	Hey boy, you better bring the chick around
	Em9                         A13

Verse 2:

	Nothin' you can't handle, nothin' you ain't got
	Put your money on the table and drive it off the lot
	Turn on that old lovelight, turn a maybe to a yes
	Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess
	Hey son, you better get on back to town
	Face the sad old truth, the dirty lowdown
	(Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
	Put those ideas in your head
	(Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)

Verse 3:

	You ain't got to be bad, got to be cold
	This dog-eat-dog business is surely gettin' old
	Got to have a jones for this, jones for that
	This runnin' with the joneses, boy, it just ain't where it's at
	You gonna come back around
	To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown
	(Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
	Got you thinkin' like that
	(Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)

What chords! They sound awesome! Some compression and wah would definitely heighten their sound! Excellent song and tab!
