Song for Insane Times  Kevin Ayers

Cm9 F6/G (x3)
(This bit's slightly odd; it's either in 5/4 or it's two and a half bars long but it's hard to say which;
with the slight swing and the syncopated drum fill over the top it's essentially free-form. Your best bet
is to listen to it and make up your own mind!)

[GM7]People say they [Bm7]want to be free
[FM7]They look at him and they [CM7]look at me
[Am7]But it's only themselves they're [Gm7]wanting to see
[FM7]And everybody knows a[CM7]bout it.
[GM7]We talked all night and were [Bm7]all turned on
[FM7]We believe we heard him [CM7]singing his song
[Am7]Telling us all there was [Gm7]work to be done
[FM7]And we all sung the [CM7]chorus of "I Am The Walrus"
[GM7]Yes, Disneyland has [Bm7]come to town
[FM7]Everyone's dressed and [CM7]standing around
[Am7]Alice is wearing her [Gm7]sexiest gown
[FM7]But she doesn't want you to [CM7]look at her
[GM7]Beautiful people are [Bm7]queuing to drown
[FM7]They wait for the lifeguard to [CM7]put on his crown
[Am7]But he's up at the [Gm7]other end of town
[FM7]Trying to talk to the [CM7]mirror
EbM7 DbM7 (repeat)
[Cm9]FM7 [F6/G]CM7 (these chords have the weird run over them from the intro)
[GM7]The scientist talks and he [Bm7]knows what he means
[FM7]He sits on the floor and has [CM7]beautiful dreams
[Am7]But he gets brought down by a [Gm7]woman who screams
[FM7]But he knows it's only a [CM7]record, oh yes it is!
[GM7]His brave new girl stop[Bm7]s feeding the ants
[FM7]And looks at him with her [CM7]septic pants
[Am7]She still knows how to ma[Gm7]ke him dance
[FM7]And forget about emanci[CM7]pation, it's all imagination
[GM7]And you and I w[Bm7]e sit and hum
[FM7]We know something'[CM7]s got to come
[Am7]To get us off our [Gm7]endless bum
[FM7]There's probably one in the [CM7]bathroom or in the hall
(Repeat keyboard solo/intro and descend into a freeform jazz exploration to fade.)
