Why can’t you be part of them?
Look at yourself! What is the difference between you and that folding chair?
It’s the cheapest one £6!
I can’t believe it, it has a name “G-U-N-D-E”!!!!
Do you see why you are so cheap?
Because you don’t have a fancy name.
Go and get one, make it smart.
Add a number,
trust me it will make you look expensive.
Son, don’t put the blame on me.
You got my genes!
I gave you comfy cushions.
Why are you doing anything?
Add value to yourself
You are in a realistic world.
Collectors only look at your name!
Be smart kid!
Yes you are a space safer, but so what!?
How much are you?
Though you can be multifunctional and
used as fatal weapons by gangster,
you should forget about it!!
Be elegant and classy and climb the social ladder,
like those fancy designer chairs.
I am preparing you for the future,
you should worth better.
Do you hear me?
