Wake up every day richer than Julius Caesar
cuz I got acetylsalicylic to treat my fever.
I can crunch ice cubes beneath the hottest summer sun
and I travel north and south chasing desired season.

I been on ocean liners and I been on jet planes,
not even speed of sound is a modern restraint.
Julie’s slave powered galleys sailed round Mediterranean,
never flew six miles high, never passed the setting sun.

Jay-Cee had a cool library in Alexandria
but, “Burn, baby, burn!” was Julie’s library mantra.
Wisdom of the ages coded into bytes and bits
got a billion Alexandrias at my fingertips.

Mama Caesar’s split decision’s where we get name caesarean,
breech baby deliveries ain’t deadly with modern young-uns.
Remus and Romulus were suckled by wolf bitch
used to have to snap, tear, claw and fight now we can coexist.

When I get a little cut it ain’t turning sceptic
acute appendicitis surgery is not elective.
Julie was stabbed to death at the age of fifty-six;
“Et tu, Brute?” was his last lesson in civics.

I got hot and cold running from my water taps
and when I’m tired lay in luxury for my nap.
Gaius Julius Caesar was a phenom indeed
but my life compared to Julie’s has more luxury.

Wake up every day richer than Julius Caesar
cuz I got acetylsalicylic to treat my fever.
Julie’s slave powered galleys sailed round Mediterranean,
never flew six miles high, never passed the setting sun.

Julie was stabbed to death at the age of fifty-six;
“Et tu, Brute?” was his last lesson in civics.
“So dies Caesar,” bye-bye, Julie, bye-bye!
Equality’s advancing as world is revivified.
