|Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France|
While I was thinkin' bout all that, the phone rings, and Elmer tells me, "It's Nicolas wantin' to talk to you about what he's doin' now.
"Calling again? Nicolas, if you got the kind of money to call Granny from way over there, you got enough money to take care of business, since you been runnin' around plenty too. And then there's that gal of yours, shoppin' and buying things and all. Where in tar nation you get all that money? Are you gonna be borrowing like everybody else?
or something, or that's the way it's lookin.' Lord, I was working most all the time pickin' something, corn, cotton, pecans whatever they got, so we can put you to work with the rest of us cause you're gonna have to work instead of just loafin' around like some folks do, those rich ones who don't know how to do nothin' and them others who just think they're entitled. Then there are those no count other folks who claim they have a bad back or can't leave home because they get eat up by alligators.
You figuring things out and acting tough like you said? Then do what you gonna do cause Granny sure don't like whiners who don't take Granny's advice. You telling folks you is in charge and won't stand for any funny business, now that's my boy. But you remember you gotta be fair and nice to people, and don't treat them bad just cause they different."
I told Elmer when Nicolas hung up that he was the one kid I worried about all along when he was growing up since he was fixin on all the girls and wanted to be important and then whines and everybody gets worried, then he works things out. He maybe ain't like that great grandpappy on his mother's side who had his chance to get on the boat with my great grandpappy, but Nicolas' folk they just got too blame scared to travel that far from home like Nicolas does.
Them French, I hear all they is good for is kissin'' but at least Nicolas he can do that and work too like the rest of them oughta learn.
