chords by Piguinho (from Brazil)
[Ab]I'm [Ab/G]counting out [Fm7]time,
Got the [Ab/Eb]whole thing down by [C#7+]numbers.
All those [Ab/C]numbers! Give me [Bb]guidance!
O [Eb7]Lord I need that [Ab]now.
The [Ab/G]day of judgement's [Fm7]come,
And you can [Ab/Eb]bet that I've been [C#7+]resting,
for this t[Ab/C]esting, di[Bb]gesting every
[Eb7]word the experts [Ab]say.
Erogenous [F#]zones I [C#/F]love [Ab/Eb]you.
Wi[B]thout you, what would a [F#/Bb]poor boy do? [Ab7]
[Ab7]Found a girl I wanted to date,
Thought I'd better get it straight.
Went to buy a book before it's too late.
Don't leave nothing to fate.
I s[Ab7/Eb]tudied every [Bb7]line, every [C#]page in the book,
[D]Now, I've got the [D/C]real thing here, I'm [Bb]gonna take a look, take a look.
[Ab]I'm [Ab/G]counting out [Fm7]time,
[Ab/Eb]hoping it goes like I p[C#7+]lanned it,
'cos I unders[Ab/C]tand it.
Look! I've [Bb]found the hotspots, [Eb7]Figures one to [Ab]nine.
still [Ab/G]counting out [Fm7]time,
got my [Ab/Eb]finger on the [C#7+]button,
"Don't say [Ab/C]nothin' - just [Bb]lie there still
And I'll [Eb7]get you turned on just [Ab]fine."
Erogenous [F#]zones I [C#/F]love [Ab/Eb]you.
Wi[B]thout you, what would a [F#/Bb]poor boy do? [Ab7]
[Ab7]Touch and go with 1-6.
Bit of trouble in zone No. 7.
Gotta remember all of my tricks.
There's heaven ahead in No. 11!
Getting [Ab7/Eb]crucial res[Bb7]ponses, di[C#]lation of the pupils.
"[D]Honey get [D/C]hip! It's [Bb]time to unzip,
to unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip. Whipee!"
( Ab Ab/G Fm7 Ab/Eb C#7+ Ab/C Bb Eb7 Ab ) 2x
[Ab]I'm [Ab/G]counting out [Fm7]time,
re[Ab/Eb]action none to [C#7+]happy,
Please don't s[Ab/C]lap me,
I'm a [Bb]red blooded male and the [Eb7]book said I could not [Ab]fail.
I'm [Ab/G]counting out [Fm7]time,
I got u[Ab/Eb]nexpected dist[C#7+]ress
from my [Ab/C]mistress,
I'll get my [Bb]money back from the [Eb7]bookstore right a[Ab]way.
Erongenous [F#]zones I [C#/F]question [Ab/Eb]you
Wi[B]thout you, what would a [F#/Bb]poor boy [Ab]do?
Wi[B]thout you, what would a [F#/Bb]poor boy [Ab]do?
Wi[B]thout you, mankind [F#/Bb]handkinds thru' the [Ab]blues.[C#m]
