The Old Dope Peddler  Tom Lehrer

by Tom Lehrer
When the [C]shades of [Bb7]night are [A7]falling,
Comes a [Dm]fellow [G7]ev'ryone [C]knows,
It's the [C#dim]old dope [Dm]peddler,
C G7 C G7 c G7
Spreading joy wherever he goes.
Ev'ry [C]evening [Bb7]you will [A7]find him,
A-[Dm]round our [G7]neighbor[C]hood.
It's the [C#dim]old dope [Dm]peddler
C G7 c c7
Doing well by doing good.
He [F]gives the kids free [Em]samples,
Be-[Dm]cause he knows full [C]well
That to-[Dm]day's young [G7]innocent faces[A7]
Will be to-[D7]morrow's clientel[Dm7]e.[G7]
Here's a [C]cure for [Bb7]all your [A7]troubles,
Here's an [Dm]end to [G7]all dis-[C]tress.
It's the old [C#dim]dope p[Dm]eddler
With his [C]powdered [G7]ha-happi[C]ness.
