  Yes! I'll tell you  everything you  need to be the next big thing; let's

Em (sim.)       Am             F#dim         
start in with a test of your intelligence and 

B7
zest for the counter-productive;

Em              Am             F#dim            B7
up and down and roundabout and out the back and keep your mouth shut tight!

Em             Am              F#dim             B7
The lights are staying out but no sweat, I've got aim like a Mack truck.

Em             Am             F#dim          B7 
Guess how many fingers? Okay! Guess how many more I can stick there?

Em                     Am            F#dim                B7
Guess right gets the toaster but you know, miss, guessing gets you nowhere.

   V.  My  work is  guaranteed to  last the length of your recovery.

Em (sim.)      Am             F#dim            B7
Put away those pliers, honey, trust me cause I know the options:

Em          Am                F#dim        B7
How about a nine-month long vacation and a two-foot coffin?

Bridge:
A                 B                      C
I've been getting up close and intimate, some close calls but 

G            A
hey! I'm getting into it.

A                   B                       C
In some states they say you can burn for it but I'll burn that 

D
bridge when I get to it.

D (sim.)  C#   C   B
                      to get professional.

D   C#   C   B
                It has a nice ring:

D   C#   C   B

Instrumental (as for second verse)

Bridge:
A                B                         C

G            A

A                B                   C                    D
Fifty bucks a month oughta cover it, two down now but who's gonna notice it?

    A                    B               C
And if you show up and I am unavailable, my partner Brian would
