Baby, I aint got no money

Yesterday I was on my way home on the subway and there is a man singing. He had a beautiful voice. He was popping out some Three Dog Night tunes which is already a weakness of mine, eventually the song came to an end and he started giving his homeless man speech. These types of things happen all the time, but usually it's just people begging for money by trying to make people feel sorry for them. This man was the compete opposite. This guy was chipper, doing his thing, singing songs, and he was hilarious. Truly gifted. He was telling the crowd that he was not a begger, he was trying to earn anything they were willing to give him. I gave him the only amount of cash I had on me which was only a dollar unfortunately. I would have donated to him anyway because he had spunk, but the thing that sealed the deal was when he yelled "SMILE PEOPLE, IT'S NOT GOING TO RUIN YOUR DAMN HAIR." That, my friends, is true. God bless that man.
