VERSE 1
Bm
 You walk into the room
A#aug
 With your pencil in your hand
D
 You see somebody naked
       E9
And you say, “Who is that man?”
G
 You try so hard
       Em
But you don’t understand
D                F#m
Just what you’ll say
             Bm
When you get home

D                     F#m    
 Because something is happening here
        Bm                 D 
And you don't know what it is, 
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones

VERSE 2
Bm
 You raise up your head
A#aug
 And you ask, “Is this where it is?”
D
 And somebody points to you and says
E9
  “It’s his”
G                                    
 And you say, “What’s mine?”
             Em 
And somebody else says, “Where what is?”
            D 
And you say, “Oh my God
     F#m        Bm 
Am I here all alone?”

   D             F#m    
But something is happening
        Bm                 D
But you don’t know what it is
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones

VERSE 3
Bm
 You hand in your ticket
A#aug
 And you go watch the geek
D
 Who immediately walks up to you
E9
  When he hears you speak
G                                    
 And says, “How does it feel
  Em
To be such a freak?”
                D
And you say, “Impossible”
      F#m          Bm
As he hands you a bone

   D             F#m    
And something is happening here
        Bm                 D
But you don’t know what it is
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones

MIDDLE 8
Bm
  You have many contacts
D
  Among the lumberjacks
   G
To get you facts
                               Bm
When someone attacks your imagination
Bm
  But nobody has any respect
D
  Anyway they already expect you
G
  To just give a check
   Em                           A       [G7]
To tax-deductible charity organizations


VERSE 4
Bm
 You’ve been with the professors
    A#aug
And they’ve all liked your looks
D
 With great lawyers you have
   E9
Discussed lepers and crooks
G
 You’ve been through all of
             Em
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
D                 F#m
 You’re very well read
          Bm
It’s well known

   D             F#m    
But something is happening here
        Bm                 D
But you don’t know what it is
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones

VERSE 5
         Bm                               A#aug
Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
[Abaug]
   And then he kneels
D
 He crosses himself
           E9
And then he clicks his high heels
        G
And without further notice
           Em
He asks you how it feels
              D                   F#m
And he says, “Here is your throat back
               Bm
Thanks for the loan”

D                          F#m    
 And you know something is happening 
        Bm                 D
But you don’t know what it is
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones

VERSE 6
Bm
 Now you see this one-eyed midget
A#aug 
 Shouting the word “NOW”
D
 And you say, “For what reason?”
E9
 And he says, “How?”
G
 And you say, “What does this mean?”
               Em
And he screams back, “You’re a cow
D            F#m
Give me some milk
           Bm
Or else go home”

D                          F#m    
 And you know something is happening 
        Bm                 D
But you don’t know what it is
G               Bm
 Do you, Mister Jones

VERSE 7
          Bm
Well, you walk into the room
       A#aug 
Like a camel and then you frown
D
 You put your eyes in your pocket
         E9
And your nose on the ground
G
 There ought to be a law
 Em
Against you comin’ around
    D
You should be made
   F#m      Bm
To wear earphones

D                    F#m    
 ‘Cause something is happening
        Bm                   D
But you don’t know what it is
G              Bm
Do you, Mister Jones
