(See Note 1)
G
In yellow shoes I get the blues

Though I walk the street with my plastic feet
G#
With blue velvet trousers make me feel pink

There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
A
In my paisley shirt I look a jerk

And my turquoise waistcoat is quite outta sight
Bb
But oh, oh, my haircut looks so fair
B
Vegetable Man, how are you?


G
So I've change my gear and I find my knees

And I cover them up with the latest cut
G#
And my pants and socks, a vault in a box

It don't take long for my dyed old socks (in the live version, Syd says "Nylon socks")
A
The watch, black watch, my watch with a black face

And a date in a little hole
Bb
And all the lot, it's what I got, it's what I wear

It's what you see, it must be me, it's what I am!
B
Vegetable Man

B A G F# B D B
Ahhh, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, haaa

B A G F# B D B
Ahhh, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, haaa

Ahhh...aaa


Eb C#
I've been looking all over the place 
A G#
for a place for me.
G# A B E G# A A B E
But it ain't anywhere, it just ain't anywhere

(See Note 3)
E
Vegetable Man, Vegetable Man

Vegetable Man, Vegetable Man

He's the kind of fellow you just gotta
A
See him if ya can
