INTRO: G C D

VERSE 1:
G g C c
Up in the morning, work like a dog
D d C' B' G'
It's better than sittin', like a bump on a log
G g C c
Mind all your manners, be quiet as a mouse
D d C' B' G'
Someday you'll own a home, that's as big as a house
G g C c
I know a fella, he eats like a horse
D d C' B' G'
Knocks his old balls, round the old golf course
G g C c
You oughta see his wife, she's a cute little dish
D d C' B' G'
She smokes like a chimney, and drinks like a fish

CHORUS:
 GC
There's a big old goofy man, dancin' with a big old goofy girl
 DCG
 Oooh baby, it's a big old goofy world

VERSE 2:
g C c
Elvis had a woman, with a head like a rock
D d C' B' G'
I wish I had a woman, that made my knees knock
g C c
She'd sing like an angel, and eat like a bird
D d C' B' G'
And if I wrote a song, she'd know every single word

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL: play Verse 2

VERSE 3:
g C c
Kiss a little baby, give the world a smile
D d C' B' G'
And if you take an inch, give them back a mile
g C c
Cause if you lie like a rug, and you don't give a damn
D d C' B' G'
Your never gonna be, as happy as a clam
g C c
Sitting in a hotel, trying to write a song
D d C' B' G'
My head is just as empty, as the day is long
g C c
Why it's clear as a bell, I should have gone to school
D d C' B' G'
I'd be wise as an owl, instead of stubborn as a mule

CHORUS
 DCG
 Oooh baby, it's a big old goofy world
