Intro: Em Em Am Em / Em D (x2)

Em Am EmHe was an accident waiting to happen
Em DMost accidents happen at home
Em Am Em Maybe he should've gone out more often
Em D Maybe he should've answered the phone
C DHip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame'
C D That's how he earned his regal sobriquet
C DThen he threw it all away
Em Am EmFor a porcelain monkey
C DHe threw it away for a porcelain monkey
C DGave it all up for a figurine
C D He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas
C D And his face on velveteen
From a shotgun shack singing Pentecostal hymns Through the wrought iron gates to the TV room He had a little world, it was smaller than your hand It's a rockabilly ride from the glitter to the gloom Left behind by the latest trends Eating fried chicken with his regicidal friends That's how the story ends With a porcelain monkey (Repeat Chorus) (Repeat Intro) Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame' That's how he earned his regal sobriquet Then he threw it all away For a porcelain monkey He threw it away for a porcelain monkey Gave it all up for a figurine He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas And his face on velveteen
