[Verse 1]

A                                                          
I fell asleep on the couch last night, woke up with the TV on
A
There was a woman in tight cotton exercise shorts
A
And a big plastic machine she was climbing on
A
She said "The Aba-cycle guarantees ten inches off your waist
A                                  D
And 50 pounds in just 3 minutes a day."
          A
I went to bed knowing the revolution had been postponed
    D               E7   A
And everything was okay


[Chorus]

        A               D       A
You can try it, you can buy it, it'll help you in bed
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one
      A             D                A
I forget the guy's name but I know somebody said
A            E7         A    D    A            E7        A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 2]

A                                                                         
I switched the channels and there was Evel Knievel 
A
I thought that he was dead
A
I found myself sitting there quietly, hanging on every word he said
A
"Now folks, the stimulator removes all pain from your life.
A
And the best day of your life will be when you try this little device out."
A
The camera moved in as he said, "Now, let me tell you ladies and gentlemen,
A
Pain is something old Evel knows a little about"


[Chorus]

        A               D       A
You can buy it, you can try it, go right ahead
            E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one.
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7         A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 3]

A
And a fellow comes on shouting "Free haircuts for life!"
A
Somehow you cut your hair with a vacuum cleaner
A
And then I switched the channels and there was Dionne Warwick 
A
Communing with her psychic friends
A
I watched for hours, taking warmth, comfort, and pleasure
A                        D
In the things that I despise
A
Touched by how much they needed me
         D           E7               A
And that happy desperation in their eyes


[Chorus]


        A               D              A
You can buy it, you can try it, it'll help you in bed.
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one.
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7         A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 4]

A                                                                D
So, to Dionne, Cher, and all my late-night friends, I drink to your health
A
And Tony Little, America's personal trainer, please kill yourself
A
Now I've sold a few things myself in my time, and by the way folks,
A                                     D
There's some t-shirts on your way outside
A
Well, last night I dreamed of lipstick and tight little cotton shorts
A
"Harder, faster", she whispered in my ear.
A
"One, two, three, four, five"
A      E7    A     D     A    E7    A
Ride, sally ride, girl, ride sally ride.


[Chorus]

        A               D              A
You can buy it, you can try it, it'll help you in bed.
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7        A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come
