'When patterns are broken, new worlds can emerge'

  -- Tuli Kupferberg, as quoted in _Reader's Digest_ (4/87)

I don't know what was more of a sign that the 60s were over... Lawrence
Welk owning the Country Joe and the Fish catalog (Welk Music Group bought
Vanguard) or one of the Fugs being quoted in _Reader's Digest_...

                            "Dirty Old Man"
                       (E. Sanders - L. Goldbart)

Intro [6X]:

	E     (E7)    A  (G) E
	/ / /  / / /  / . /  /

Verse 1 (chorus echoes each line except as noted):

	 E                   A         E
	Hangin' out by the schoolyard gate
	 E                 A      E
	Lookin' up every dress I can
	Suckin' wind through my upper plate
	 E     A         E
	I'm a dirty old man (dirty old man, dirty old man)

	([1] you f*ckin' dirty old man   [2] disgusting!)

Verse 2:

	Handin' out joints to the kids at school
	Givin' out pictures and porn and pills
	Fillin' the front of my shirt with drool
	I'm a dirty old man (dirty old man, dirty old man)

	([2] ya prevert!)

Verse 3:

	Nervously wiggling my toes in my boots
	Communist literature in my hands
	Pinchin' all the bosoms I can
	I'm a dirty old man (dirty old man, dirty old man)

	([2] you!)

[instrumental break over verse chords]

Recitation (over two repeats of verse chords)

	[cackle] Hello, kiddies, here I am again on the ol' schoolyard!  I
	got *thrill pills* for all the little chickies, and I got *funny
	cigarettes* for all you boys [sniff], and I got *dirty pictures* for
	all of you together!  Well, I guess I better go, I see the campus
	cop's coming... I better split now.  Remember Leon Trotsky! [cackle]

[repeat verses 1-3]


	 A     B         E
	I'm a dirty old man

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
