[Verse 1]
A               
I'm sailing the seas of red wine
A                  
I'm strumming this nonsense tune
A                   
Addin' my voice to a rebel serenade
A                    
Echoin' off a waxin' moon

[intro x2] 

[Verse 2]
A                     
And I've crumpled our paper captain
A                      
Now who will lead this swarthy crew?
A                                         
Tear the teeth off the gears, keep 'em as souvenirs, boys!
A                          
The world needs a few good mutineers now

[Chorus]
A                        F#      E
Sometimes I slumber on a bed of roses
F#                       E     A
Sometimes I crash in the weeds
A                      F#       E
One day a bowl full of cherries
              F# 
One night I'm suckin' on lemons and spittin' out the seeds

[repeat intro] all 4 with fill

[Verse 3]
A                                     
I am the fat, native, skinny-dippin', semi-professional tourist
A                   
A gold watch at the bottom of the sea
A                          
Tis time I depose of those petty tyrants
A                  
One on the throne, one inside me

[Chorus]
A                        F#      E
Sometimes I slumber on a bed of roses
F#                       E     A
Sometimes I crash in the weeds
A                      F#       E
One day a bowl full of cherries
              F# F#
One night I'm suckin' on lemons and spittin' out the seeds

[Verse 4]
A                                  
Bring on the change. Let's keep it simple now
A                                  
Don't confuse your wants with your needs
A                           
Believe in love (love!), forsake your greed 
A                                
And give away what you want to receive
"what you say?"
A                            
Give away what you want to receive
"what you say?"
A                            
Give away what you want to receive
"what you say?"
A                            
Give away what you want to receive

[Chorus]
A                        F#      E
Sometimes I slumber on a bed of roses
F#                       E     A
Sometimes I crash in the weeds
A                      F#       E
One day a bowl full of cherries
              F# F#      E          A  
One night I'm suckin' on lemons and spittin' out the seeds

A                        F#      E
Yeah, Sometimes I slumber on a bed of roses
F#                       E     A
Sometimes I crash in the weeds
A                      F#       E
One day a bowl full of cherries
              F# F#      E 
One night I'm suckin' on lemons and spittin' out the seeds
