And the sCign said "LGong-haired freaky peopleD need not appGly" So DI tucked my hair up Aunder my hat, and I wGent in to ask him wAhy Bm He said "You look like a Bm/Afine, upstanding young Emman, I think you'llG6/A do" So I tDook off my hat and said "ImAagine that! Heh, Gme workin' for yAou!" Whoa, sDign sign Ceverywhere a sGign BlDockin' out the scenery, breGakin' my mind DDo this, don't do tAhat, can't you read the sC/Gign? D And the sCign said anybody cGaught trespassin'D would be shot out of sGight So I juDmped on the fence and I yeAlled at the house "Hey,G what gives you the rAight? You put up a fence to keep me out but to keep Mother Nature in, If God was here he'd tell you to your face, "Man you're some kind of sinner!" Now hAey there mister can't you read? You gGotta have a shirt and tDie to get a seat You can't even watch, no yAou can't even YGou ain't supposed to Dbe here........ SCign said you gGot to have a membership cDard to get insGide...Uhhh! And the sCign said "EGverybody welcome, come Din, kneel down and pGray" But when they paDssed around the plate and they eAmptied it all I dGidn't have a penny to pAay So I Bmgot me a pen and a Bm/Apaper, and I mEmade up my own little G6/Asign I said "ThDank you Lord for thAinkin' about me, I'm alGive and doin' fiAne!" >Here you are: > >Signs >CHORUS >D C G >Signs, signs, everywhere signs >D C G >Blockin' up the scenery, messin' my mind >A G >Do this, don't do that > C >Can't you read the signs In the meantime, the chorus goes DSigns, signs, Ceverywhere Gsigns DBlockin' up the scenery,C messinG' my mind D A <<< different Do this, don't do that Can't you read theC signs Cheers, Jason -- Covered by Tesla on their Five Man Acoustical Jam album... uncreditted I might add... From memory, C/F/G I think, insert choruses as applicable: And the sign said anyone caught trespassin will be shot on site so I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house HEY! What gives you the right? To put up a fence to shut me out or to shut mother nature in If god was here he'd tell it to your face Man, your some kind of sinner! And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply. So I tucked up my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him why! He said you look like a fine outstanding young man I think you do. So I took off my hat and said imagine that! HAH! Me! Working for you! Signs sign, every signs Blocking out the scenery Breaking my mind Do this-do that Don't do that! Cant you read the signs... (not sure about that line) Now see here mister cantcha read? Ya got to have shirt and tie to get a seat! You can't even watch no you can't eat. You ain't supposed to be hear! And the sign said everyone welcome come in, kneel now and pray But when they passed round the plate at the end of it all I didn't have a penny to pay! So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign It says thank you lord for thinkin bout me I'm alive and doin fine.
