Creeque Alley:The Mamas And The Papas.
#5 in UK and # 9 in USA in 1966.

#1.(4th fret)
F
John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
                               C7
Just to leave the folk music behind.
F
Zal and Denny workin' for a penny,
F
Tryin' to get a fish on the line.
     G
In a coffee house Sebastian sat,
    F
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
F
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher in L.A., 
                      F
You know where that's at.
                     D#              F
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#2.
F
Zally said, "Denny, you know there aren't many,
                                     C7
who can sing a song the way that you do."
F
Denny said, "Zally, golly, don't you think that I wish,
F
I could play guitar like you."
     G
In a coffee house they all sat..
    F
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
F
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher in L.A.,
                      F
you know where that's at.
                     D#              F
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#3.
F
When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swathmore,
                             C7
But she changed her mind one day.
F
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike,
 F
"Take me to New York right away."
     G
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps..
F
called John and Zal and that was the Mugwumps.
F
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher,
                                 F
but that's what they were aimin' at.
                     D#              F
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#4.
F
Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps..
                              C7
Don't you work as hard as you play.
F
Make up, break up, everything is shake up..
F
Guess it had to be that way.
G
Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful..
F
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin' very tuneful.
F
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire in L.A., 
                      F
You know where that's at.
                        D#              F
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#5.
F
Broke, busted, disgusted, agents can't be trusted,
                              C7
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea.
F
Cass can't make it..she says we'll have to fake it..
   F
We knew she'd come eventually.
G
Keepin' on the American Express card..
F
tent's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard.
F
Duffy's good vibrations and our imaginations,
                      F
Can't go on indefinitely.
                           D#              F
And California dreamin' is becomin' a reality... 


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
