Harry Rag

Ray Davies, released on Something Else by The Kinks, © Noma Music, Inc./Hi-Count Music, Inc. BMI 1967

.

Ah, Tom is young and Tom is bold

Tom is as bold as the knights of old

But whenever he gets in a bit of a jam

There's nothing he won't do to get a harry rag

.

Harry rag, harry rag

Do anything just to get a harry rag

And he curses himself for the life he's led

And rolls himself a harry rag and puts himself to bed

.

Ah, Tom's old ma is a dying lass

Soon they all reckon she'll be pushing up the grass

And her bones might ache and her skin might sag

But still she's got the strength to have a harry rag

.

Harry rag, harry rag

Do anything just to get a harry rag

And she curses herself for the life she's led

And rolls herself a harry rag and puts herself to bed

.

Ah, bless you tax man, bless you all

You may take some but you never take it all

But if I give it all, I won't feel sad

As long as I got enough to buy a harry rag

.

Harry rag, harry rag

Do anything just to get a harry rag

And I curse myself for the life I've led

And roll myself a harry rag and put myself to bed

.

Ah, the smart young ladies of the land

Can't relax without a harry in their hand

And they light one up and they boast and brag

So content because they got a harry rag

.

Harry rag, harry rag

Do anything just to get a harry rag

And they'll light one up and they'll boast and brag

So content because they got a harry rag

.

Harry rag, harry rag

I'll do anything just to get a harry rag

And I curse myself for the life I've led

And roll myself a harry rag and put myself to bed

.
