                           THIS MACHINE IS 4

Song from Self Entitled. There's this Dr Seuss story called "The Sneetches". Its 
about these yellow creatures; 
some with stars on their bellies and some without. The starred one look down on the others.(Noses up and 
peering down) So, in comes McBean who has a machine that could but stars on the bellies of those without 
for 3 bucks.(Hanging out with old McBean and his grandiose machine) Now the ones who orignally had stars 
don't feel so special, so McBean comes up with a Star-Off machine that takes off the stars for 10 bucks. 
The Sneetches go back and forth in these machines until they are broke and McBean walks away a rich guy.
Turning bellies into stars, then repeating. Making everyone the same is the end game 
Sound Familiar?

Condescending keeps us gay in a denotative way                
Noses up and peering down. Tight lips pursed into a frown

Hanging out with old McBean and his grandiose machine
No one seems to be annoyed. No one sees this as obscene

She's a gear, you're a cam, I'm a cog.
She's a gear, you're a cam, I'm a cog
This machine was invented by McBean 
but we all make up the parts
Cuts us up and take our hearts



This tab is 4 you!!.... I'm sorry. That little high octave riff in the outro was pretty hard to figure
out. 


Okay more Self Entitles are coming up.
