This song is the story of Spike--the legendary boy with a dog collar
on--
and his experience upon entering the Cypress Lounge, a little redneck
bar
in lovely Gainesville, Florida. 

Intro: Am
Am
	Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo
	Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo

Verse:
Am
	Oh look we got another one, just like the other ones

	Another bad ass, another trouble maker
G
	I'm scared, ain't you boys scared
	Am
	Oh, I wonder if he's gonna show us what bad is 
	F
	Boys we got a man with a dog collar on
	G                                    Am
	Think we oughta throw ol' Spike a bone

    Make me say
	Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo
	Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo

Verse 2:
Oh here's another misfit, another Jimmy Dean
Bet he's got a motorbike, whatta ya'll think
Bet if we be good, we'll get a ride on it
If he ain't to mad about the future
Maybe we oughta help him see, the future ain't what it used to be

Chorus: 
		    G                           Am
	Listen, hey Spike whatta you like
	G                           Am(2 measures)  D(2 measures)
	Hey Spike whatta you like

	C D D D C / D C C C D / C D D D C / D C C C D / Em(4 measures)
Am
Oh say 
Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo doo doo

Chorus:
Hey Spike whatta you like 
Hey Spike you're scarin' my wife
Hey Spike tell us about life
Can you tell me about life
I might need me a dog collar too boy
It might make me say, say Oow
I might say, might say...
(to get the full effect, you must end by panting like a dog)
