Cm Now everybody tells me you're the dog's best friend F I'm the cat's meow since I don't know when Cm I'm an instigator from a dead man's town F So when did the whole world turn upside down Cm When did you change your mind, when did you lose the juice F Now where'd you get your attitude Cm When did you give it away, what did the old man say F How many babies did you kick today Fm How many nights can the full moon shine A How many bottles of water can you turn to wine B When the blood has flowed against the tides of time Cm And the water flows forever Now I'm gonna build a boat, I'm gonna make it float 'Cause I'm setting the pace for a faraway place Gonna set the sail, gonna catch some wind And the big red sky's gonna be my only friend With a boat for two, just me and you You can be my teacher, I can teach you too Gonna try a few things that I've never done Maybe talk to the fishes, maybe have some fun Maybe shake my pale fist at the angry stars While I dance a jig under the eyes of Mars When we get to an island were the walls have a bend We can get down and dirty in our animal skins And I'll stand with my thing hanging out in the wind Where the water's sweet like honey

solo

I've been feeling a chill from the east wind blew It's been creeping up slow, have you felt it too? Did you notice the look? Have you felt the feel? Did it make you blush when the piggy squealed Have you heard what they say, did you read the news Said old man's coming home a-singin' them blues Gonna whack your fanny, gona tan you hide Make your ears turn red, make you run and cry How many children gonna lose their minds How many crying ghosts will be left behind When the dead start walking and the full moon shines... Now everybody scream to the heavens above And everybody dance to the sounds of love Won't you clack your teeth, won't you smack your hands Won't you dig your little heads right out of the sand Won't you jiggle your butt, won't you wave your arms Won't you look like you just came off of the farm Won't you stop your fighting for a second or two Won't you help your neighbor, won't you do your due Won't you taste the sugar, won't you eat that cake Won't you get your ugly mug right out of my face Won't you tell your brothers and your sisters tonight, That you tasted the water and the water was right Wont you taste the sugar, won't you dance the dance Won't you wake up please, come on out of your trance Everybody make believe that you've disappeared, for a second or two, Gonna feel so queer, and you left behind all your rage and fear
