[D]What was that crack I made? [Dadd9]Swung a hammer wrapped in suede
[Aadd9]Like a [A] lic[Aadd9]k from a luna[A]tic beat[Aadd9]nick, knock you sen[A]seless[Aadd9] as I b[A]abble on
[D]I strike between the lines, [Dadd9]hissing words in serpentine
[Aadd9]Back----[A]bit[Aadd9]er with an appe[A]tite[Aadd9], I coil and [A]ratt[Aadd9]le, then I [A]babble on
[C]Everytime I ad[D]d a line, I w[A]ish I could sub[Dadd9]tract
[C]Too late too take it back
PLAY CHORDS FROM FIRST TWO LINES OF VERSE
[D]Conversations in veneer, [Dadd9]Sand’em down they’re insincere
[Aadd9]Off [A]guar[Aadd9]d, better check the c[A]ue c[Aadd9]ard, Got ghost[A]writ[Aadd9]ers for my [A]babble on
[D]So I communicate, [Dadd9]Intending to humiliate
[Aadd9]On [A]atta[Aadd9]ck with a cardiac c[A]omeb[Aadd9]ack, You take s[A]helt[Aadd9]er, I take [A]babble on
[E]And if talk is che[D]ap, the [Dadd9]price is h[A]igh
When I let anot[D]her [Dadd9]arrow f[E]ly
[E]Better to be s[D]een and [Dadd9]never h[A]eard
Than to babble [D]on with [Dadd9]every w[E]ord
PLAY CHORDS FROM ALL OF VERSE
[D]What was that crack I made? [Dadd9]File a claim with medicaid
[Aadd9]All my r[A]umor[Aadd9]s spread like [A]tumo[Aadd9]rs, tale and ta[A]ttle[Aadd9], rant and [A]rattle on
[D]Ugly as the sun it is, [Dadd9]Sold out to the slander biz
[Aadd9]Gotta [A]keep[Aadd9] the tongue in [A]line[Aadd9], Even fools seems w[A]iser[Aadd9] off the [A]babble on
[E]And if talk is c[D]heap, then [Dadd9]why the [A]thrill in an idle t[D]ongue that [Dadd9]fires at [E]will?
[E]Better to be [D]silent and[Dadd9] be st[A]rong, Than to let my [D]babble [Dadd9]babble [A]on
[A]Than to let my [D]babble [Dadd9]babble [A]on, than to babble [Dsus]on
PLAY CHORDS FROM FULL VERSE AND A HALF, THEN FINISH ON E.
