Intro:

(hey Smooth Steve, where's my skinny boy decaffe latte no
foam?) Hi this is Smooth Steve from K-Jazz welcome to "Java the Hut."
Tonight we got a special guest a young man from? (where ya from?)
He's playin' a new song, here we go.

	Thanks Smooth Steve. Hey this is a song about a book I read
once about the "so called" apparent evils of Rock and Roll.  And I
wrote this little song about it. Uh, I guess I'd just like to thank,
uh, thank you all for commin' out and sing this song tonight. Here it
goes.

I'm sorry but your gonna have to listen to the song to get the
strumming pattern cuz I cant show you here.
E                  E        G                    G
Once I read a book,	and this is what it said,
          A               A  E				      E
"If your music has a beat, 	then your gonna wind up dead.
   E                            G
It doesn't really matter if its Christian or not,
        A                            A
If its syncopated rhythm then your soul is gonna rot."
E(slide)A                       A(slide)E
	   And this book was called	   "AH YOUR GONNA BURN"
E(slide)A                       A(slide)E	                E(silence)E
    	   And in the second chapter,	    I went on to learn.
E        G               A              E
Take two houseplants and put 'em to the test,
        E                G                    A                  E
Set 'em both in front of speakers and let the music do the rest.
     E                 G           A                    E
The first one you play Mozart or somethin' lovely like that,
    E                        G              A          E
The second one you play that Petra and that Megadeath.
(quad. strum E)
Doesn't really matter what kind of rock it is.
      E          G                    A                  E
So I took my two houseplants and I presented them to the test.

        E                 G                  A            E
Set 'em both in front of speakers and let the music do the rest.
  E             G            A                 E
I powered up my Pioneers and let the music roar.
E              G               A              E   (quad. strum E)
But twenty minutes later someone's knocking at my door.
 (thump your guitar if you have an acoustic)
  E                EE E    G
I opened up my door, and there my neighbour stood.
          A                              E
He said, "Man I'd like to get some sleep;    if ya really think I

could."
         E              G                A
I said, "Man, can't you see here I got a moral dilemma that I have
 E
Gotta get clear."
          E                                         G
He said, "What kinda moral dilemma could you have at this time of
                  A                     E
Night that would make me so angry that I just wanna fight?"
(here's a tip, save you a couplea bux, don't break anything just imagine
breaking something.)
             E                G                            A
Sorry, so I pointed to a page, in that open book, it had a picture of
                           E
A potted plant and I said,   "go have a look."    And he read?
E         G               A              E
Take two house plants and put em' to the test,
        E                G                   A            E
Set em' both in front of speakers and let the music do the rest.
    E                  G            A                   E
The first one you play Mozart or something lovely like that,
    E                        G              A             E
The second one you play that Petra and that Megadeath.

Doesn't really matter what kind of rock it is.

E-------------------------------------------------0-|-------|This may sound
B------------------0----0---0---3----------2------0-|-------|wrong or maybe

D-2-2-2---2----2------------------0----0----------2-|-------|that?s what it
A-------------------------------------------------2-|-------|sounds like to
E-------------------------------------------------0-|-------|     me.
 E                               G                              A
"First of all," he said, "that's Vogner that your playin', I've never
                        E                      E(silence)E
heard of Petra and isn't Megadeath all dead?"
     E           G             A                  E
And secondly and thatically he asked me what's the sense?
   E                G                          A
Of hangin' out with houseplants he said, "hey I live right across the
e
fence."

And I thought to myself, you know that?s a good point.
     E           G                 A               E
So I took my two houseplants and I put em' both outside,
    E         G            A              E
And me and my neighbour we went out for a drive.

   E            G                   A             E
We talked about all the things that really matter most.
     E                 G             A                  E
Like life and love and happiness and then the Holy Ghost.
 E       G        A       E
(Naaaaah Naaaaaah Naaaaah Naaaaah)
   E          G               A              E
So now my two houseplants can sit out in the sun,
    E         G                  A              E
And as for my neighbour well our friendship has become,
  E            G                 A                 E
A meaningful relationship that?s headed strait for heaven.
    E             G                                A
But as for now we like to sit around and listen to Audio Adrenaline,
E                  E!E!E!E!E!E!E! (just play hard until you get tired
CRANKED TO ELEVEN!

boy decaffe latte no-foam?)
