[F]This here is the place where I will be stay[C]ing
There [F]isn't a number, you can call the pay phone
[C]Let it ring a long long long long [F]time
If I don't pick up, hang up, [Am]call back, let it ring[C] some more,  [F]Ohhhhhhh... [C]
If [F]I don't pick up, pick up, the sidewinder [Am]sleep, sleep, sleeps in a coil [C]
[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
Ohhhh.....

There are scratch[F]es all around the coin slot
Like a h[C]eartbeat baby trying to wake up   [F]
But this machine can only [C]swallow money
you can't lay a patch by com[F]puter design
Just a lot of [Am]stupid, stupid signs    [C]

[F]Tell her   [C]
[F]Tell her she can kiss my [C]ass, then laugh and say that you were [F]only kidding.
That way she'll know that it's [Am]really, really, really, really [C]me, me.
[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her

Ohhhh.....

B[F]aby, instant soup doesn't really grab me.
Today[C] I need something more sub - s(tub) - sub - substan[F]tial.
A can of beans or black-eyed peas, some Ne[C]scafe and ice
A Ca[F]ndy bar, a fallen star, or a r[Am]eading from Doctor Su[C]ess

[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her

Ohhhh.....

[Bm]The cat in the hat came back, [Am]wrecked a lot of havoc on the way.
[Bm] Always had a smile and a reason to[Am] pretend,
But their [Bm]world has flat backgrounds and little [Am]need to sleep, but to dream
[C] The sidewinder sl[Em]eeps on his back.

[D]   [D/F#]I can a[D]lwa[D/F#]ys sleep s[G5]tanding up.  [C9]Call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
Ohhhh.....

[D]   [D/F#]Call [D]me when you [D/F#]try to wake [G5]her up, [C9]call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
[D]   [D/F#]I can a[D]lwa[D/F#]ys sleep s[G5]tanding up.  [C9]Call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her
[D]   [D/F#]I can a[D]lwa[D/F#]ys sleep s[G5]tanding up.  [C9]Call [G5]me when you try to [Am]wake her

We[C]'ve got to moogie moogie m[Em]ove on t[D/A]his one.
