Track Info

D He slept right by the yogurt

hut on a painted curb
G Wearing nothing but some cut-offs
A A7
and a muscle shirt
D And at five AM,

the donut girls came quietly to work
G When they slid the trays

and banged the bowls,
A A7
you woke up with a jerk
D Thirty-two ounce soda to

start the day off right
G Every now and then remembering
A A7
little things about last night
D Hold on, take five,

check out the fox in the Corvette
G Then you said,
A A7
"You know it don't get no better than that"
Bm | A | E7 | G | Bm | A | E7 | G | G | Gm | Gm | D | D | D | D | D | [Verse 3]
D He spent all the money

on an ornate waterbed
G It had a carving of a
A A7
tiger right above his head
D And he's embarassed of the

fact that he works at Pizza Shack
G He says he made 90K a year
A A7
before he hurt his back
[Verse 4]
D And the money his sister owes him,

his cousin has,

but he's in jail
G There's all these checks that should
be arriving any day
now in the mail
D But mysteriously,

the checks won't show

and the sticky boombox by the door
G Will end up getting sold once more
A A7
for a lot less than before
Bm A E7 G Bm A E7 G
G Gm Gm D D D D D
