I'd been playing football with the youngsters-

Johnson, please don't dramatize.
                        D9  D11    G           D7  
"And you can't even spell 'salacious'!"
Cmaj7    Am7          Bm7   
In a caravette with such a pretty widow,

  When she's someone's daughter."

Horse chimes - so stupid and so mean.
G Edim         D                D7
On the offensive, all wolf-whistle and jeans.
Cmaj7             D7                   
Horse chimes-they neigh, they never bell;
G             Edim       D7         D9   Fdim 
All straw and piss, they never kiss but tell.

And you won't say itthat we're to blame.
D7   Cmaj7
And I must change.

G   D7

There is a saying tailor-made for her:
    C     D7      G
She's the apple of your eye.
   D9  D11   G          D7
"Lord, don't smother her in     soapy feelings."
Cmaj7   Am7     Bm7
You buy a pedestal only to rest it
C    D7   G
In a wheelchair.
                       D9  D11       G       D7
"Beauty can't be beauty     till it's dying."
Cmaj7       Am7    Bm7
And I think I'll die unless I kiss you
C          D7     G
Please don't murder me.
  D9  D11     G          D
"Hark, I hear the ghost of     feeling leaving,
F         Fmaj7   
  And you know what pushed her!"
