26″ x 22″ Hand Cut, Hand Sewed Appliqué Quilt

Thinking of a master plan
Cause ain’t nothing but sweat inside my hand
So I dig into my pocket, all my money spent
So I dig deeper, but still coming up with lint
So I start my mission, leave my residence
Thinking how could I get some dead presidents
I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid
So I think of all the devious things I did
I used to roll up, this is a hold up
Ain’t nothing funny
Stop smiling, be still, don’t nothing move
But the money
But now I learned to earn cause I’m righteous
