Genesis – Happy The Man lyrics

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

Happy the man - he lives a simple life
He doesn't have much - it doesn't worry him
Where you go - where?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a nun with a gun - I'm wonderful fun
Laughing all through - just watching you
Seems a very stupid game...
But I don't care

Happy the man - he doesn't buzz around
Nothing he wants - any more than anything
Where you go - where?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere

Like a fool in the pool - I'm incredibly cool
With a grin on my chin - I'm certain to win
Someone says hes jesus christ - but I don't care

He is a good man...
