Verse 1: 
             A           D                Em         
There's a destination a little up the road from the habitations and the towns we know
   A       Em      D           Bm           A
A place we saw the lights turn low with the jig-saw jazz and the get-fresh flow
       A              D        Em 
Pulling out jives and jamboree handouts two turntables and a microphone
   A       Em    D    Bm    A
Bottles and cans just clap your hands just clap your hands


Chorus 1: 

E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone

["take me home in my elevator bones!"]

["that was a good drum break!"]

Verse 2: 

              A          D             Em
Pick yourself up off the side of the road with your elevator bones and your whip-flash tones
  A       Em    D         Bm        A
Members only hyponotizers move through the womb like ambulance drivers
           A               D          Em
Shine your shoes with your microphone blues here suits with your parachute fruits
             A     Em    D    Bm        A
Passing the dutchie from coast to coast let the man get loose while I rock the most


Chorus 2: 

E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone


Bridge: 

Horn break: G E G E 

["What about those who swing both ways? AC-DC's?]


[Play Main riff over a lengthy instrumental break]


Chorus 3: 

E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone


Horn Break: G E G E

["Oh, dear me. Make Out City is a two-horse town"]

Verse 3 (same as verse 1):
 
             A           D                Em         
There's a destination a little up the road from the habitations and the towns we know
   A       Em      D           Bm           A
A place we saw the lights turn low with the jig-saw jazz and the get-fresh flow
       A              D        Em 
Pulling out jives and jamboree handouts two turntables and a microphone
   A       Em    D    Bm    A
Bottles and cans just clap your hands just clap your hands


Chorus 4: 

E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
E                    A
Where it's at! I got two turntables and a microphone
