GOOD KING BUZZ
(Tom Paxton)

When the Good King Buzz was buzzin', I was halfway down the street.
I heard the sound of music and the sound of dancing feet.
Like a second-hand calliope just slightly out of key,
They all raised their voices in a harmony.

When the Good King High was risin', I was tryin' to crack on down.
Someone started playin' piano and he was tossin' the chords around.
And then the washboard started bangin' with a heck of a one, two, three,
And they raised their voices in a harmony.

They sang, "La-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
La-la-la, la-la-la-la."

Oh, I was knockin' on every door;
I was runnin' from floor to floor.
They were somewhere close at hand -
They were 'bout to be my favorite band.

When the Good King Miles was mellow, I was back down on the street.
Halfway to my bus stop, admittin' my defeat.
When they yelled down from my window, and they were yellin' down to me,
And we raised our voices in a harmony.

We sang, "La-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
La-la-la, la-la-la-la."

Oh, I was knockin' on every door;
I was runnin' from floor to floor,
They were somewhere close at hand -
They were 'bout to be my favorite band.

When the Good King Miles was mellow, I was back down on the street.
Halfway to my bus stop, admittin' my defeat.
When they yelled down from my window, and they were yellin' down to me,
And we raised our voices in a harmony.

We sang, "La-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
La-la-la, la-la-la-la."
We sang, "La-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
La-la-la, la-la-la-la."
