Joe Louis' Furniture - Kate Campbell

 

Joe Louis' Furniture by Kate Campbell


I've got a coffee table
Made of mahogany
With cigarette burns
And water rings
But that don't bother me
I bought it at an auction
Ten years ago
I put my feet up on it
And watch the fights on HBO
Float like a butterfly
Sting like a bee
I am the greatest
Said Muhammad Ali
Oh, but I've got Joe Louis'
Furniture in my den
Twelve years running world
Heavyweight champion
And in my book well
He's the best
There's ever been
And you can't take
That away from him
He came from Alabama
He didn't come from much
He fought his way up
To the top
Then lost his money
To the government
So here I sit
In his old chair
Something about this
Don't seem fair
Now I've worked hard
All my life
With nothing
To show for it
But a poor man's pride
