   [C]You only got one [A]finger left
And it's [F]pointing at the [C]door
And you're taking for granted
What the Lord's laid on the floor

Throw your meal ticket out the window
Put your skeletons in jail

   [G]'Cause Lord only knows it's getting [C]late
[G]Your senses are gone so don't you [C]hesitate
[F]To give yourself a [A]call let your [C]bottom dollars f[A]all
[G#]Throwing your two bit c[G]ares down the d[C]rain
Invite me to the seven seas like some seasick man
You will do whatever you please and I'll do whatever I can
Titantic, fare thee well, my eyes are turning pink
Don't call us when the new age gets old enough to drink
'Cause Lord only knows it's getting late
Your senses are gone so don't you hesitate
Move on up the hill there's nothing dead left to kill
Throwing your two bit cares down the drain

*In the recent CMJ article, Beck says the original title of the song was
"Aurele"(a Chicano exclamatory slang, which according to Beck is "somewhere
between (the meaning's of) 'salut' or 'l'chaim' ") but the engineer heard
the chorus wrong and wrote down "O-de-lay". In the end, Beck liked the
way "Odelay" looked better. So, really, he is intending to say "Aurele".
