From the musical, Grease

Intro:

D#6/9

     D#       -     Cm7   - Fm7       -      A# -
Your story's sad to tell, a teenage ne'er-do-well
     Gm7     -      Cm7       -     Fm7 - A# -
Most mixed up non-delinquent on the block
     Gm7      -    C7 -
Your future's so unclear now,
       Fm7     -      C#9 -
what's left of your career now
      D#     -   Cm7       -      G#m6/B
Can't even get a trade-in on your smock

              D#       Cm
Beauty school drop-out, 
        Fm7           A#
no graduation day for you
              D#       Cm
Beauty school drop-out, 
               G#
missed your midterms
                A#
and flunked shampoo
        D#
Well at least you could have
Cm            Fm7                 A#
taken time to wash and clean your clothes up
      Gm                Cm                Fm7
After spending all that dough to have the doctor
         A#
fix your nose up 

         D#     Cm
Baby get moving,
              Fm7           A#
why keep your feeble hopes alive
             D#      Cm
What are you proving?
               G#                 A#
You've got the dream, but not the drive
       D#            D#+              G#             C#9
If you go for your diploma, you could join the steno pool
             D#  -   Cm   -   Fm7  -  A#  -   D#
Turn in your teasin' comb and go back to high school

              E        C#m
Beauty school drop-out, 
         F#m7                B
hangin' around the corner store
              E        C#m
Beauty school drop-out, 
           A                 B
it's about time you knew the score
          E                  C#m
Well they couldn't teach you anything,
    F#m7                B
you think you're such a looker
       G#m            C#m
But no customer would go to you,
  F#m            B
unless she was a hooker
           E       C#m
Baby don't sweat it,
               F#m7          B
you're not cut out to hold a job
       E        C#m
Better forget it, 
                A              B
who wants their hair done by a slob
         E                      E+
Now your bangs are curled, your lashes twirled,
    A                  D9
But still the world is cruel
              E  -  C#m   -  F#m7  - B   -   E       B
Wipe off that angel face and go back to high school


           E       C#m
Baby don't blow it, 
             F#m7           B7-9
don't put my good advice to shame
         E       C#m
Baby you know it, 
          A              B
Even Dear Abby'd say the same
         E                    E+             A            D9
Now I've called the shot, get off the pot, I really gotta fly
         E  -  C#m  -  F#m7  -  B  -   E
Gotta be goin' to that maltshop in the sky

Beauty school drop-out, 
           E6/9   
go back to high school
