Dear boys and girls,
A-hum . . . please allow me to tell you my tale. You see, I’ve lived a very dramatic life, committed some deadly crimes, loved and hated many and in the end resided in the universal. I think you should hear my story so that you won’t make the same bad decisions. Listen and learn, junior.
It all started back in the roaring nineteen-twenties when I decided to desert my beloved city of Lorraine to walk in my father’s footsteps. I felt free at last but the nightmares stayed and kept torturing my brain. Nightmares of murders, people I had hurt and folk that had hurt me more than I’d like to take for granted. Naturally, I ran out of money somewhere along the way too - you know as they would say: the monkey was on fire.
One night, when I suddenly stood face to face with the devil who had come to collect my soul, I realised that I had dug in the wrong direction all along. Fortunately after my pleading, he decided to take my kitty cat instead of me and it was only then that I realised there had got to be another way.
That same night, I went to see the Orchestra’ play at the arena and it’s never been the same after that. The bloke at the cash register probably never did realize that . . . he wasn’t just selling tickets, he was Selling Resolutions!
Mucho Maestro, three of the finest young men, are going to sing you a dozen tell-tales of the sing-song kind in which they will narrate my complete epos.
