Happy Birthday Mr. Butch: in your own words

I was the king of Kenmore Square, yes I was.
I was a man outside in the streets, always had a buzz …
… I was the king of Kenmore Square, and that is the truth.
I was not a crazy man, definitely no goof …
… I was a strong person, I went out every day
I had jobs around the place, I went out every day …
… I wasn’t allowed in the Buckminster Hotel.
I got bothered by BU police like hell.

I got bothered by the BU police so many different times.
I been bothered by them, I could make up all types of rhymes.
I can also go fast and remember all the things that they did to me.
I would not lie to your reality …
… But now them days are done, and now I’m here,
with my sleeping bag in Allston.
