1. The Abandoned Hospital Ship

VERSE 1

E                      
Well it took some time, 
                        Amaj7
Cause it’s a lot God, it's a bunch
                    A                   E
It's such a big, old, black golden buzz

VERSE 2

And yeah it took some help
                                   Amaj7
With lots of machines, the experts could tell
        A                            E
With their equipment pushed to the max...

VERSE 3

E                       
And sure it seems easy now 
                  Amaj7
But I tell you what we were perplexed
             A                        E
Finding the needle in needle's disguise

BRIDGE

A                           
And now that it's conceived, 
 E               F#m            B 
The station has all settled down,
              A              
And I'm sort of relieved,
  E   B                     E
And I'm getting over it now

Every mouth will eat you up, the king bug laughs

Sticking needles in your knees

Should make it easy

When the spaceship beams you up, boy, get drunk fast
E               A     A             E
Rubber bullet barn, titty-sucking calf
E                       F#                   D     D
Goats and roosters, bees and bugs, amoebas

CHORUS

              E                 F#
They beat you up, they make you bleed
         D                     E
Sticking needles in your knees
