F          				C
This here is the place where I will be staying
      F
There isn't a number, you can call the payphone
C				    F
Let it ring a long long, long long time
			     Am  		C
If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more
F           C
O-o-o-o-o-o-h 
F					      Am		      D-D
If I don't pick up, pick up, the sidewinder sleep-sleep-sleeps in a coil

Chorus
------
 D-D  			 G           C-G  		     Am
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her
 D-D			 G	     C-G		     Am
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her
 D-D			 G	     C-G		     Am
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her
 

There's scratches all around the coin-slot like a

Heartbeat, baby, trying to wake up

But this machine can only swallow money

You can't play a path by computer design, but just another stupid, stupid sign

Tell he-e-e-e-e-r,  Tell her she can kiss my ass and laugh

And say that you were only kidding, that way she'll know

That its really really really really me - me

Chorus


Baby this soup doesn't really grab me

Today I need something more sub-stub-sub-substantial

A can of beans, some black-eyed peas, some Nescafe and ice

A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading from Doctor Zeuss


Chorus

Bm				Am
The Cat in the Hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way
Bm				Am
Always had a smile and a reason to pretend,
               Bm			   Am   		C
Their world's flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream
		Em                 D-D
The sidewinder sleeps-on-his-back
