Eb            Ab

              Eb                  Ab
I starred in every high school play
           Eb               Ab
Blew every drama teacher away
        Eb               Ab              Eb      Ab
I graduated first in my class at Juilliard
           Eb                 Ab
Took every acting workshop I could
      Eb              Ab
And I dreamed of Hollywood
         Eb          Ab                   Eb
While I read my Uta Hagen and studied the Bard

Ab Db

         Eb                 Ab   Db
Hit the boards and paid my dues
            Eb            Ab    Db
And got phenomenal rave reviews
           Eb               Ab          Db      Eb      Ab
I knew the world was gonna love me, without a doubt

I was sure that Tarantino would be callin' me on the phone
      Eb                           Ab      Db
Annie Leibovitz would shoot me for Rolling Stone
        Eb                   Ab
But the years have come and gone
Ab
And I'm sorry to say that's not the way that it's all worked out


      Eb   Bb            Ab           Eb
I'm a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

And every time it's the same
Cm                            Gm
Look at those hippos, they're wigglin' their ears
Ab                             Bb
Just like they've done for the last fifty years
          Eb           Bb                Ab        Eb
Now I'm laughin' at my own jokes but I'm cryin' inside

'Cause I'm workin' on the Jungle Cruise ride


Eb  Ab

        Eb                     Ab
Oh, the critics, they used to say
          Eb        Ab
I was the new Olivier
            Eb                Ab                Eb      Ab    Db
Thought I'd be the toast of Sundance or maybe Cannes
              Eb               Ab Db
Aw, but don't bother tryin' to IMDb me
     Eb                  Ab       Db
The only place you might possibly see me
   Eb                  Ab
Is ridin' my little boat around Adventureland
Ab
It ain't exactly what I planned

          Eb   Bb            Ab           Eb

I would've killed if I'd been in "Speed The Plow"
Ab                                 Bb
But what's the difference, that's all behind me now
           Eb           Bb          Ab              Eb
'Cause I'm payin' the rent and I'm swallowin' my pride
         Ab            Bb            Eb
And I'm workin' on the Jungle Cruise ride


F#                     Ab
I should be there on Broadway
              Db       Fm          Bbm
Knockin' 'em dead in "Twelve Angry Men"
F#                      Ab
  But instead I'm here tellin' these lame jokes
  Bb
Again and again and again and again and again and again and again

Cm                         Gm
I shoulda listened when my grandfather said
Ab                      Bb
"Why don't you major in business instead?"
       Eb              Bb             Ab              Eb
Now my hopes have all vanished and my dreams have all died

Somebody shoot me 'cause I'm bored to tears
       Eb           Bb         Ab            Eb
Always said I'd be famous... I guess that I lied

'Cause I'm workin' on the Jungle Cruise ride
