Intro:
2x: em* G D

em*                   G                      D
This is the ballad of Hollywood Jack and the Rage Cage
em*           G                                      D
Nothing could stop them when Jables and Rage hit the stage
em*                        G                         D
And Hollywood Jack hit the big time and when to make movies
em*                      G                       D
Rage Kage was left far behind in the dust of his dreams

em*                 D                   G         C           B7
And he grumbled and growled and watched Hollywood Jack on Jay Leno
em*             D            G           C             B7
He bellowed and said he'd be nothing without help from Kage
em*              D         G          C          B7
He burned up the photos of Jables and Kage doing mushrooms
em*          D             G         C       B7
"Fuck him, I don't need no Hollywood jack anyway"

em*                        G                   D
So Hollywood Jack lived up high on a hill in a bubble
em*                             G                 D
And Rage Kage lived deep in the broiling valley below

         em*       G
Yes, the rage Kage bubbled with rage
   D
He looked at the ground
       B7
And he looked on the stage
    em*
The lava was throwing
    G                      D      B7
And boiling inside the old Kage

em*          D                G         C         B7
As Hollywood Jack climbed the ladder of stardom before him
em*               D        G             C             B7
He watched as his indie credentials flew right out the door
em*                    D            G            C         B7
He'd make millions and then he'd go out and he'd make even more millions
em*              D               G           C        B7
He'd screen KG's calls and snort coke of the ass of a whore

em*
No one respected him
C
They just rejected him
G                      D
No one would represent Kage
em*                        C
Left on the streets of his dreams
                       G            B7
he would cry, and he'd rage for the stage
Ahahaaa


Epic flute solo:
4x: em* C D
    B7

     em*                  G                        D
Then Hollywood Jack got a message that Kage was in trouble
     em*                     G                     D
They sent Kage away cause he had gone completely insane
   em*                    G                  D
So Hollywood Jack jumped upon a jetplane and flew all that night through the rain
   em*                   G                        D
To be with his friend to see what remained of his brain
     em*       D             G             C        B7
Then Hollywood Jack told the doctors: "You got to retrieve him!"
       em*         D       G           C              B7
You've got the technology, use the techniques of your trade
   em*             D           G            C            B7
He grabbed their lapels and he screamed "BY GOD YOU MUST SAVE HIM!"
        em*           D            G             C           B7
Because Rage Kage and I; can't you see that were one and the same!

Aaaah!

em*
RAGE KAGE!
C
OH RAGE KAGE!
           G                     D
There'd be magic inside that old name
        em*
And you know,
        C
yes you know
            G                  D
When you're going completely insane

   em*
Oh Rage Kage!
   C
Oh Rage Kage!
       G                    D
Oh the lion will roar once again

        em*
And you know
        C
Yes you know
            G                  B7
When you're going completely insane

em*         D            G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
em*         D            G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
em*         D            G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
em*         D            G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
em*         D            G            C          B7
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
em*         D            G            C          B7
Hollywood Jack and the Rage Kage were out once again.
