F, C, and A's are barre chords

[F]This here is the place where I will [C]stay in
There [F]isn't a number, you can call the pay phone
[C]Let it ring a long long long long [F]time
If I don't pick up, hang up, [Am]call back, let it [C]ring some more,  [F]Ohhhh[C]hhh...
If [F]I don't pick up, pick up, the sidewinder [Am]sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a [C]coil
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her

[C]Ohhhh[Em].....(Play using above riff)

There are [F]scratches all around the [F]coin slot
Like a heart beat [C]baby trying to wake up
[F]But this machine can only [C]swallow money
you can't lay a patch by computer design
[F]Just a lot of stup[Am]id, stupid s[C]igns
[F]Tell her (y[C]odeled)
[F]Tell her she can kiss my [C]ass and laugh and say that you were [F]only kidding
That way she'll know that it was re[Am]ally, really, really, really me me[C]
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her[C] [Em]

Baby, [F]instant soup doesn't really grab me
Today [C]I need something more sub, stop, sub, sub, substantial
[F]A can of beans or black eyed peas, some Nes[C]cafe and ice
[F]Candy bar, a fallen star, or a reading [Am]from Doctor Suess[C]

[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her[C] [Em]

Bridge:
(*During the bridge, Am and Bm are played as A barres, and the picking 
pattern is like this:

e-[Bm]--------2------|[Bm]---------2------|[Am]---------0------|[Am]---------0------| B-------------3--|-------------3--|-------------1--|-------------1--| G----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------| D-----4----------|-----4----------|-----2----------|-----2----------| A-2--------------|-2--------------|-0--------------|-0--------------| E----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
The C below is picked in the same pattern, i.e. A str, D str, e str, B str*)

[Bm]The cat in the hat came back, [Am]wrecked a lot of havoc [Bm]on the way.
Always had a smile, never reason to [Am]pretend,
Their worl[Bm]d has flat backgrounds and little [Am]need to sleep but to [C]dream
The sidewinder [Em]sleeps on his back

[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her
[D]Call when you try to [G]wake her up, [C]call whe[G]n you try [Am]to wake her[C]   [Em]    (*)
(*But now this transition thing changes to what we'll call the New Transition*)
e[C]---------0-----|-[Em]0-------0-----|
B-------------1-|-0-------0-----|
G---------------|-0-------0-----|
D-----2---------|-2-------2-----|
A-3-------------|-2-------2-----|
E---------------|-0-------2-----|

[D]////[G]//[C]//[Am]/
[D]////[G]//[C]//[Am]/
[D]////[G]//[C]//[Am]/
[C]You got a boogie woogie gr[Em]oove on th[D]is one
