m miserable as fuck. And you’re like, “really?” And I’m like, “no, but yeah kinda”. And you’re like, “oh shit”, and I’m like, “I know.”

Step three, baby, hell if I know. I aint no good at happiness, but I got some goals.  Three, well I usually just proceed back to step one.  Step one baby.  Step two baby.  Step three three three three three, baby baby baby. Step one, little baby, get it while it’s hot. Aint no sense in waiting another second you got. Step one, life aint gunna come to your door. Ooh step two, baby, you’re Jean Luc Picard! Captain of the vessel you’re the man that’s in charge.  Step two, engage, make it so! Step three, baby, hell if I know. I aint no good at happiness, but I got some goals.  Three, I usually just proceed back to step one.
