Genius - Warren Zevon

Chorded by Egg Flipper

Standard Tuning

V1:
Dm                       C
I've got a bitter pot of je ne sais quoi
Dm                                  C
Guess what?  I'm stirring it with a monkey's paw
Bb                            A
Since I saw you coming out of my barber's shop
Dm                    Am
In that skimpy little halter top

V2:
Dm                                         C
Did you light the candles? Did you put on "Kind of Blue"?
Dm                          C
Did you use that Ivy League voodoo on him, too?
Bb                                A
He thinks he'll be alright but he doesn't know for sure
Dm                          Am
Like every other unindicted co-conspirator

Chorus
F               C
Mata Hari had a house in France
Dm                          C
Where she worked on all her secret plans
Bb                       A
Men were falling for her sight unseen
          Dm        Am
She was a genius

V3:
Dm                                      C
There's a a face in every window of the Songwriters' Neighborhood
Dm                                             C
Everybody's your best friend when you're doing well, I mean good
Bb                                Am
The poet who lived next door when you were young and poor
Dm                           Am
Grew up to be a backstabbing entrepreneur

Chorus
F                     C
Albert Einstein was a ladies' man
Dm                          C
While he was working on his universal plan
Bb                     A
He was making out like Charlie Sheen
         Dm           Am
He was a genius

V4:
Dm                          C
When you dropped me and you staked your claim
Dm                    C
On a V.I.P. who could make your name
Bb                        A
You latched on to him and I became
               Dm         Am
A minor incon-venience

V5:
Dm                 C
Your protege don't care about art
Dm                     C
I'm the one who always told you you were smart
Bb                      A
You broke my heart into smithereens
              Dm          Am
And that took genius

V6:
Dm                        C
You and the barber make a handsome pair
Dm                                    C
Guess what?  I never liked the way he cut your hair
Bb                       A
I didn't like the way he turned your head
            Dm                        Am
But there's nothing I can do or say I haven't done or said

Chorus
F                 C
Everybody needs a place to stand
Dm                     C
And a method for their schemes and scams
Bb                     A
If I could only get my record clean
         Dm
I'd be a genius
