The Kinks - Mr. Pleasant
Tekst en muziek: Ray Davies
(1967)






Oh Mr. Pleasant, how is Mrs. Pleasant
I hope the world is treating you right
And your head’s in the air
And you’re feeling so proud
’Cause you’re such a success
And the whole wide world is on your side
Hey hey
How are you today



People say: “Mr. Pleasant is good
Mr. Pleasant is kind
Mr. Pleasant’s okay”
Mr. Pleasant don’t mind
As long as Mr. Pleasant’s all right
Hey hey
How are you today



How’s your father, how’s your mother
How’s your sister, how’s your brother
How’s your brand new limousine
Twenty-four inch TV screen
Did you like prosperity
More than you liked poverty
Life is easier, so much easier
Life is easier now



Oh Mr. Pleasant, how is Mrs. Pleasant
Did you know she was flirting around
With another young man
And he’s taking her out
When you have to work late
And it’s not so pleasant after all
Hey hey
How are you today



People say: ”Mr. Pleasant is good
Mr. Pleasant is kind
Mr. Pleasant’s okay”
Mr. Pleasant don’t mind
As long as Mr. Pleasant’s all right
Hey hey
How are you today



Mr. Pleasant is good
Mr. Pleasant is kind
Mr. Pleasant’s okay



Hey hey
How are you today
