The Boss has got a new autymobilly, and he says itz a rattling good car.
This one's got a self starter on it - I remember the first won the Boss had, it had a self stopper an' he yused to get oute an' kik it when it woodent go. He aint got outa the habbit of wareing hevy shoos yet.
I ast the Boss why did he pay so mutch munney 4 hiz kar when I seen one down 2 the garrage just as slik and shiny az hiz 4 haf wot he pade.
The Boss says it don't kost no moar 2 paint a tin car than a rele won, an' he says that there's sum fellers jus' like cheep autty-mobillys, sum slik on the outside but with bum work incide.
The Boss says the moar you kurn 2 think aboute it, the moar you find fellers iz like auttymo-billys.
He says that thair's lotz of chaps wot kant get their mixtture right, or their geres don't mesh or their Klutch don't hold or their breaks slips evvery time they strike a graid, or their oute ov gassyleen every time therz sum rele wurk 2 B dun.
The Boss says that some fellers go snortin' and puffin' aroun', and jus' to heer 'em you wood think they wuz 90 horse power, but when you get a chanct to size up their power plant they hav only 1 sylinnder, an' blaim poor trantzmission.

The Boss says that the rele fellers like the rele auttymobillys go slidin' along not maikin' no noize till you get in their way.
He says that the big men an' the big auttys boath hav lotz ov power, but itz flexibull so they don't hav 2 uze it unless they kneed it.

The Boss said that thair wuz lotz ov fellers willin' 2 run things if they diden' hav 2 start 'em. I ast the Boss why wuz it that he sat down so hard on so menny of my ambittions, an' he sed I lakked koncentration. He says a aig slammed up against a brik wall is 2 spraddled oute 4 futchur use, but D-positted karefully in a fryin' pan it stans a chantz of bein' a azzistantz 2 humannilty.
I koncentratted my attenshun wuntz on 3appel pyes I swiped frum Ma's pantry but they reversed the kurrent an' koncen-trated in me, and the dokktor sed that I wood never B the saim againe. The Boss says that this life iz a awful struggel, but so menny foaks spendz 1/2 thair time strugglin' 2 rekkover frum things they knew blaim wel they had-dent ot 2 dun.
I tole the Boss I x-pected 2 B-kum a grate man sum day az I wuz layin' a foundattion of industry, an' integgrity (I got that from a story book), an' he says that my foundattion wuz awl write if I wuz uzing the rite kind of cement.
