INTRO: G C D

VERSE 1:
G                g C               c
Up in the morning, work like a dog
     D                  d        C'   B'   G'
It's better than sittin', like a bump on a log
G                    g    C                c
Mind all your manners, be quiet as a mouse
    D                    d           C'  B'   G'
Someday you'll own a home, that's as big as a house
G             g    C                 c
I know a fella, he eats like a horse
D                   d           C'  B'   G'
Knocks his old balls, round the old golf course
G                      g         C                c
You oughta see his wife, she's a cute little dish
    D                    d     C'     B'     G'
She smokes like a chimney, and drinks like a fish

I wish I had a woman, that made my knees knock
                         g    C               c
She'd sing like an angel, and eat like a bird
    D                 d           C'    B'     G'
And if I wrote a song, she'd know every single word

                           g         C                 c
Cause if you lie like a rug, and you don't give a damn
     D             d    C'    B'   G'
Your never gonna be, as happy as a clam
                  g C                      c
Sitting in a hotel, trying to write a song
   D                    d        C'  B' G'
My head is just as empty, as the day is long
                        g   C                          c
Why it's clear as a bell, I should have gone to school
       D             d            C'       B'   G'
