Henry – Live At The Button Factory

Posted on 1 May 2019

If you are a longtime fan you’ve probably heard a few versions of this throughout the years. It’s one of those songs that I may not play for a long time and then when I give it a blast it’s like a long lost friend. It felt right putting it on my latest E.P. and I’m very happy with the that version and this one from the Button Factory also.

Thanks again to the great bunch of people were involved in shooting and editing it and for Stephen James Smith who organized the evening.

Henry Lyrics

HENRY was a boy, who lived in school,He faked to make all the teachers drool,He tried so hard to please them, It wasn’t good, For no one helped him to stretch his mind, He was born at the wrong time, His thoughts were full of blood, Teachers didn’t teach what they should. He said, “All the dreams in my life Seem so far from me, I’ve gotta get away, I’m gonna get away, I’ve got to get away from here!” HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool. HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool You’re not somebody else’s fool. Well HENRY had a girl within this school, She was lovely, she was cool, He tried so hard to please her, It wasn’t good, For she had been known to run, jump and fly, To leave him on the ground with a jealous sigh, She loved like a river in flood, He was left to wallow in the mud. He said, “All the dreams in my life, Seem so far from me, I gotta get away, I’m gonna get away, I’ve got to get away from here!” HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool. HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool. So Henry got the call to fight a war Like his father years before, His country needed bodies It wasn’t good Who will care if he lives or dies? He’s a hero to his own demise, He’d come back if he could, But he lies dead in red mud He said, “All the dreams in my life, Seem so far from me, I gotta get away, I’m gonna get away, And I’ve got to get away from here! Got to get away from here!” HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool. HENRY, HENRY, What are you gonna do? Don’t spend your life feeling like Somebody else’s fool, Cause you’re not somebody else’s fool. © 2007 Enda Reilly
