Verse

         Em             Em
We're an oyster cracker on the stew
        Em           Em
And the honey in the tea
          D7           D7
We're the sugar cubes, one lump or two,
C7               B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
 In the black coffee,
  / Em                 Em
The golden crust on an apple pie,
     Em                   Em
That shines in the sun at noon,
        D7              D7
We're a wheel of cheese high in the sky,
D7        C7    D7 B7      Em     *
But we're gonna be sinkin' soon.


Piano Solo...

Em (x3)


     Em                   Em
In a boat that's built of sticks and hay,
   Em               Em
We drifted from the shore,
       D7            D7
With a captain who's too proud to say,
C7                   B7  (/C7/D7 slide)  
 That he dropped the oar,
  /   Em            Em
Now a tiny hole has sprung a leak,
Em               Em
In this cheap pontoon,
        D7               D7
Now the hull has started growing weak,
D7        C7    D7 B7      Em     *
And we're gonna be sinkin' soon.


      G
We're gonna be
        G
Sinkin' soon,
      Em
We're gonna be
        Em
Sinkin' soon,
G         C7
Everybody hold your breath 'cuz,
      B7               Em
We're gonna be sinkin' soon

We're gonna be

Sinkin' soon,

We're gonna be
        Em
Sinkin' soon,
G         C7
Everybody hold your breath 'cuz,
B7               Em
Down and down we go.



Piano Solo

Em (x3)



         Em             Em
Like the oyster cracker on the stew,
    Em           Em
The honey in the tea
    D7           D7
The sugar cubes, one lump or two?
C7                      B7 (/C7/D7  slide)
 No thank you, none for me.
   /      Em                 Em
We're the golden crust on an apple pie,
     Em                   Em
That shines in the sun at noon,
         D7              D7
Like the wheel of cheese high in the sky
D7             C7    D7 B7      Em
Well ... we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

B7 Em (let ring)
