Call Me Al

Chord pattern for looping: [ D2 – A2 – G2 – A2 ]

A man walks down the street, he says why am I soft in the middle now
Why am I soft in the middle the, rest of my life is so hard
I need a photo-opportunity, I want a shot at redemption
Don’t wanna be a cartoon, in a cartoon graveyard
Bonedigger Bonedigger, dogs in the moonlight
Far away my well-lit door
Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly, get these mutts away from me, you know
I don’t find this stuff amusing anymore

If you’ll be my bodyguard, I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty, and Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

A man walks down the street, he says why am I short of attention
Got a short little span of attention, and wo my nights are so long
Where’s my wife and family, what if I die here
Who’ll be my role-model, now that my role-model is
Gone Gone, he ducked back down the alley with some
Roly-poly little bat-faced girl
All along along, there were incidents and accidents, there were
Hints and allegations

[chorus]

A man walks down the street, it’s a street in a strange world
Maybe it’s the Third World, maybe it’s his first time around
He doesn’t speak the language, he holds no currency
He is a foreign man, he is surrounded by the
Sound, the sound, cattle in the marketplace
Scatterlings and orphanages… he looks
Around, around, he sees angels in the architecture
Spinning in infinity, he says Amen! and Hallelujah!

[chorus]

Hotel California

Chord pattern (African 6/8): [ Dm – A7 – C – G | Bb – F – Gm – A7 ]

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself, ‘This could be heaven or this could be Hell’
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say

[ Bb4 – F4 – Gm4 – Dm4 | Bb4 – F4 – Gm4 – A74 ]
Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place, such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California, any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain, ‘Please bring me my wine’
He said, ‘we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine’
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place, such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the Hotel California, what a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling, pink champagne on ice
And she said, ‘we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And in the master’s chambers, they gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can’t kill the beast

The last thing I remember, I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
‘Relax’ said the night man, ‘We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!’

I Wanna Be Like You

And be just like the other men, I’m tired of monkeying around

optional chords: [ G4 – E74 – A72 – D72 – G2 – B72 ]
O0h-bi-doo, (I wanna be like you)

Can learn to be, hu-u-man too

Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I made a deal with you
What I desire is man’s red fire, to make my dream’s come true
Now give me the secret, man-cub (come on), clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower, so I can be just like you

[chorus]

I’m Yours

[ D4 – A4 – Bm4 – G4 ]

Before the cool done run out I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn
To win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate; No more, no more; It cannot wait; I’m yours

Open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find
Love, love, love…

Listen to the music, people dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be
Loved, loved, loved…

Love Is The Seventh Wave

Chord pattern for 4-chord looping jam: [ D2 – G2 – D2 – A72 ]

In the empire of the senses, you’re the queen of all you survey
All the cities all the nations, everything that falls your way
There is a deeper wave than this, that you don’t understand
There is a deeper wave than this, tugging at your hand

Every ripple on the ocean, every leaf on every tree
Every sand dune in the desert, every power we never see
There is a deeper wave than this, swelling in the world
There is a deeper wave than this, listen to me girl

All the bloodshed, all the anger; all the weapons, all the greed
All the armies, all the missiles; all the symbols of our fear
There is a deeper wave than this, rising in the world
There is a deeper wave than this, listen to me girl

Feel it rising in the cities, feel it sweeping over land
Over borders, over frontiers, nothing will its power withstand
There is no deeper wave than this, rising in the world
There is no deeper wave than this, listen to me girl

Love is the seventh wave, I say…
Love is the seventh wave, I say…
Love is the seventh wave, I say…
Love is the seventh wave, I say…

Shame and Scandal

[ D2 – Em2 – A72 – D2 ]

In Trinidad there was a family
With much confusion as you will see
There was a mama and a papa, a boy who was grown
He wanted to marry have a wife of his own
Found a young girl that suited him nice
He went to his papa to ask his advice
His papa said “Son, I have to say no
Dat girl is your sister but your mama don’t know”

Woe, is me
Shame and scandal in de family
Woe, is me
Shame and scandal in de family

Days went by and the summer came ’round and
And soon the best cook on the island he found
He went to his papa to name the day
His papa shook his head and to him did say,
“You can’t marry dat girl, I have to say no
Dat girl is your sister but your mama don’t know”

Woe, is me …

He went to his mama and covered his head, and
Told his mama what his papa had said
Mama she laughed she say “Go man, go
Your daddy ain’t your daddy but your daddy don’t know.”

Woe, is me …

Sunday Morning

[ Em72 – A72 – DM72 – DM72 ]

Sunday morning, rain is falling
Steal some covers, share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in

But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road, get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Sunday Morning and I never want to leave

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather, still together when it ends

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Sunday Morning and I never want to leave

Upside Down

Who’s to say, what’s impossible well
They forget, this world keeps spinning and with
Each new day, I can feel a change in everything

And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it’s wings
There’s no stopping curiosity, I want to turn the whole thing

Upside down, find the things they say just
Can’t be found, share this love I find with
Everyone, we’ll sing and dance to Mother
Nature’s songs, I don’t want this feeling to go away

Who’s to say, I can’t do everything, well
I can try, and as I roll along I
Begin to find, things aren’t always what they
Seem to be, I want to turn the whole thing

Upside down, find the things they say just
Can’t be found, share this love I find with
Everyone, we’ll sing and dance to Mother
Nature’s songs, I don’t want this feeling to go away

The colors of a rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people walking by
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’ “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you” …

I hear babies cry I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself…
What a wonderful world

[C|D] They’re all the same those [F|G] pretty girls, [G7|A7] they always fly a- [C|D] way
[C|D] Wish I were a [F|G] yellow bird, [G7|A7] I’d fly away with [C|D] you
