**** ▒ Een lekkere Funky plaat van de inmiddels 58 jarige Amerikaanse zanger "Steveland Morris Judkins Hardaway" uit eind oktober 1973 (Holland) !!! "Stevie" scoorde er, zij het bescheiden, zijn 10e Top 40 hit in Nederland mee !!! (NL Top 40: 3 wk / # 33) ☺!!!
** Hmm. If it weren't for the music and a pretty decent chorus, this would be absolutely dismal.
The verses (e.g. "teachers keep on teachin'/preachers keep on preachin'") are horrendous. As in, there probably hasn't been a song, ever, where the lyrics have meant anything less than what these lyrics do.
I know there is a message here, but relaying that message in the least interesting way possible doesn't do this any favours.
Typers keep on typing, writers keep on writing... Can I get my own song too?
