We Real Cool 
 
               The PoolPlayers.
        Seven at the Golden Shovel.
 
            We real cool.We   
            Left school. We
 
            Lurk late. We
            Strike straight. We
 
            Sing sin.We   
            Thin gin. We
 
            Jazz June. We   
            Die soon.
