The Boy Who Smelled Real Good

He was the Boy who smelled Real Good
They say he smelled like wood
Like of cedar or of pine

He was the Boy
Who smelled Real Good
He was the boy who smelled real Good

Strangers approached him
Everyday
Hiked from hundreds of
Miles away

They said, "What smells good?"
Is it you?
Is it you?
Left our lives behind to smell of you
Left our wives behind to smell of you!

He was the Boy
Who Smelled Real Good
They say he smelled like food
Like lamb roasting with thyme

He was the Boy
Who Smelled Real Good
He was the boy who smelled real good

Everybody gathered around him
In a big old pack
He had to kick 'em like a mule
Off his back

He said, "Go on back home now!"
You smell bad.
You smell so bad.
You smell me, but I only smell you.
I wouldn't say it
If it wasn't true.

He was the Boy
Who smelled real good
They say he smelled like fruit
Like a fresh-picked Clementine

He was the Boy
Who smelled real good
He was the boy who smelled...
Real good...
