 EmEm
We're an oyster cracker on the stew
 EmEm
And the honey in the tea
 D7D7
We're the sugar cubes, one lump or two,
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
In the black coffee,
 EmEm
The golden crust on an apple pie,
 EmEm
That shines in the sun at noon,
 D7D7
We're a wheel of cheese high in the sky,
D7 C7 D7 B7 Em *
But we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

Piano Solo...

Em (x3)

 EmEm
In a boat that's built of sticks and hay,
 EmEm
We drifted from the shore,
 D7D7
With a captain who's too proud to say,
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
That he dropped the oar,
 EmEm
Now a tiny hole has sprung a leak,
 EmEm
 In this cheap pontoon,
 D7D7
Now the hull has started growing weak,
D7 C7 D7 B7 Em *
And we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

 G
We're gonna be
 G
Sinkin' soon,
 Em
We're gonna be
 Em
Sinkin' soon,
 GC7
 Everybody hold your breath 'cuz,
 B7Em
We're gonna be sinkin' soon

 G
Sinkin' soon,

We're gonna be
 Em
Sinkin' soon,

 Everybody hold your breath 'cuz,
 B7Em
 Down and down we go.

Piano Solo

Em (x3)

 EmEm
Like the oyster cracker on the stew,
 EmEm
The honey in the tea
 D7D7
The sugar cubes, one lump or two?
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
No thank you, none for me.
 EmEm
We're the golden crust on an apple pie,
 EmEm
That shines in the sun at noon,
 D7D7
Like the wheel of cheese high in the sky
 D7C7D7B7Em
 Well ... we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

B7 Em (let ring)
