in and out Does a White Man! He will tell you like a shot If the roads are good or not; He can open up the lot, Ask a White Man!

And if about the Angels you Feel cu-ri-os-i-ty, For information prompt and true, To a White Man apply. He knows 'em, and, indeed, 'tis said Himself is almost such. His "words of wisdom" on this head Will interest you much.

Chorus.

If you want to shoot and drink, Ask a White Man! He can help you there, I think. Ask a White Man! If you'll learn to grab and fight, And be mutually polite, And observe the laws of Right, Ask a White Man!

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem.
