Stinkface Joe by Harvey Dog

Stinkface Joe Drawing

I’m putting on my top hat, white tie, white tails,
top hat top hat top hat top hat…

Stinkface Joe – walking down the street
Stinkface Joe – not enough to eat
Stinkface Joe – head in the clouds
Stinkface Joe – scattering the crowds
Stinkface Joe

relax if you can
forget about the man
we gotta get a plan
where ya goin’ to?
Stinkface Joe

I can’t hear you!!

Stinkface Joe – doesn’t trust his friends
Stinkface Joe – doesn’t trust himself
Stinkface Joe – sleeping on the streets
Stinkface Joe – can’t sleep at the shelter
..anymore

eyeballs dancing
silent screaming
his meds are missing
here come the cops
Stinkface Joe
where ya goin’?
Stinkface Joe

I’m not telling!!

Give us a clue
Stinkface Joe

no home for joe (2x)
where ya goin’ to Stinkface Joe
no home for joe (2x)

Waiting for the man – Stinkface Joe
Waiting for the man – 30 below
Waiting for the man – he didn’t show
Waiting for the man – he never showed

Waiting for the man – Stinkface Joe
Waiting for the man – 30 below
Waiting for the man – he never showed

where are you
Stinkface Joe?
it’s 30 below
Joe…

top hat top hat top hat top hat
Joe? Joe? Joe? Joe?


Notes

The Harvey Dog words & sounds creation. “Stinkface Joe” is a conglomeration of the homeless people I have encountered. As a society, we need to do more for those in need.
