What Say You...

What Say You...
(Travis Tritt - Featuring John Mellencamp)
*Video clip at the sidebar*

I believe that there's a right
And I believe that there's a wrong
That north and south
Black and white
Can somehow get along
What say you
What say you

I believe that there's a basic good in the heart of every man
And I'm not gonna criticize what I can't understand.
What say you
What say you

I'm not afraid to say what's on my mind
To take a stand, to draw the line
To speak my heart and bare my soul
I don't like lies
I'd rather know the truth
Yea, what say you
What say you

But I'm not ashamed of where I come from
With this blue collar on my shirt
And I don't look for handouts
Cause I'm not afraid of work
What say you
Yeah, what say you

Man, I don't talk no religion
And I ain't gonna wave that flag
But I love God and America (Oopps Malaysia...) :)
And I fight for what I have
What say you
Yeah, what say you

I know I'm not always right
I don't think I'm better than you
I don't have all the answers
But I'll share my point of view
What say you
I'm not afraid to say what's on my mind
Take a stand and draw that line
To speak my heart and bare my soul
I don't like lies
I'd rather know the truth
So what say you
What say you
What say you and you and you and you ...
What say you

Merchant and the Fisherman...

An American merchant was travelling around close to a Mexican village once. He then saw this local fisherman arriving back from the sea with a few fish in his boat.

"How long did it take you to catch the fish?", The merchant asked the fisherman.

"A very short time", replided the fisherman.

"Why didn't you wait longer so you could catch more fish?" asked the American merchant.

"Because this much is enough to fill up my family's stomach.", said the fisherman.

The merchant then asked: "what do you do with the rest of your time?"

"Well, I sleep late; then I'd do a little fishing; then I play with my kids; then I'd go in the village to drink and play guitar with friends. That's all we do...", was the Mexican fisherman's response.

The American merchant then said: "Well, I have studied in the Harvard and I can help you. You have to fish more and sell them. Then you can buy a larger boat with its money and with the income you get off that you can then buy more fishing boats. Then you'll have a lot more boats for fishing.

"And then what?", asked the fisherman.

The merchant replied: "instead of selling your fish to the medelling man you can sell them directly to the customers and set up a business for yourself... Then you'd build a factory and supervise its productions... Then you'd leave this small village and then you go to Mexico City! And after that to Los Angeles! And after that to New York... That is where you'd be doing more important jobs...

The fisherman asked: "how long would that take?"

"About fifteen to twenty years!", said the merchant.

"And then what sir?", asked the fisherman.

The merchant responded: "that is the best part: when the right time comes, you'd go and sell the company's stocks at a very high price. This will bring you millions of dollars of revenues!

The fisherman, excited, said, "millions of dollars? And then he asked, "well, what then?"

The merchant replied: "then you'd be retired! you'd go to a small coastal village! Where you can sleep late, do a little fishing and play around with your kids! And then go in the village to play guitar with your friends, stay late time and have fun.

Men Vs Women

Three women and three men are traveling by train to the football game. At the station, the three men each buy a ticket and watch as the three women buy just one ticket.

'How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?' asks one of the men.

'Watch and learn,' answers one of the women.

They all board the train. The three men take their respective seats but all three women cram into a toilet together and close the door. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets.

He knocks on the toilet door and says, 'Ticket, please.' The door opens just a crack, and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on. The men see this happen and agree it was quite a clever idea; so, after the game, they decide to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.

When they get to the station they buy a single ticket for the return trip but see, to their astonishment, that the three women don't buy any ticket at all!!

'How are you going to travel without a ticket?' says one perplexed man.

'Watch and learn,' answer the women.

When they board the train, the three men cram themselves into a toilet, and the three women cram into another toilet just down the way. Shortly after the train is on its way, one of the women leaves her toilet and walks over to the toilet in which the men are hiding. The woman knocks on their door and says, 'Ticket, please.'

(I'm still trying to figure out why men ever think they are smarter than women)... ;)
