This here is the place where I will be staying
      F
There isn't a number, you can call the pay phone
C                                 F
Let it ring a long long long long time

If I don't pick up, pick up, the sidewinder sleep, sleep, sleeps in a coil

There are scratches all around the coin slot
        C                                 F
Like a heartbeat baby trying to wake up
                          C
But this machine can only swallow money
                            F
you can't lay a patch by computer design
              Am                      C
Just a lot of stupid, stupid signs

F          C
Tell her
F                        C                                     F
Tell her she can kiss my ass, then laugh and say that you were only kidding.
                               Am                             C
That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me, me.

Today I need something more sub - s(tub) - sub - substantial.
                                          C
A can of beans or black-eyed peas, some Nescafe and ice
    F                             Am                   C
A Candy bar, a fallen star, or a reading from Doctor Suess

The cat in the hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way.

But their world has flat backgrounds and little need to sleep, but to dream
