"Harry Rag" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
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 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 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
