Fall In Love With Him
by Harry Chapin

It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

More than my friend he's been my brother
He's said to me he's dreamed you'd be his wife,
When I think of you it's as just another lover
It's a simple choice of how you see your life.

A singer's just another traveling salesman
Another night, another town to sell my wares,
And the times that you'd be riding the excitement
Won't make up for times when no one would be there.

He's an open book--Why don't you read him?
He's already hooked--Why don't you lead him?
Take a look--You just might need him someday
In some way.
I'm the medicine man--I've started to mumble
A tight-rope walker--I've started to stumble.
Humpty Dumpty already tumbled down

Haven't you found
It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

You know I never thought I'd ever hear me saying this
Turning down a chance for touching something fine,
But I'd rather have you happy and completely his
Then have you waiting for me when I find the time.

He's an open book--Why don't you read him?
He's already hooked--Why don't you lead him?
Take a look--You just might need him someday
In some way.
And I'm the medicine man--I've started to mumble
A tight-rope walker--I've started to stumble.

Humpty Dumpty already tumbled down

Haven't you found
It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

(Fall in love with him)
You know that you could
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him)
It's just no good
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should.

"Oh, if a man tried to take his time on earth and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth, I wonder what would happen to this world?" -- Harry Chapin, 1942-1981.

The Latest Release

Sniper & Other Love Songs

 
[iTunes]

In 1972, Harry released Sniper & Other Love Songs. Thirty years would pass before the album would ever reach the CD format. Sniper was finally re-released in June, 2002.

Originally given a working title of Sweet City Suite, the album tells the story of various characters one might run into in a city. The album features the original studio versions of Chapin classics "A Better Place to Be" and "Circle." But perhaps more importantly (as those songs are already well-distributed on compilation CDs), the album features seemingly lost Chapin stories, including "And the Baby Never Cries," "Burning Herself," "Barefoot Boy," and "Woman Child."

Sniper is for the seasoned Chapin fan. New fans would do better to check out Greatest Stories Live. But for Chapin fans who have reached the level of the Dance Band on the Titanic album, this is the next step. Slightly over-produced and having a little of the "forced" feel that some of Harry's studio albums possess, this album does not capture the powerfully live Harry Chapin. Nonetheless, it captures Harry's great iconoclastic songwriting--Harry takes the story song to new heights here. But the album works best for those ready for it; don't buy it until you are ready to appreciate it!
