Can I Have A Beer On You Sir?
Copyright George Papavgeris, September 2001
Celebrating the impudence of the habitually poor.

People often call me names and say that I'm a fool
Just because I walk the streets all day and like to sing a song.
I don't wear many clothes and I am barefoot as a rule
But I know that I am right and everybody else is wrong.
Worry, sorrow, problems have I none
My day is all my own and I have no need to run
So call me what you like and have your little fun
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.
Monday, Tuesday, it's all the same to me,
I don't envy anybody and nobody bothers me
Any day of the week I'm happy as can be
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.

When I'm feeling peckish, I don't have to look too far,
I only have to knock on the back door of any restaurant.
When I'm feeling thirsty, I will ask you for a jar;
Just because I haven't paid, it doesn't taste no different.
Begging, sponging, are dirty words to me;
I'm doing you a favour, so your conscience can be free.
And if you don't want to sit too close it doesn't bother me,
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.
Monday, Tuesday, it's all the same to me,
I don't envy anybody and nobody bothers me
Any day of the week I'm happy as can be
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.

I walk around and sing my songs from morning until dark
While you work your fingers to the bone to make a little money.
At night I'll find a box and my own bench in the park
And always in my dreams I'm in the land of milk and honey.
Dollars, euros, hapiness don't make
It's you who is the fool and you need to take a break.
I will share my crust with you if you will share your steak
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.
Monday, Tuesday, it's all the same to me,
I don't envy anybody and nobody bothers me
Any day of the week I'm happy as can be
Just as long as I can sing and I can have a beer on you, Sir.
