Released as a single, 1972. produced by genesis/john anthony.

Happy the man - he lives a simple life
He doesnt have much - it doesnt worry him
Where you go - where?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a nun with a gun - Im wonderful fun
Laughing all through - just watching you
Seems a very stupid game...
But I dont care

Happy the man - he doesnt buzz around
Nothing he wants - any more than anything
Where you go - where?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a fool in the pool - Im incredibly cool
With a grin on my chin - Im certain to win
Someone says hes jesus christ - but I dont care

He is a good man...
