   MAMA'S BOY 


[ E  A  E  G ] x2


E        A     E     G    E    A   E    G
Couldn't keep a secret got a concrete skull
Couldn't shut up you're an imbecile
You're an ugly dog there's nothing to gain
You couldn't shut up got a bad bad brain


[ G  B ] x2

                           
Couldn't hold your tongue you were just too young
Like a two year old you told you told
You are all the same jelly bean brain
Every one's a secret nerd every one's a closet lame


   A                       E  C   D
   Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
   Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
   Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy


[ B  A ] x2

[ E  A  E  G ] x2


Don't want to work in a hot dog stand
Be a busboy messenger or a doorman
It's an abstract world you're an abstract man
Abstract city don't give a damn


[ G  B ] x2


Couldn't keep a secret got a concrete skull...

   Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...


E


Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...


E


Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...

   I AM NOT AFRAID OF LIFE 


E
I am not afraid of life
Of the poor man's struggle of the killer's knife
I am not afraid of life
Of an insane rage of the minimum wage
I am not afraid of life


   C                      E
   I am not afraid of life
   I am not afraid of life


G                                 A
But I see an old lady with a shopping bag
        C                E
And I wonder is life a drag


I am not afraid of pain
But it hurts so bad I feel so mad
No one see the truth
There's nothing to gain a life goes down the drain
Don't want to die at an early age

   I am not afraid of life...

But I see a street crazy shivering with cold 
Is it a crime to be old


[ E   G A E   A G ] x2

[ E   C D ] x2

B


There's the threat of the nuclear bomb
We know it's wrong we know it's wrong
Is there a chance for peace
Will the fighting ever cease
Mankind's almost out of luck
A maniac could blow us up

   I am not afraid of life...

But I get down on my knees and I pray
Is there hope for the world today

I am a tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tough tough guy...

   Wart, wart hog
   Wart, wart hog
   Wart, wart hog
   Wart, wart hog


F                 Ab       Bb
I shot some dope, I feel so sick
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
Drugs and bitches and junkies and fags
Artificial phoneys, I hate it, hate it


[ Bb  C#  D# ] x2


Sick, sick, sick, It's the price I pay
It's a sick world, what can I say
...................................
They steal, they cheat , they take, take, take

   Wart, wart hog...

I wanna puke, I can't sit still
There's sex and drugs, it's a nightmare world
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
It's a hopeless life, I hate it, hate it


[ D#  B  G# ] x4


These drugs and lies, it's a ripoff, man
It's an outlaw life, or a renegade bash
Drugs and bitches and commies and queers
Artificial phoneys, I hate it , hate it

   DANGER ZONE 


[ B   E D A B   E D ] x2


E                   B
New York city is a real cool town
 C              D
Society really brings me down
E                   B
Our playground is a pharmacy
C                D
Kids find trouble so easily


B


Other countries are just as bad
The Soviets really make me mad
On the boulevard where police hide
Let's steal a car for a joyride


   A                D     C
   All alone in the danger zone
   All alone in the danger zone
   All alone in the danger zone
   All alone in the danger zone
           

They say you're just an awkward kid
You flipped your lid you flipped your lid
You love wine like they love cash
Feel your rage spread like a rash


B

[ E   D G ] x4


You flipped your lid you flipped your lid
You flipped your lid you flipped your lid
They say you're just an awkward kid
You flipped your lid you flipped your lid
           
   All alone in the danger zone...


[ D   G F C ] x4

                                  
   All alone in the danger zone...

   CHASING THE NIGHT 


[ G  C ] x2

[ G  C  D ] x4


G                D        C
Standing here in front of the mirror

Feelin hot yeah I'm on fire
I'm never ever goin' to tire


   G             D          C
   Tonight it's gonna be alright
   Chasing the night
   Its gonna be alright
   Chasing the night
   Chasing chasing the night
   Its gonna be alright


Live my life as I choose
I paid the price, paid my dues
You know I need no alibi
Daytime troubles fading
Nights intoxicating
Gonna have it all tonight
That ain't no lie
                             
   Tonight it's gonna be alright...


B
Rock all night sleep all day
E
It don't matter what they say
B
Ain't never gonna change my ways
C                       D
And I won't be back till Monday


[ G  C ] x2


Feelin exasperating
Excitement generating
I'm never ever gonna tire
City is overloading
The circuits are exploding
Ain't comin down, no I'm too wired

   Tonight it's gonna be alright...


[ guitar solo - no idea ]
