DsusE Em * served them right.
(repeat the above)
F6/9 Ever take a minute just to show a real emotion,
in between the moisture cream and velvet facial lotion?
Bbmaj9 Abmaj9 Bbmaj9 Abmaj9 Ever tell your kids you're glad that they can think?
Bbmaj9 Abmaj9 Bbmaj9 Abmaj7 Ever say you loved them? Ever let them watch you drink?
DsusE Ever wonder why your daughter looked so sad? It's
Em * such a drag to love a plastic Mom and Dad.
F6/9 CsusD DsusE EsusF# DsusE Mama! Mama! Your child was killed in the park to-day,

CsusD F Em * Shot by the cops as she quietly lay.
C6/9 Am9 DsusE Fmaj9 Em By the side of the creeps she knew. They killed her too.
