Lucy Kaplanski   My Name Joe   written by  David Massengill

F
Joe threw another tantrum
   Bb
He could not to be understood
   Eb              Bb
He cries like baby Samson
    F
His English is not good

Joe's boss of the kitchen
           Bb
But on the outside he knows
Eb               Bb
Low man on  the totem's
        F
Wearing giveaway clothes

Joe he  fights the good fight
   Bb
He wears a white uniform
    Eb              Bb
The waiters are all artists
    F
Out chasing unicorns

Joe works fourteen hours
      Bb
After ten he starts to booze
        Eb         Bb
He gets very sentimental
      F
Oh he sings the buddah blues
Eb Bb               F
He sings the buddah blues
        Bb           Eb
My name Joe  my name Joe
      Bb           Eb  Bb    Eb  Bb
There is a king in Thailand
Eb     F         Eb  Bb      Eb  Bb
And he plays the jazz drum
Bb                Eb      Bb Eb  Bb
He has a fine and healthy son
Eb F      Eb      Bb
Oh no I'm not the one
Eb Bb   F
My name Joe
F
On the wall by the time clock
      Bb
Joe's beaming from a photograph
        Eb       Bb
Someone drew across his face
    F
The waiters began to laugh

Joe picked up a hatchet
       Bb
And he tenderized the wall
    Eb          Bb
And when he got through
                  F
Time clock wasn't punching anymore

The waiters ran for cover
          Bb
The maitre d' began to lisp
    Eb               Bb
The drunkard in the corner
         F
Said his lettuce was not crisp

Owner called immigration
             Bb
Said there's someone you should know
         Eb     Bb
He's an illegal alien
      F
And I think his name is Joe
Eb   Bb                F
Oh I know his name is Joe
        Bb           Eb
My name Joe  my name Joe
      Bb           Eb  Bb    Eb  Bb
There is a king in Thailand
Eb     F         Eb  Bb      Eb  Bb
And he plays the jazz drum
Bb                Eb      Bb Eb  Bb
He has a fine and healthy son
Eb F      Eb      Bb
Oh no I'm not the one
Eb Bb   F
My name Joe
F
Came the man from immigration
          Bb
Said I've got a job to do
     Eb                  Bb
Easy questions easy answers
     F
Just point  me to the kitchen crew

He asked Leroy from Harlem
         Bb
He asked Cisco from Mexico
              Eb               Bb
He asked the white trash from Tennessee
        F
Thet all said my name Joe

My name Joe  my name Joe
F
The maitre d' he sputtered
            Bb
The kitchen crew they roared
     Eb               Bb
And while they were arguing
    F
Joe slipped out the back door

On the beach Joe tries to listen
        Bb
To the heartbeat of a whale
Eb                   Bb
How it echoes his own heartbeat
        F
And the distance he has sailed
Eb      Bb              F
Oh the distance he has sailed
        Bb           Eb
My name Joe  my name Joe
      Bb           Eb  Bb    Eb  Bb
There is a king in Thailand
Eb     F         Eb  Bb      Eb  Bb
And he plays the jazz drum
Bb                Eb      Bb Eb  Bb
He has a fine and healthy son
Eb F      Eb      Bb
Oh no I'm not the one
Eb Bb   F
My name Joe
