[Verse 1]

B                G#                  E               B
You only got one finger left and its pointing at the door
B                     G#               E                  B
And you're taking for granted what the Lord's made on the floor
B                     G#             E                   B
So I'm picking up the pieces and I'm putting them up for sale
B                              G#              E            B
Throw your meal ticket out the window put your skeletons in jail


[Chorus]

F#                                B
Cuz' Lord only knows its getting late
F#                                   B
Your senses are gone so don't you hesitate
E                  G#            B              G#
To give yourself a call let your bottom dollars fall
G                    F#             B
Throwing you two bit cares down the drain

[Verse 2]

B                G#         E                 B
Invite me to the seven seas like some seasick man
B               G#                  E                  B
You will do whatever you please and I'll do whatever I can
B        G#                 E                B
Titanic, fare thee well, my eyes are turning pink
B                   G#           E             B
Don't call when the new age gets old enough to drink


[Chorus]

F#                                B
Cuz' Lord only knows its getting late
F#                               B
Your senses are gone so don't hesitate
E              G#           B             G#
Move on up the hill there's nothing dead left to kill
G                     F#              B
Throwing your two bit cares down the drain

Odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay
     F#            E    B/D-A/F#/E
Just passing through

Odelay, odelay, odelay, odelay

To get me some pants
