"Happy The Man" as written by and Robert James Smith....
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 he?s jesus christ - but I don?t care

He is a good man...

    General CommentI love this song andsuprised no body has commented on it. It was a crime that it was not included on Nursery Crime or Foxtrot as it would have added some humourous lightness (especially the former). It's so wonderfully uplifting, sounding like a cross between Follow you, Follow me and Solisbury Hill.

    Happy the man who's faith is secure in God, Happy the man who is a follower of Jesus. I'm not joking, life will never necessarily be better as a Christian but a faith in Christ does help you cope with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.
