Glad You Be Dead, Harvey

(Sung to the old blues song, “You Rascal You”)

By Bill McCurdy

We be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!
We be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!
When you dead and in your grave,
No more houses will you crave.
We be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!

I don’t trust you near my home, you rascal, you.
I don’t trust you near my home, you rascal, you.
I don’t trust you near my home,
You wouldn’t leave my stuff alone.
I be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!

We just heard you headed east, you rascal, you.
We just heard you headed east, you rascal, you.
Time to see your ugly fall,
So we can get your ashes hauled.
We be glad, so damn glad, you rascal, you!

You tried to drown our town, you rascal, you.
You tried to drown out town, you rascal, you.
You dropped oceans on our toes
Tried to drown us, goodness knows.
You tried to drown our town, you rascal, you!

You know you done us wrong, you rascal, you.
You know you done us wrong, you rascal, you.
You know you done us wrong,
But we did not stay down long.
We just glad you be dead, you rascal, you!

We rose up and took you on, you rascal, you!
We rose up and took you on, you rascal, you!
You tried to put us down,
But you don’t do that to H Town.
We make sure you stay dead, you rascal, you!

We learn hard from what you do, you rascal, you!
We learn hard from what you do, you rascal, you!
We now use you as our teacher,
Building dams that have no breacher.
We learn strong, from what you do, you rascal, you!

Ain’t no use to run, you rascal, you.
Ain’t no use to run, you rascal, you.
Ain’t no use to run,
Now that you have had your fun.
Ain’t no use to run, you rascal, you!

You picked the wrong town to hit, you dumb ass, you!
You picked the wrong town to hit, you dumb ass, you!
Watching you die is going to be fun;
Buzzards gonna have you when we done.
You picked the wrong town to hit, you dumb ass, you!

You done messing with our lives, you rascal, you!
You done messing with our lives, you rascal, you!
Houston thrives on building stronger,
Texas fights to live well longer!
We all glad, you be dead, you rascal, you!
