Counting Out Time

Genesis

 AbAb/GFm7
 I'm counting out time,
 Ab/EbC#7+
Got the whole thing down by numbers.
 Ab/CBb
All those numbers! Give me guidance!
 Eb7Ab
Lord I need that now.
 Ab/GFm7
The day of judgement's come,
 Ab/EbC#7+
And you can bet that I've been resting,
 Ab/CBb
for this testing, digesting every
 Eb7Ab
 word the experts say.

 F#C#/FAb/Eb
Erogenous zones I love  you.
 BF#/BbAb7
Without you, what would a poor boy do?   

 Ab7
 Found a girl I wanted to date,
Thought I'd better get it straight.
Went to buy a book before it's too late.
Don't leave nothing to fate.

 Ab7/EbBb7C#
I studied every line, every page in the book,
 DD/CBb
 Now, I've got the real thing here, I'm gonna take a look, take a look.

 AbAb/GFm7
 I'm counting out time,
 Ab/EbC#7+
 hoping it goes like I planned it,
 Ab/C
'cos I understand it.
 BbEb7Ab
Look! I've found the hotspots, Figures one to nine.
 Ab/GFm7
still counting out time,
 Ab/EbC#7+
got my finger on the button,
 Ab/CBb
"Don't say nothin' - just lie there still
 Eb7Ab
And I'll get you turned on just fine."

 F#C#/FAb/Eb
Erogenous zones I love you.
 BF#/BbAb7
Without you, what would a poor boy do?    

 Ab7
Touch and go with 1-6.
Bit of trouble in zone No. 7.
Gotta remember all of my tricks.
There's heaven ahead in No. 11!

 Ab7/EbBb7C#
Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils.
 DD/CBb
"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip,
to unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip. Whipee!" 


( Ab Ab/G Fm7 Ab/Eb C#7+ Ab/C Bb Eb7 Ab ) 2x

 AbAb/GFm7
 I'm counting out time,
 Ab/EbC#7+
reaction none to happy,
 Ab/C
Please don't slap me,
 BbEb7Ab
I'm a red blooded male  and the book said I could not fail.
 Ab/GFm7
I'm counting out time,
 Ab/EbC#7+
I got unexpected distress
 Ab/C
from my mistress,
 BbEb7Ab
I'll get my money back from the bookstore right away.

 F#C#/FAb/Eb
Erongenous zones I question you
 BF#/BbAb
Without you, what would a poor boy do?
 BF#/BbAb
Without you, what would a poor boy do?
 BF#/BbAbC#m
Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues.
