Hip Priest
– The Fall

Lyrics

He’s not appreciated.
He’s not appreciated.
He’s not appreciated.

Drink the long draught, Dan,
for the Hip Priest.

I said drink the long draught, Dan,
for the Hip Priest!

He’s not appreciated
He’s not appreciated

White collar hits motorway services
It’s the Hip Priest
From the eyes he can see, they know
It’s the Hip Priest

He’s not appreciated.
It’s purple psychology.
Not just an old lady’s.

That’s hip hip hip hip hit hit hit Hip Priest
That’s hip hip hip hip hit hit hit Hip Priest
And he’s gonna make an appearance.
He’s gonna make an appearance.

Was shown in a freakshow early on.
And drunk from small brown bottles since I was so long.

‘Cause I’m a Hip Priest
‘Cause I’m a Hip Priest
People only need me when they’re down and gone to seed.
‘Cause I’m a Hip Priest.
‘Cause I’m a Hip Priest.

It’s appreciation half won.
And they hate their allegiance to hip preacher one.
Hip Priest

I got my last clean dirty shirt outta the wardrobe
I got my last clean dirty shirt outta the wardrobe
And all the good people know

That’s hip hip hip hip hit hit hit Hip Priest
All the young groups know
All the young groups know
They can’t ever take advantage because I’m a Hip Priest.
I was as clean as a packet of chocolate chips.

That’s hip hip hip hip hit hit hit Hip Priest
And if the good people knew they would say
He’s not appreciated
He’s not appreciated

So drink the long draught, Dan,
For the Hip Priest
