Hello, I'm Harry
I've had women, I've had germs
They're eerie, wild and wailing,
And seductive in small doses

Only one way
Only one way
Why can't we take a couple of tablets?

Hello, I'm Harry
Did you receive the letter sent?
The check enclosed, the negatives
Well here's some headlines
Current and sensible

Moscow's in Ayrshire,
What's the problem?
Should I throw my tammy in the ring
And run for president?
Oh, it's farmed out
Oh, I'm penned in
Oh, I'm left to no doubt
I'm happy alone
I'm happy alone

The chocolate's watching,
The cuckoos are clocking me
They leave me alone in my sulk
Stalking a beautiful girl in a rural spot
It gets larger
As she gets nearer

There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way, only one way,
There's only one way,
The rest is just
Chemistry

    General CommentHello, I posted this. Just some notes on the lyrics:

    Hayfever's lyrics are quite hard to understand, and no official lyrics were ever posted. Therefore, I used the site "I Hate Music," which is linked from the official website. However, I did change one lyric to what I thought it had to be: the site lists "I'm happy alone" as "I'm Harry, hello", but "I'm happy alone" is what I hear, and I like it better that way.

    Also, a tammy is short for a kind of hat. Throwing the tammy in the ring is the same as throwing the hat in the ring in Scotland. So there.

    General CommentBy the way, this is my favorite song of all time. Anyone know what it's about? It sounds political, somehow.

    General CommentHi, this is a great song and i love it. i'm not a native english speaker, so i amazed when i read comments about it's hard interpretation. anyway, i think it is about the fear that you feel when aproach a girl, when you try to pick up her. he first say "hello i'm harry" later talk about the letter sent, taking the risk to face her, almost givin up "i'm happy alone" and stalkin and finally "theres only one way" (aproaching her anyway) and look for chemistry. great song.
