Subject: RE: Just A Dirty Old Man??
Click here for a very large collection of Harry Chapin lyrics, but not this song, which is identified as a spoken piece. Actually, he does sing one verse of the song, which he says he wrote in his "cool macho stud" period in the sixties, when he didn't sell any records:
I've had pretty women
In my day
Yeah, those long-haired beauties
Simply ran my way-ay
I treat 'em rotten
They just love me more
And when they gave me trouble, I just
Showed 'em the door
I'm a dirty old man.
And I don't give a damn.
-From the "Tonight Show," NBC, December 20, 1977-
Sounds like something Rick Fielding would sing, doesn't it????
