By Nilsson - Perry Botkin, Jr

from the Harry Nilsson 1981 Mercury Records album: Flash Harry

(Spoken: harry) say.. Fox? Where you walking?

(Spoken: fox) what you mean? You want do some business?

(Spoken: harry) uh- huh

(Spoken: fox) well lets check it out

All right!

I've got it

Got it!

Right down here in your hole in my pocket

I've got it!

Got it!

It's down to the green in your wallet

It's mine to give and I'll give it away

And you can't just pay enough

For the time it takes to make me yours

It's mine to give

It certainly isn't yours

 

I've got it !

Got it!

It's right down here

And it's just where you want it.

I've got it!

Got it!

Keeping it under a key and locket.

It's mine to give to whomever I choose

And no one can lose

and you just can't pay enough

For this wonderful stuff I use

Can't cover my dues

First you spread your two knees open wide

Think of England, left come inside

I've got it

Got it!

I can tell by the bulge in your pocket

You've got it!

Got it!

Keeping it under a key and locket.

I can't afford what you want to pay

But I am here to say it's a lovely day.

Yes I am here to say it's a lovely day

But I don't love you

Now let's get straight to the point

Got no time to mess around with you

Listen! You know the routine

Put it in the nightstand

Four hundred

oooooooo oooo o o oo o o o o

Well alright then

Got change for a twenty

You know I've got it

I got it!

It's down here in your hole in my pocket

Now it's down to the green in your wallet

It's mine to give

and to give it away

But you just can't pay enough for me

because You know what I've got

I mean I think you know

I mean if I like you that's one thing

But this ain't gonna be no freebee

I don't want you to get all happy inside

And not pay for this ride

Do you know what I mean?

Say would you like to here Tenderly

Well that's different Now

Hey, I like the color of your stuff

Now that these business transactions are over

We can begin

Well my goodness!

Will you take a look at that

Woooooo

All shiny and purple and everything

It's getting larger by the minute

Hey you know something

On second thought

I think I would greatly appreciate it

If you put that thing away

Or put it someplace else

What if I gave you five dollars just to leave this room

(fading out)

I mean ah..

Hey! Listen! I am not just kidding around

I've got some friends downstairs and they got it.

You know what I mean?

Pretty soon there will be a knock on the door

and nah nah nah nah nah and you know you'll be in for something

Hey! Now don't get to friendly. Hey! No! Wait!

I'd love to share with you regarding Harry Nilsson, his life and his music.
