(D/B means A D chord with A B as the bass-note)

Verse 1:

D		D/B
Driving on the lawn
Em		 A7
Sleeping on the roof
Gm		 C	F Fsus4 F
Drinking all the alcohol
Gm	C
All the kids from school
	A	     Dm
Will be naked in the pool
	  Gm		C	   F	A
While our parents are on Fire Island

Verse 2 (same chords):

Cranking up the tunes
'Til the windows break
Feeding chocolate to the dog
Jumping on the couch
'Til the feathers all come out
While our parents are on Fire Island (Don't play the last A chord)


Gm		    C
We're old enough by now
   F			Bb (then play an A bass note to get the bass line)
To take care of each other
Gm		 C
We don't need no babysitter
F	 (A)	 Bb (then play an A bass note to get the bass line)
We don't need no father or mother
Gm		    C
We're old enough by now
F		    Bb
Don't worry 'bout a thing
Don't you remember
Last December
         Bb			Gm	C	
When you went to Steamboat Springs?

Solo (same chords as verse)

Verse 3: (same chords as verse 1 and 2)
Driving on the lawn
Sleeping on the roof
Drinking all the alcohol
All the kids from school
Will be naked in the pool
While our parents are on Fire Island (end with an F)

notes: I found the existing tab-version of this song not too accurate, 
so I decided I'd make this one. It's in key.
Have fun with it. For comments of errors, mail me (mekkema@yahoo.com).
