The Squirming Coil
~From: Eric Berman (ericbe@microsoft.com)

    G
The Squirming Coil of sunset
  F
I keep within my reach
      C
Tried yesterday to get away
    G
and hitchhiked to the beach

G
I saw Satan on the beach
F
trying to catch a ray
   C
He wasn't quite the speed of light
        G
and the squirming coil
        Fmaj7    C            G
it got away....       It got away (4x)

Bb
The muscles flex the mother's ring
    Fm7
She fastens children to her king
    Bb
and sends him down the crooked street
     Fm7
When he returns, the birth's complete

Bb
Jimmy holds the Tannis root
    Fm7
The forest's tasty nectar shoot
    Bb
The sun tips off the monarch's suit
     Fm7
from sequined sash to shiny boot

     Bbm
"I'd like to lick the coil some day
     Gb
Like Iccarus, who had to pay
     Ab
with melting wax and feathers brown
   Bbm
He tasted it on his way down"

Stun the puppy!
Burn the whale!
Gb
Bark a scruff and go to jail!
Ab
Forge the coin and lick the stamp!
Bb
Little Jimmy's off to camp
