THE MAD, MAD MOONLIGHT
Intro
A   Asus A   Asus A G D A
A   Asus A   Asus A G F# F
      D                           G                      D
It was just like a dream, yeah, a surreal scene, like a blue orange
I thought my senses had gone, like I was writing a song about a foot-long syringe
A             G            D
And she said, "Hello, dear, it's my party
"So I          hope you'll be smart, hee hee   And I
said,"I don't know, but I think I'll go fix me
A(Intro riff")
a stiff drink"
        D                               G
Well, I sat there and stared, because at first I was scared of this female tarzan
And while she talked with the apes about champagne and grapes, I approached her garden
      A                 G            D
And she said,"Now, now, don't try to leave me,
              "It's unfair to deceive me
              "I could kill if you try to escape me,
A (intro riff)
come upstairs my friend"
  Emin     Bmin   F               A
Now I knew, I knew, I couldn't be that mean,
Emin         Bmin               F             G              A  A sus
so I tried, yeah I really tried to leave her but she was a big, big, big girl, big girl

Man, it was mean to be seen in the robes you wore for Lent
                             E
you must've known that it was Easter
                                                    G#
There for a while, in your smile, I could see Mexico blood say
                     E
"This is true I was a teaser"
B                               B(b5) (see below)
There were a thousand manitas
being exchanged for pesetas
