G              Gsus4
Welcome to the camp

I guess you all know why we're here
F
 My name is Tommy
        Em
And I became aware this year
Eb
 If you want to follow me
       G
You've got to play pinball
    C           G
And put in your ear plugs
C           G
Put on your eye shades
    C                     G     G G G F   G
You know where to put the cork (= LINK)

So sorry, I got you sussed
F
 Hey you smokin' mother nature
Em
  This is a bust
Eb
 Hey hung up old Mr. Normal
      G
Don't try to gain my trust
       C               G
'Cause you ain't gonna follow me
C            G
Any of those ways
  C                    G     G G G F   G
Although you think you must (= LINK)

Your ears are truly sealed

 You can't speak either

 Your mouth is filled
Eb
 You can't see nothing
    G
And pinball completes the scene
     C           G
Here comes Uncle Ernie

To guide you to

Your very own machine

Never did and never will
C                G
 Don't want no religion
       F      C      G
And as far as we can tell
C               G
 We ain't gonna take you
