[Verse 1]

C
Hey there people I'm Bobby Brown

Am
They say I'm the cutest boy in town

Dm7
My car is fast, my teeth are shiney

G
I tell all the girls they can kiss my hiney

(same chords progression)

Here I am at a famous school
I'm dressing sharp and I'm acting cool
I got a cheerleader here, wants to help with my paper
Let her do all the work and maybe later I'll rape her


[Chorus]

      F
   Oh God I am the american dream
     Em               Am
   I do not think I'm too extreme
             Dm7               G
   And I'm a handsome son of a bitch
   I'm gonna get a good job and be real rich
   (get a good, get a good, get a good, get a good job)


[Verse 2]
(verse 1 chords)

Women's liberation
Came creeping all across the nation
I tell you people, I was not ready
When I fucked this dyke by the name of Freddy

She made a little speach then
uuh, she tried to make me say when
She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick
I guess it's still hooked on but now it shoots too quick


[Chorus]
(same chords)

   Oh God I am the american dream
   But now I smell like vaseline
   I'm a miserable son of a bitch
   Am I a boy or a lady, I don't know which
     ( I wonder, wonder, I wonder, wonder)


[Verse 3]
(verse 1 chords)

So I went out and bought me a leisure suit
I jingle my change, but I'm still kinda cute
Got a job doing radio promo
And none of the jocks can even tell I'm a homo

Eventually me and a friend
Sort of drifted along into S&M
I can take about an hour on the tower of power
As long as I gets a little golden shower


[Chorus]
(same chords)

   Oh God, I am the american dream
   With a spindle up my butt 'till it makes me scream
   And I'll do anything to get ahead
   I lay awake nights saying "Thank you, Fred"


[Outro]

      F
   Oh God, oh God, I'm so fantastic
   Em                       Am
   Thanks to Freddie, I'm a sexual spastic
          F             G
   And my name is Bobby Brown

   Watch me now, I'm going down
          F             G
   And my name is Bobby Brown
   Watch me now, I'm going down


Simply repeat the chords for the verses and the refrain. The words in
brackets are originally for the background voices. If you sing them,
the most difficult point is the end of "..get a good job", because the
lyrics of the following verse start at the same time as "job".

If there are mistakes in the lyrics: I took them from the ftp.sunet.se
/pub/music/lyrics. Let them know.
I'm not so shure about the "Dm7" chords either, plain "Dm" might do just
fine. Corrections welcome, but don't send them to me, as I will be lea-
ving this account quite soon. Send them to Nevada instead, I'll be back
on the net some other time.

I was glad to find a tab for this, because this was the only one I could find. This is hard to sing along with (I am not talking about difficulty!!) because it's so funny. I feel like after every line I have to stop and laugh then continue. But after a while it's all good. This is a good tab man. Zappa would be proud.
PS: I think you are right about switching the Dm for the Dm7, it sounds much better that way.

Yup, it's Dm7 imo too. The tabs looks perfect.
