MAMA'S BOY
[ E A E G ] x2
[E]Couldn't [A]keep a[E] secre[G]t got[E] a co[A]ncre[E]te sk[G]ull
Couldn't shut up you're an imbecile
You're an ugly dog there's nothing to gain
You couldn't shut up got a bad bad brain
[ G B ] x2
Couldn't hold your tongue you were just too young
Like a two year old you told you told
You are all the same jelly bean brain
Every one's a secret nerd every one's a closet lame
[A] [E] [C] [D]  
 
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

[ B A ] x2
[ E A E G ] x2
Don't want to work in a hot dog stand
Be a busboy messenger or a doorman
It's an abstract world you're an abstract man
Abstract city don't give a damn
[ G B ] x2
Couldn't keep a secret got a concrete skull...
 
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...

[E]  
 
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...

[E]  
 
 Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy...

[A]  
I AM NOT AFRAID OF LIFE
[E]I am not afraid of life
Of the poor man's struggle of the killer's knife
I am not afraid of life
Of an insane rage of the minimum wage
I am not afraid of life
[C]I am not afraid of life[E]
I am not afraid of life
[G]But I see an old lady with a shopp[A]ing bag
And I wo[C]nder is life a dr[E]ag
I am not afraid of pain
But it hurts so bad I feel so mad
No one see the truth
There's nothing to gain a life goes down the drain
Don't want to die at an early age
I am not afraid of life...
But I see a street crazy shivering with cold
Is it a crime to be old
[ E G A E A G ] x2
[ E C D ] x2
[B]  
There's the threat of the nuclear bomb
We know it's wrong we know it's wrong
Is there a chance for peace
Will the fighting ever cease
Mankind's almost out of luck
A maniac could blow us up
I am not afraid of life...
But I get down on my knees and I pray
Is there hope for the world today

DANGER ZONE
[ B E D A B E D ] x2
[E]New York city is a r[B]eal cool town
S[C]ociety really b[D]rings me down
[E]Our playground is a [B]pharmacy

Other countries are just as bad
The Soviets really make me mad
On the boulevard where police hide
Let's steal a car for a joyride
[A]All alone in the [D]danger[C] zone
All alone in the danger zone
All alone in the danger zone
All alone in the danger zone
They say you're just an awkward kid
You flipped your lid you flipped your lid
You love wine like they love cash
Feel your rage spread like a rash

PLANET EARTH 1988
[D]  
D + [ riff ]
The solution to peace isn't clear
The terrorist threat is a modern fear
There are no jobs for the young
They turn to crime and turn to drugs
Battle ships crowd the sea
16 year olds in the army
Our jails are filled to the max
Discrimination against the blacks
[F]Planet Earth 1988, planet Earth 1988
[F]It's too late, [G]it's too late, it's[A] too late
Russians and Americans war machine
Will destroy mankind's dream
They shoot their missiles in the air
They do not care they do not care
Guerrilla armies rule the streets
No more Christmas or trick or treat
Is this what the future will bring
I pray for peace more than anything
Planet Earth 1988, planet...
[ F G A ] x3
The solution to peace isn't clear
The terrorists threat is a modern fear
There is no future for the youth
There is no hope for the young
Death destruction bombs galore
The rich are laughing at the poor
Our jails are filled to the max
Discrimination against the blacks
Planet Earth 1988, planet...

Deadly spitten cobra I am losin' kind
The heart is the place devils congregate
Then you're raised on andiet of bickering at hate
Hair trigger temper tormented mind
Deadly spitten cobra I am losin' kind
