VERSE
G   G/F#         Em7 
I'm counting out time
        G/D                 C
Got the whole thing down by numbers
          G/B              A 
All those numbers! Give me guidance
  D                G 
O Lord I need that now
    G/F#               Em7 
The day of judgement's come
            G/D                C
And you can bet that I've been resting
         G/B        A 
For this testing, digesting 
      D                G 
Every word the experts say


BRIDGE
          F       C/E  G/D 
Erogenous zones I love you
    Bb                    F/A
Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Found a girl I wanted to date
                                  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Thought I'd better get it straight
                                         G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Went to buy a book before it's too late.
                             G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G 
Don't leave nothing to fate
   Dm           Am          C 
I studied every line, every page in the book
Db                Db/B                 A 
Now, I've got the real thing here, I'm gonna take a look, take a look


VERSE
G   G/F#         Em7 
I'm counting out time
G/D                   C
Hoping it goes like I planned it
               G/B             
‘Cause I understand it
           A                  D
Look! I've found the hotspots, Figures one to nine 
G       G/F#         Em7 
  Still counting out time
       G/D           C
Got my finger on the button
           G/B            A 
"Don't say nothin' - just lie there still 
         D                      G 
And I'll get you turned on just fine." 


BRIDGE
          F       C/E  G/D 
Erogenous zones I love you
    Bb                    F/A
Without you, what would a poor boy do?

G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |

                        G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Touch and go with 1-6
                             G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Bit of trouble in zone No. 7
                                G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Gotta remember all of my tricks 
                                G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G |
There's heaven ahead in No. 11
        Dm         Am        C 
Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils
 Db        Db/B      A 
"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip
     A
To unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip. Whopee!"

VERSE
G   G/F#         Em7 
I'm counting out time 
  G/D            C
Reaction none to happy 
             G/B     
Please don't slap me 
      A                        D                     G 
I'm a red blooded male and the book said I could not fail 
    G/F#         Em7 
I'm counting out time 
      G/D        C
I got unexpected distress 
        G/B 
From my mistress 
            A                   D                G 
I'll get my money back from the bookstore right away 

BRIDGE (+ coda)
          F       C/E        G/D 
Erogenous zones I question you
    Bb                    F/A      G 
Without you, what would a poor boy do? 
    Bb                    F/A      G 
Without you, what would a poor boy do?
    Bb               F/A                 G       C
Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues
