Notes: It's amazing how the main riff was written incorrect twice; this is the correct
riff and is easily found throughout the verses. This is a fun one, but its a little
unique in a sense. It shouldn't be too hard, but I'd suggest beginners take something a 
little easier.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smelled like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice

[Chorus]
Hey
Go away
Go away
Go away

[Verse 2]
Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen
I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers

[Chorus]
Hey
Go away
Go away
Go away

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
I lie in the soil and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume
You can't fire me because I quit!
Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

[Chorus]
Hey
Go away
Go away
Go away
Go away
Go away
Go away


LEARNING SONG:

If you've been playing enough, you'll have no issues. It may be a different style of
play but nonetheless there is nothing to complain about.

Beginners may have trouble with the speed of the power chords. If you do, I recommend
you got to Drop D tuning and play it that way. It still may be fast but practice will
bring pleasure.

All in all, have fun.
