DK.... \"Ram\". . May 1971. . Ab7=BARRE .464544

INTRO
[Cm]  [Cm]  [Cm] 
So[Cm] I sat in the attic, a piano at my nose,
and the wind played a dreadful can[Gm7]tata
(Cantata, cantata, cant[G7]ata).
Sore was[Cm] I from the crack of an enemy\'s hose,
and the horrible sound of to[Gm7]mato
(Tomato, tomato, to[G7]mato).

CHORUS
[Cm]Ketchup (Ketchup)
soup and [Fm]puree (Soup and puree),
don\'t get left be[Cm]hind (Get Left Behind).
[Cm]Ketchup (Ketchup)
soup and [Fm]puree (Soup and puree),
don\'t get left be[Cm]hind
[Cm](Get left behind).  [Cm7](Get left behind).  [Am7](Get left behind). [Ab7] [G7]

VERSE 2
When a [Cm]rattle of rats had a[Gm7]woken,
the [G7]sinews, the nerves and the [Cm]veins.
My piano was boldly [Gm7]outspoken,
in at[G7]tempts to repeat it\'s re[Cm]frain.

So[Cm] I stood with a knot in my stomach,
and[Cm] I gazed at that terrible [G]si[G7]ght
of two young[Cm]sters concealed in a [Fm]barrel,
sucking [Ab7]monkberry m[G7]oon de[Cm]light.

[Fm]Monkberry moon delight.
[Cm]Monkberry moon delight.
[Fm]Monkberry moon delight.
[Cm]Monkberry moon delight.
(Fm Cm) x2

VERSE 3
[Cm]Well, I know my banana is older than the rest,
and my hair is a tangled be[Gm7]retta
(Beretta, be[G7]retta).
But I [Cm]leave my pajamas to Billy Budapest,
and I don\'t get the gist of your let[Gm7]ter.
(Your letter, your let[G7]ter).

CHORUS 2
Catch [Cm]up! (Catch up!),
cats and [Fm]kittens (Cats and kittens),
don\'t get left behind (Get left be[Cm]hind).
Catch up! (Catch up!),
cats and [Fm]kittens (Cats and kittens),
don\'t get left behind (Get left be[Cm]hind).

[Ab7]Monkberry m[G7]oon de[Cm]light.
[Fm]Monkberry moon delight.
[Cm]Monkberry Moon Delight.
[Fm]Monkberry moon delight.
[Cm]Monkberry Moon Delight. REPEAT AND FADE OUT
