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

The sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil


[Chorus]

                         G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her

Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her


[Verse 2]

            F#
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
                   A#m             C#
It's just a lot of stupid, stupid signs
F#        C#
Tell heeeeeeeer
F#                       C#                                   F#
Tell her she can kiss my ass then laugh and say that you were only kidding
                               C#                             D#
That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me


[Chorus]

                         G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m      C#   Fm
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her


[Verse 3]

F#
Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me
   C#                                        F#
Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial
                                         A#m        C#
A can of beans or black-eyed peas, some Nescafe and ice
   F#                              C#                  D#
A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading from Doctor Seuss


[Chorus]

                        G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m      C#   Fm
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her


[Bridge]

Cm                                A#m                           Cm
   The cat in the hat came back, wreaked a lot of havoc on the way
                                 A#m
Always had a smile and a reason to pretend
               Cm                               A#m                  C#
But their world has flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream
               Fm
The sidewinder sleeps on his back


[Chorus]

D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                   G#                                 A#m     C#    Fm
I can always sleep standing up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                   G#                                 A#m     C#    Fm
I can always sleep standing up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                       G#                                  A#m
Call me when you try to wake her up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                   G#                                 A#m
I can always sleep standing up, call me when you try to wake her
D#                   G#                                 A#m
I can always sleep standing up, call me when you try to wake her
             C#              Fm      D#
We've got to moogie, moogie, move on this one
