Harry Hippie By Bobby Womack

 

Everybody claims that they want the best things
out of life,
But not everyone,
want to through the toils and strifes.

Like this particular fella that walks around
all day long singin' this song
Sha na lah dah dah lah dah dah dah dah

Harry Hippie, lies asleep in the shade,
life don't bug him cause he thinks he's got it made.
He never worry about nothin' in particular
Oooh he might even sell the Free Press on Sunset (Blvd).

I like to help a man when he's down
but I can't help him much
when he's sleepin' on the ground.

He's like a bottle of water
Harry just floats through life
Walks around all day long singin' this song
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, ohhh yeah)

Mary Hippie, she's Harry's lady
Panhandles pennies just to feed Harry's baby.
She can lie down a story so incredible
Man, you wanna help her take the food
home and put it on the table.

I like to help a man when he's down,
but I can't help you Harry
if you wanna sleep on the ground.
Sorry Harry, you're too much weight
to carry around.

But he still walks around all day singin' this song
"Sha dah dah dah sha nah nah nah nah nah
nah sha lah lah lah lah dah dah dah..."

Street child, Street child, tell me where
will you be goin  when old man winter gets his horn
and starts blowin?
Will you hang around LA?
Or hitch a ride on a freeway?
Or meet an old familiar face in a new place?

I like to help a man when he's down
But how can I help him
if he's somewhere outta town?
Sorry Harry, think I'm gonna put you down.
Sha dah dah dah sha dah dah dah dah
sha lah lah lah lah dah dah dah
Everybody help me sing this song, oh yeah,
