What is the same?

 

They come in here. Buy a fag. Have a light. Leave it. On the ground. Who picks that up. Who wants to. Who pays for that. Me? Don’t want to. Let it stay there. Let it stink. Their funeral. Their smell. Let ’em stand in it. Let ’em stink. Don’t bother me. Didn’t marry ’em. Won’t be kissin’ ’em. Won’t get smell. So let ’em come. Let ’em in here. They buy fags from me. And I sell. Just don’t get cute. Ain’t your barmaid. Ain’t your girlfriend. Talk don’t sell. Fags what sell. Fags and silence. Take your silence. Smoke and smell. Then get outta here.
