COUNTING OUT TIME by Genesis
=================
written by Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett & Mike Rutherford
from the "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" album (1974)
chords by Piguinho (from Brazil)


Ab  Ab/G         Fm7 
I'm counting out time, 
        Ab/Eb               C#7+
Got the whole thing down by numbers. 
          Ab/C             Bb 
All those numbers! Give me guidance! 
  Eb7              Ab 
O Lord I need that now. 
    Ab/G               Fm7 
The day of judgement's come, 
            Ab/Eb              C#7+
And you can bet that I've been resting, 
          Ab/C      Bb 
for this testing, digesting every 
Eb7              Ab 
word the experts say. 

          F#      C#/F  Ab/Eb 
Erogenous zones I love  you. 
  B                       F#/Bb         Ab7
Without you, what would a poor boy do? 

Ab7 
Found a girl I wanted to date, 
Thought I'd better get it straight. 
Went to buy a book before it's too late. 
Don't leave nothing to fate. 

   Ab7/Eb       Bb7         C# 
I studied every line, every page in the book, 
D                 D/C                  Bb 
Now, I've got the real thing here, I'm gonna take a look, take a look. 

Ab  Ab/G         Fm7 
I'm counting out time, 
Ab/Eb                  C#7+
hoping it goes like I planned it, 
             Ab/C             
'cos I understand it. 
           Bb                  Eb7            Ab 
Look! I've found the hotspots, Figures one to nine. 
      Ab/G         Fm7 
still counting out time, 
       Ab/Eb         C#7+
got my finger on the button, 
           Ab/C           Bb 
"Don't say nothin' - just lie there still 
         Eb7                    Ab 
And I'll get you turned on just fine." 

          F#      C#/F Ab/Eb 
Erogenous zones I love you. 
  B                       F#/Bb          Ab7
Without you, what would a poor boy do? 

Ab7
Touch and go with 1-6. 
Bit of trouble in zone No. 7. 
Gotta remember all of my tricks. 
There's heaven ahead in No. 11! 

        Ab7/Eb     Bb7       C# 
Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils. 
 D         D/C       Bb 
"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip, 
to unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip. Whipee!" 

( Ab  Ab/G  Fm7  Ab/Eb  C#7+  Ab/C  Bb  Eb7  Ab ) 2x

Ab  Ab/G         Fm7 
I'm counting out time, 
  Ab/Eb          C#7+
reaction none to happy, 
              Ab/C     
Please don't slap me, 
      Bb                        Eb7                   Ab 
I'm a red blooded male  and the book said I could not fail. 
    Ab/G         Fm7 
I'm counting out time, 
       Ab/Eb         C#7+
I got unexpected distress 
        Ab/C 
from my mistress, 
            Bb                  Eb7              Ab 
I'll get my money back from the bookstore right away. 

           F#      C#/F     Ab/Eb 
Erongenous zones I question you
  B                       F#/Bb    Ab 
Without you, what would a poor boy do? 
  B                       F#/Bb    Ab 
Without you, what would a poor boy do?
  B                  F#/Bb               Ab    C#m 
Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues.

Lack of accuracy. The chords are just wrong, they do not match up at all with what's playing in the song. Not much else to say.
