"Hi-De-Ho (That Old Sweet Roll)" as written by and Gerry/king Goffin....
Hi de ho, hi de hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gotta find me some o' that old sweet roll
A singin'
Hi de hi de hi de hi de ho

I've been down so long
Bottom looked like up
Once I thought that second saves
Was enough to fill my cup
Now I offered all I got
And that ain't no way to live
Bein' taken by the ones
Who got the least amount to give

[Chorus]

Once I met the devil â?? he was mighty slick
Tempted me with wordly goods
And said you could have your pick
But when he laid the paper on me
And he showed me where to sign
I said, â??Thank you very kindly
But I'm in too great a need of mind.â??

[Chorus]
