This song is by Shawn Phillips and appears on the album Do You Wonder (1975).

Phillips

He got trouble, he got strife
He got difficulty in his life
He got trouble walkin' on his toes
And I think there's something wrong with his nose

And he don't know where he's goin'
And he don't care where he's been
But now he knows he's alive givin' out with his jive
And he's makin' me pale with his sad little tale about love

He got women, he got wine
He got everything to make him feel fine
He got everything this world can give
But he still don't know how to wake up and live

And he don't know where he's goin'
And he don't care where he's been
But now he knows he's alive givin' out with his jive
And he's makin' me pale with his sad little tale about love

'Cause he be too black and too proud
Or too white and too loud
He be too low or too high
The difference is he's frightened and he don't know how to try

And he don't know where he's goin'
And he don't care where he's been
But now he knows he's alive givin' out with his jive
And he's makin' me pale with his sad little tale about love
