Lets Make The Water Turn Black

Frank Zappa

 CEm/BAm
 Now believe me when I tell you that my song is really true
 DmEmFmG
 I want everyone to listen and believe
 CEm/BAm
 It's about some little people from a long time ago
 BbEbAbG
 And all the things the neighbors didn't know
 CEm/BAm
 Early in the morning Daddy Dinky went to work
 DmEmFmG
 Selling lamps and chairs to San Ber'dino Squares
 CEm/BAm
 And I still remember mama with her apron and her pad
 BbAmD
 Feeding all the boys in Ed's Cafe

CHORUS:
 GFGAm
 Whizzing and pasting and pooting through the day
 GAmBmD
 Ronnie helping Kenny helping burn his poots away
 GFEbD
 And all the while on a shelf in a shed
 CAbG
 Kenny's little creature's on display

VERSE 2:
 CEm/BAm
 Ronnie saves his numies on a window in his room
 DmEmFmG
 A marvel to be seen; dysentery green
 CEm/BAm
 While Kenny and his buddies had a game out in the back
 FGAm
 LET'S MAKE THE WATER TURN BLACK!

BRIDGE:
 EmA
 We see them after school in a world of their own
 EmA
 To some it might seem creepy what they do...
 EmCB
 The neighbors on the right sat and watched them every night
 EmD
 I bet you'd do the same if they was you

(CHORUS)

VERSE 3:
 CEm/BAm
 Ronnie's in the Army now and Kenny's taking pills
 DmEmFmG
 Oh! How they yearn to see a bomber burn!
 CEm/BAm
 Color flashing, thunder crashing, dynamite machine!
 FGAm
 Wait till the fire turns green...
 FGAm
 Wait till the fire turns green...
F G A(major)
WAIT TILL THE FIRE TURNS GREEN!
