I am AM. AM I am. That damn AM! That damn AM! I do not like that damn AM! Would you like to get there SAM? It can help you to your house. I can show you with my mouse. Do not bother with your mouse. I just want to be a grouse. I want my driveway here and there, I want my driveways everywhere. You can safely drive your car. You can drive from very far. Medians can make life grand -- If you can only understand. I do not care if you agree, I only want what pleases me, I want them here so fast, fast, fast, Why should I worry 'bout their cast? You will like AM, you'll see.
