Hey Nonny Nonny  Violent Femmes

Song: Hey Nonny Nonny
Artist: Violent Femmes
Album: Why Do Birds Sing?
Transcribed by Ian Strung <>
Notes: Bass plays the root notes to all chords except where noted.
[C]Beauty sat bathing by a spring
where [F]fairest shades did hide her
[C]The winds blew calm the birds did sing
The c[F]ool streams ran beside her
My [C]wanton thoughts enticed mine eye
to [F]see what was for[Am]bidden
but [F]bet[C]ter [F]me[C]mo[F]ry said [G]fie
so [F]vain desire was [G]chidden
[C]Hey Nonny Nonny oh [F]Hey Nonny Nonny
Hey Nonny Nonny oh [C]Hey Nonny Nonny
[C]Into a slumber then I fell
when f[F]ond imagination
[C]Seemed to see but could not tell
the fe[F]ature or her fashion
[C]But even as babes in dreams do smile
and so[F]metimes fall a w[Am]eeping
so [F]I [C]aw[F]aked a[C]s w[F]ise this w[G]hile
as [F]when I fell a-sl[G]eeping
[C]Hey Nonny Nonny oh [F]Hey Nonny Nonny
Hey Nonny Nonny oh [C]Hey Nonny Nonny
(no chords, bass plays C E G pattern)
Spoken: hey man you down for doing something positive in the community?
No I don't think I'll ever do that again.
Well ain't you woried about doing the right thing?
Well I don't care if I hey nonny nonny nonny oh nonny nonny...
