I got the chords last week (thanks to
and figured out the little fill in the middle during the
?I smell sex and candy...? part. Here it is...
[B5] Hangin? ?round, downtown[G5] by myself and I?ve[A5] had
[B5]so much time to sit and think abou[G5]t myself and then there[A5] sh
[B5]was like dou[G5]ble cherry pie,[A5] yeah there she
[B5]was, like [G5]disco superf[A5]ly.
There?s a fill in the chorus where there?s no chords so it
sounds crappy unless you can play the fill to take up the void.
( ) hammer-on
p pull off

This fill runs duing the ?I smell sex and? part,
and then the chords come in right before ?candy?
(Fill) B5 G5 A5
I smell sex and candy here
(Fill) B5 G5 A5
Who?s that loungin? in my chair?
(Fill) B5 G5 A5
Who?s that castin? devious stares in my direction?
Mama this surely is a dream...[D5] [A5] [B5]
Yeah momma this sur[G5]ely is a drea[D5]m [A5] [B5]
G5 D5 A5 B5 G5 (F#5) repeatedly
This must be my dream
The F#5 goes right into the next verse, who?s lyrics are:
Hangin? ?round, downtown by myself, and I?ve had
too much caffine and I was thinkin? about myself
and then there she was
in platform double suede, yeah there she was,
like disco lemondade
This goes to the chorus, then to the bridge again
and at the end there is a runthrough of the
chorus and bridge once again.
The last note in this is played a D5 which you just let ring.
To get the strumming down good you?ll have to listen to the
record but it?s not too hard.
Have fun! If you have any additions to this or other things you
want to send me, (comments, etc.) please send them to (Ryan Morris)
