Am              B                  Em            Em(D)
I said if I was smart that I would save up for a piece of string

Everybody wants a rock to 
C      G        D      G
Wind a piece of string around

Chorus:
A         B    C    D 
Throw the crib door wide
G        D      C      -
Let the people crawl inside 
A       B       C  D
Someone in this town
G            D          C      
Is trying to burn their playhouse down
C            G        D        G
They want to stop the ones who want

A rock to wind a string around

But everybody wants a rock to
C      G        D       G
Wind a piece of string around

Let the people crawl inside

Someone in this town

Is trying to burn their playhouse down

They want to stop the ones who want
C         G      D       G
A rock to wind a string around
C        G    D       G
But everybody wants a rock to
C      G        D       G
Wind a piece of string around

Everybody wants prosthetic
Foreheads on their real heads
Everybody wants prosthetic 
Foreheads on their real heads

Let the people crawl inside 
Someone in this town

But everybody wants a rock to
Wind a piece of string around
