Track #11

C   Em   F   G x2

C                                    Em         
A man once said that the pinnacle of success
F                                G
Is when you've finally lost interest
C           Em           F       G
In money, compliments, and publicity
C                                          Emao
A noble enough idea, I supposeea
F                                            Gii.
How on earth he does this, heaven only knows
C                                    Em
I know I need a lot more of all three of those
                 F              G
Before I ever have the nerve to turn up my nose
                    C     Em            F      G
At any money, compliments, and publicity

C#                   G
I'm broke as the Ten Commandments
F                      G
Sometimes I'm harder to follow

C                               Em         
I don't know whether to walk to school
              F                                    G                     
Or take my lunch, should've worn my watch, it's true
C                            Em      
You may think you see a man who is looking for attention,
F                                           G
But you're looking at a man who has lived
                               C              
Through a little bit of poverty,
          Em               F          G
Some anxiety, some scrutiny

C                                       Em
If I ever do get my money together,
F                                             G
I'm gonna take care of all of my friends
C
Buy an island, run a phone line, call 'em
       Em                      F (stop)    
Tell 'em all to get f**ked
F                       C
Oh! That oughta take care of them
                 Em                
Just be me and my money, 
     F                         G
And my compliments, and my publicity
C                              Em                          F         G
Sing it with me: "money, compliments, and publicity"


G
It's an issue for me, 
F                                   G
I went to see this therapist
                 F                                     G
She said, "Just do the best you can do"
C                            F                  
Do the best you can do...
C                            F                  
Do the best you can do...
G                                                  F
I was hoping for something more specific

C Em F  G C  Em F G   C Em F G   F   G   F  G

C                                                           Em         
A man once said that the pinnacle of success
F                                              G
Is when you've finally lost interest
C              Em                              F   G
In money, compliments, and publicity
C                                              Em
Many years later, another man would say all that again
F                                      G
But not for the sake of inspiring men
C                                           
But rather 'cause he got nine songs
Em                           
And knows he needs at least ten
F                                                            G           
Before he can go back to town and turn 'em all in
C                                  Em              F                     G
To get money--you guessed it--compliments, publicity


C       Em          F        G
Money, compliments, and publicity
C      Em       F        G
Lord, I'm gonna take it to the bank
C      Em        F      G
I said money, I love the compliments and the publicity
C    Em       F        G
I got so many people to thank
C    Em       F        G
I wanna thank Clive Davis 
C    Em          F        G
I wanna thank the Good Lord up in heaven above
C       Em       F        G
And all my fans for my money, my compliments, and my publicity
C        Em        F        G
Money, compliments, and publicity
 C         Em      F        G
Lord, I would bathe in
C       Em      F        G
Money, compliments, and publicity
C        Em       F        G
Money, compliments, and publicity
