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.

 GFGA
I been Rolling Stoned and Beatled 'til I'm blind.

 D
I been 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:
 DG
     I knew a man, his brain was so small,

 A
He couldn't think of nothing at all.

 D
He's not the same as you and me.

 G
He doesn't dig poetry.

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

 D
He thinks you're talking about Dylan Thomas,

 G
Whoever he was.  

 A
The man ain't got no 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)
