Song for Wesley

Today is the 5th anniversary of Wesley Willis death.
Wesley Willis was a busker musician and artist from Chicago. A diagnosed schizophrenic, he gained a sizable cult following in the 1990s after releasing several hundred songs of unique but simple music, with emphasis on his humorous, bizarre stream-of-consciousness lyrics.
On August 21, 2003, at the age of 40, Willis died due to complications from chronic myelogenous leukemia.At the time of his death, he had recorded over 1,000 songs but his total life savings were less than $300. Having sold out hundreds of venues across the country, the question still remains where all of Willis' money went.
