remember keys
C       D         G
Raisins come from Grapes
G                C
People come from Apes
D           G
I come from Canada
C      D        G
I came in first place
G                 C
In a non existent race
   D           G
To rebuild the Parthenon


    C     D        G
The Parthenon's in Greece
G                   C
Or was it in Grease 2
  D             G
I can't keep my movies straight
C      D       G
When I make mistakes
  G            C
I use a lot of salt
      D            G 
Cause salt makes m'steaks taste great


C       G       Am   C
I don't want to be a bother
C     D         G           D
But I think the phone's for you

Solo -x2-: C D G G C D G

C        D      G
I've got orange pants
  G                C
I wear them when I dance
    D           G
But I don't get out that much
C       D        G
You are just too loud
  G               C
I passed you in a crowd
D             G
Thank you and keep in touch


C       D        G
I don't speak Chinese
    G                C
Not even words like "please"
 D               G
"Thank you", or "how are you?"
    C     D         G
But I can parle Francais
  G            C
I parled a bit today
   D               G
It seemed like the thing to do


C       G       Am   C
I don't want to be a bother
C     D            G     D
But I think you're in my seat
