RICHARD (Pete Ham)
[from Golders Green CD - recorded 1972 - released U.S. 1999]

Oh, Richard, so big and so tall
Richard, so soft and so small
You're a part of me with a mind of your own
You know what you want without being shown

Oh, Richard, so fine and so strong
Richard, where do you belong?
Controlling my life with your whims and your ways
You're making me feel whatever you say

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it when you make a friend
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it to the very end
Oh no, oh no, oh no
I hate it when you let me down
So go, so go, so go
And tell your friend I'll come around

Oh, Richard, so big and so tall
Richard, so soft and so small
Part of me with a mind of your own
You know what you want without being shown

Oh, Richard, you push and you pull
Richard, you peep through the wool
Controlling my day with the dreams of the night
You're the one king that's too strong to fight

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it when you make a friend
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it to the very end
Oh no, oh no, oh no
I hate it when you let me down
So go, so go, so go
And tell your friend I'll come around

[harmonica solo]

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it when you make a friend
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
I like it to the very end
Oh no, oh no, oh no
I hate it when you let me down
So go, so go, so go
And tell your friend I'll come around

Oh!

Oh.
