"When Harpo Played His Harp" by Jonathan Richman

Well when Harpo played his harp, it was a mystery
All the laughing stopped, back to the balcony
Chico, Chico, sure to please
Now lets watch him shoot the keys
When Harpo played his harp, all was still

Well when Harpo played his harp, it was a dream, it was
Well if someone else can do it, how come nobody does
Groucho, Groucho, fast as light
Some talk like him, but not quite
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still, still..

Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
Where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
Ooo, one more time
Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
and Where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
Ooo, one more time

Do you remember what he would do sometimes before he'd play
Well he'd look up to the sky, and look the angels, a-way
Harpo, Harpo, when you start
Tears of joy inside my heart
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still
All right!

Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
And where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
Ooo, one more time
Well Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
Where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
Ooo, one more time, Oo-oo-ooh, one more time (harp sound)
