VERSE 1:

   Billy [D]rapped all night about his [Dmaj7]suicide,

   How he'd [Bm]kick it in the head when he was [D/A]twenty-five
   [F#m]Speed jive, don't wanna stay alive [A]  when you're  [Asus4]twenty-[A]five
   And [D]Wendy's stealing clothes from [Dmaj7]Mark's & Sparks and
   [Bm]Freddy's got spots from [D/A]ripping off the stars
   [F#m] From his face - a funky little[A] boat race [Asus4]       [A]
PRE-CHORUS:

   The [Em]television man is [Em7]crazy

   sayin' we're [F#]juvenile delinquent [Bm]wrecks
   Oooh, [G]man, I need a T[D]V when I've got [A] T. Rex  [Asus4]       [A]
Oh brother, ya guessed - I'm a dude yeah


(In the chorus, the words in ( ) is the stuff that
the lead singer's saying.)


CHORUS: (see below for the electric guitar)


   [D]      [Dmaj7]All the young du[Bm]des (hey, dudes)
   [D/A]Carry the n[Am]ews (where are ya?)
   [Am7/G]Boogaloo du[F]des (stand up, c'mon)
   [C]Carry the ne[G]ws [C]   [A]   [D]
   [D]      [Dmaj7]All the young du[Bm]des (I wanna hear you)
   [D/A]Carry the n[Am]ews (I wanna see you)
   [Am7/G]Boogaloo du[F]des (I wanna talk to you, all of you)
   [C]Carry the ne[G]ws [C]   [A]   [D]
What the electric guitar is doing in the chorus is basically
just picking out the bass line. If you're playing this in a
band with an electric, the electric should play this:

CHORUS-RIFF:

       [D]          [Dmaj7]          [Bm]          [D/A]          [Am]          [Am7/G]                      
   E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
   B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
   G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
   D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
   A|--5---------4---------2---------0---------0--------------------|
   E|----------------------------------------------------3----------|


       [F]          [C]          [G]    [C]    [A]    [D]                                        
   E--------------------------------------|
   B--------------------------------------|
   G--------------------------------------|
   D--------------------------------------|
   A-------------3---------2---3---4---5--|
   E---1----------------------------------|

VERSE 2: (play like verse 1)


Lucy's looking sweet, coz he dresses like a queen,
but he can kick like a mule, its a real mean team
But we can love, oh yes, we can love
And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on that revolution stuff
What a drag - too many snags


PRE-CHORUS: (play like first pre-chorus)

Well I drunk a lotta wine and I'm feelin' fine
Gonna race some cat to bed
Is that concrete all around or is it in my head?
Yeah, I'm a dude yeah


CHORUS: (play like first chorus)


All the young dudes (hey dudes)
Carry the news (where are ya?)
Boogaloo dudes (stand up)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (I wanna hear ya)
Carry the news (I wanna see you)
Boogaloo dudes (I wanna relate to you)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (what dudes?)
Carry the news (I don't see any dudes, c'mon)
Boogaloo dudes (I wanna kiss you)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (hey you there, with the glasses)
Carry the news (I want you)
Boogaloo dudes (...)
Carry the news

then keep playing the chorus and fade out. I can't hear
any more of what the lead singer is saying. It's not
important anyway. Just make up some stuff.
