Everybody claims that they want the best things
Outta life, (ha) but not everyone, not everyone
Want to got through the toils and strifes.

Like this particular fella, walks around
All day long singing this song

Harry Hippie, lies asleep in the shade,
Life don't bug him cause he
Thinks he's got it made.
He never worry about nothing in particular
Oh he might even sell free press on Sunset.

I'd like to help a man when he's down
But I can't help him much
