INTRO: (Intro riff x2)


VERSE 1:
D (intro riff)
I been Norman Mailered, Maxwell Taylored.

D (intro riff)
I been John O'Hara'd, McNamara'd.

I been [G]Rolling Stoned and [F]Beatled [G]'til I'm [A]blind.

I been [D]Ayn Randed, nearly branded

[G]Communist, 'cause I'm left-handed.

A D (bar7)
That's the hand I use, well, never mind!


VERSE 2: (as before)
I been Phil Spectored, resurrected.
I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered.
Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay.
And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,
And all my wealth won't buy me health,
So I smoke a pint of tea a day.


INTERLUDE:
[D]    I knew a man, his brain was so [G]small,

He couldn't think of nothing at [A]all.

He's not the same as you and [D]me.

He doesn't dig poe[G]try.

He's so unhip that when you say [A]Dylan,

He thinks you're talking about Dylan [D]Thomas,

Whoever he was. [G]

The man ain't got no [A]culture,


But it's alright, Ma, everybody must get stoned.


VERSE 3: (as before)
I been Mick Jaggered, silver daggered.
Andy Warhol, won't you please come home?
I been mothered, fathered, aunt and uncled,
Been Roy Haleed and Art Garfunkeled.
I just discovered somebody's tapped my phone.


ENDING: (repeat intro riff to fade)
