  A                       Em
A woman came up to me and said
     A                        Em
"I'd like to poison your mind
     A                          Em
With wrong ideas that appeal to you
       A                Em
Though I am not unkind"
    A                          Em
She looked at me, I looked at something
 A                       Em 
Written across her scalp
    A                                   Em
And these are the words that it faintly said
     A                      A7
As I tried to call for help:

        D                     Em             A
There's only one thing that I know how to do well
         Bm                       G
And I've often been told that you only can do
          A              D
What you know how to do well
              G      A
And that's be you,
               G     A
Be what you're like,
            G      E7
Be like yourself,
           A                  F
And so I'm having a wonderful time
                   C                    Dm
But I'd rather be whistling in the dark
  Bb                  C
Whistling in the dark
 C                   Dm
Whistling in the dark
 Bb                  C
Whistling in the dark
 C                  Dm
Whistling in the dark
 Bb                  C
Whistling in the dark
         C                        Dm
There's only one thing that I like
            Bb                   C
And that is whistling in the dark
 
 D  Em C  D

  A                      Em
A man came up to me and said
     A                       Em
"I'd like to change your mind
   A                           Em
By hitting it with a rock," he said,
        A                 Em
"Though I am not unkind."
   A                          Em
We laughed at his little joke
           A                   Em
And then I happily walked away
    A                              Em
And hit my head on the wall of the jail
          A                     A7
Where the two of us live today.

        D                     Em             A
There's only one thing that I know how to do well
          Bm                      G
And I've often been told that you only can do
          A              D
What you know how to do well
              G      A
And that's be you,
               G     A
Be what you're like,
             G      E7
Be like yourself,
             A                F

                   C                   Dm
