What a shame.
God let me go there some day!
Please I love my family,
I adore my friends,
But please get me out of here!

I work hard,
I earn respect,
I do my chores,
I get good grades
Why can’t I go there?
Don’t I deserve to go there?
I hope so.
God please let me go someday!
Oh God!
Please! Please! Please!
Let me go today,
Just let me get there please! Please! Please
