[Verse 1]
      G   Bm/F#           Em    Em7/D       C     Em/B      D#dim
How sweet------ to be an idiot,       as harmless...   as a cloud,
     Em                B     Am          D4   D
Too small to hide the sun, almost poking fun,
        G        Bm/F#   Em       Em7/D  Am        D4    D
At the warm, but inse - cure, un - tidy crowd!  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 2]
      G   Bm/F#           Em    Em7/D      C   Em/B            D#dim
How sweet------ to be an idiot,       and dip...    my brain in joy,
            Em           B             Am           D4   D
Children laughing at my back, with no fear of at - tack,
    G        Bm/F#    Em    Em7/D      Am       D4    D
As much re - tali - ation...      as a toy!  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
      G    Bm/F#            Em    D
How sweet------  to be an idiot,
      G    Fadd9    C/E  Cm/D#      D4            D
How sweet!        |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  | /_/ /_/ /_/ /_/ |

Fee - fi - fo - fum, I smell the blood of an asylum!

   (Blood of an asylum?      But, mother, I'm playing so beautifully!
                       Fmaj7
Ha - ha!  Listen!  Ha - ha!)

Fee - fi - fo - fum, I smell the blood of an asylum!


[Verse 5]
     Am                   Am/G
Hey, you!  You're such a pedant,
       D9/F#                  Fmaj7
You've got as much brain as a dead ant,
    E
As much imagination as a caravan site...
             D               D7
But I still love you, still love you, oo, oo----!

How sweet!        |  /  /  /  /  |      How-----  sweet------!
