INTRO:    Am     G   (x 4)

    Am       G       Am              G                 Am      G
Not everyone in New York would pay to see Andrew Lloyd Webber
        Am            G          Am          G             Am     G
May his trousers fall down as he bows to the queen and the crown
        F
I don't know what tune that the orchestra played
            D                G           E
But it went by me sickly and sentimental

Am                                    D/F#*
Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
                   G
Tammy Baker's got a lot on her plate
Am                              D/F#
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
                    G
Andy Warhol must be laughing in his grave

Am   G  (x 4)

The band of the night take you to ethereal heights over dinner
You wander the streets never reaching the heights that you seek
And the sugar that dripped from the violins bow
Made the children go crazy, put a hole in the tooth of a hag


Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Tammy Baker must be losing her faith
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
Andy Warhol must be laughing in his grave

        Am    
And the dogs are on the road
          D
We're all tempting fate
Am
Cars are shooting by
        D
With no number plates
    E
And here comes Mrs. Hairy Legs

(Chords under harmonica solo)  Am   G

I saw Elvis Presley walk out of a Seven Eleven
And a woman gave birth to a baby and then bowled 257
The excess of fat on your American bones
Will cushion the impact as you sink like a stone

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Tammy Baker, Tammy Baker ...
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
Cheap Picasso, cheap Picasso fake
Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Kathy Straker, boy could she lose some weight
Can I buy another slice of real estate
                                       Am   G  D/F#  F
Liberace must be laughing in his grave

E           A      E        A            E   A  (repeat to fade)
Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
