Hi-De-Ho (That Old Sweet Roll)

Carole King


Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
A-singin'
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho

I've been down so long
Bottom looked like up
Once I thought that second saves
Was enough to fill my cup
Now I offered all I got
And that ain't no way to live
Bein' taken by the ones who got the least amount to give

Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
A-singin'
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho

Once I met the devil, he was mightly slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
And said, you could have your pick
But when he laid the paper on me
And he showed me where to sign
I said, Thank you very kindly
But I'm in too great a need of mind

Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna get me a piece of the sky
Gonna get me some of that old sweet roll
A-singin'
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho
