Artist: They Might Be Giants
Song: Hey Mr. Dj, I thought you said we had a deal
Album: Miscellaneous T

Intro: A  E  D  (x2) 

Verse 1:
          A             E             D
I could never sleep my way to the top
            A                  E               D
'Cause my alarm clock always wakes me right up
                A                E           D
And since my options had been whittled away
              B                   E
I struck a bargain with my radio DJ
             A                E            D
I said I'd like this song to be number one
                      A             E               D
He said "I'd really really like to help you my son"
             A                E                D
And then I knew that I would have him to thank
             B                              E
Because he asked me how much I had in the bank

Pre Chorus:
             A         E       D
He said to think long term investment and
               F#                   D
That all the others had forgiven themselves
             A    E             D
He said the net reward would justify
       F#                                D
The colossal mess they'd made of their lives

Verse 2:
He said the record wouldn't have to be hot
And no one ever seemed to care if it's not
It would depend on something else that I've got
And that the other ones who'd given it a shot
Had seen a modest sum grow geometrically
And then they had forgiven themselves
Because the net reward had justified
The colossal mess they'd made of their lives

Chorus:
 A       E  F#             E       D     E     
Hey Mr. DJ, I thought you said we had a deal
    A      E          D               F#      E                  F#       
I thought you said, "You scratch my back and I'll scratch your record"
         D                 E     A
And I thought you said we had a deal

Verse 3:
Well, I told you about the world (its address)
I wonder when they're gonna clean up the mess
You know the rabid child is still tuning in
Chess piece face's patience must be wearing thin
Because they haven't played this song on the air
Not that anyone but me even cared
And the Disk Jockey has moved out of town
The district courthouse says he's nowhere to be found

Pre Chorus:
Had seen a modest sum grow geometrically and
Then they had forgiven themslves
Because the net reward had justified 
the colossial mess they'd made of their lives

Chorus:
Hey Mr. DJ, I thought you said we had a deal
I thought you said, "You scratch my back and I'll scratch your record"
And I thought you said we had a deal 

Outro: A  E  D ( Over and over )

Those A-chords should be A-minors.

I mean to say the F#s should be Eminors. I had switched keys...
