CAPO: 1

Em                                  Am        Am G D
  Some said the local lake had been enchanted
                                  G       G B7 Em
Others said it must have been the weather
                                     Am    Am G D
The neighbors were trying to keep it quiet
                                  G        G B7 Em
But I swear that I could hear the laughter
                                  Am       Am
So they jokingly nicknamed it the porridge
G D                                              G      G B7 Em
Cause overnight that lake had turned as thick as butter
                                  Am        Am G D
But the local kids would still go swimming, drinking
                               G
Saying that to them it doesn't matter

G B7        Am7          C              D               G
If you just hold in your breath til you come back up in full
Am7          C              D                       G
Hold in your breath til you thought it through, you fool

Em                                Am     Am G D
  The genius next door was busing tables
                                G      G B7 Em
Wiping clean the ketchup bottle labels
                                 Am     Am G D
Getting high and mumbling German fables
                              G    G B7 Em
Didn't care as long as he was able
                                Am        Am G D
To strip his clothes off by the dumpsters
                            G        G B7 Em
At night while everyone was sleeping
                             Am       Am G D
And to wade midway into that porridge
                               G
Just him and the secret he was keeping

G B7        Am7          C              D               G
If you just hold in your breath til you come back up in full
Am7          C              D                       G       Em
Hold in your breath til you thought it through, you foolish child

Em                                    Am       Am G D
  In the morning the film crews start arriving
                        G         G B7 Em
With donuts, coffee and reporters
                        Am       Am G D
The kids were waking up hungover
                                     G    G B7 Em
The neighbors were starting up their cars
                                 Am        Am G D
The garbageman were emptying the dumpsters
                              G       G B7 Em
Atheists were praying full of sarcasm
                             Am       Am G D
And the genius next door was sleeping
                              G
Dreaming that the antidote is orgasm

G B7        Am7          C              D               G
If you just hold in your breath til you come back up in full
Am7          C              D                       G       Em
Hold in your breath til you thought it through, you foolish child!
