When Harpo Played His Harp - Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers from "Modern Lovers '88"

The album version starts on an E chord. This is just easier for me to sing.

     G                 C             G
When Harpo played his harp it was a mystery
G                 Em                 C     D
All the laughing stopped back to the balcony
C
Chico, Chico, sure to please
Em         D        C         G
Now let's watch him shoot the keys
      C                   Em             D 
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still


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


 
G      Em      C           D
Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
     G            Em       C        D
And where did you get that sound so fine?
G        Em   C        D
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
C               G
Oooh, one more time


G        Em    C            D
Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
    G             Em       C           D
And where did you get that sound so fine?
G       Em    C        D
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
C              G
Oooh, one more time.



         G                    C             G
Do you remember what he would do sometimes before he'd play?
     G              Em               C       D
He'd look up to the sky and look the angels' way
C
Harpo, Harpo, when you start
Em       D      C      G 
Tears of joy inside my heart
      C               D             C   G         
When Harpo played his harp, all was still



 
G        Em    C           D
Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
     G            Em       C        D
And where did you get that sound so fine?
G        Em   C        D
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
C               G
Oooh, one more time


G        Em    C            D
Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
    G             Em       C           D
And where did you get that sound so fine?
G       Em    C        D
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
C              Em
Oooh, one more time.
          C              G
Ooh oh oh ooh, one more time.
