I'm a happy man
this guy "bob" hasn't worked for a year
every day, every night he smokes out his fear
it makes him see things clearer and the hours go fast
he says: "i wish they'd do this stronger so the highwould last!"
they're throuwing out reshid because theu say he couln't stay
he ain't got a job, he is not paying anyway
there're buying him a ticket and sending him home
"but home is here", he says, "and it's the only one i know!"
mary down the block who can't pay the bills
she's got four kids because she keeps forgetting her pills
"i'm really sorry 'bout this" her former landlord claims
"but this is business as usual, there's no room for playing games"
pete fixed a creditcard and got himself a new day
"i was certain that the boss would let me stay"
now his bookie's got him real heavy on the hook
"my microwave oven was the last thing they took"
my friend jim is all down and he only wants to die
his girlfriend lisa just left him for another guy
he says: "i sit all day just waiting by the phone"
"a blue movie prevents me from feeling alone"
but me, i got me a washing machine
everyday everything that i wear is really clean
my fridge is always full, you know, just in case
my vcr is programmable uptil thirty days
I have got four hundred cs'd, what do you want to hear
my stereo is adaptable to any kind of ear
today is friday, i'll have a steak and some wine
because i'm a real happyman, i really feel fine
