Listening to the big guy's new CD laying in bed

The one his producer thinks he never shoulda made

But it gets me going, gets me into the shower

While I'm shocked to awake at this early hour

And you're gone, it was time to fly

And all that's left is the fact we tried

D
Your gone now, baby bye bye
Them guys from Orange County, man can they wail It shakes my brain and shakes my tail New girl on top of me, will this work out? I retreat for the kitchen and sort it all out And you're gone, it was time to fly And all that's left is the fact we tried So thanks for the tunes and thanks for the times Your gone now, baby bye bye
D
A
You left your keys on the table
G
D
And on the bed you left a rose
A
G
And a note, "My CDs won't fit in the car
A
You can keep 'em, I suppose"
This disc was left out in the sun, it's warped and it hisses I can't place the voice and the insert's missing I turn off the phone so you don't call, it's alright Maybe I won't listen to nothing tonight And you're gone, it was time to fly And all that's left is the fact we tried So thanks for the tunes and thanks for the times Your gone now, baby bye bye And you're gone, it was time to fly And all that's left is the fact we tried So thanks for the tunes and thanks for the times Your gone now, baby bye bye

I'll be making love with my baby in the Chelsea hotel
I told you to meet me at eight o'clock I said I' d be drinking at the bar I drove between Newark and La Guardia Trying to return a rented car We keep missing connections today But tomorrow would be just as well I gotta go make love with my baby in the Chelsea hotel I've been walking all around your neighborhood My former love It seems as far away and as sad to me As those rain clouds above I hope you're happy in what ever you're doing I hope your doing well And please don't try to contact me at the Chelsea hotel
Cm
Gm
I was starting to think The world was going to end when the calendar turns But now you're here I see the future baby
Cm
Ab
D
And they can let the calendar burn
New love is beautiful But new love is sad New love brings back all the old loves That you've ever had I put out a casting call And you cast a spell And we're practicing for the millennium making love at the Chelsea hotel So who knows what tomorrow brings But I know where I'll be waking up Let's just listen to our breath tonight And the breeze through the window that you opened up Can you feel our hearts beating Which one's yours, which one's mine, who can tell Just another day of making love at the Chelsea hotel Spend all day and night making love at the Chelsea hotel



Oh Sister

G
They say you taught me how to talk
C
I bet you wish you taught me how to stop
Em
You're far away now
D
I wish I could take a walk with you someplace
C
You explained me to our parents
Em
English wasn't their first language
Am
They spoke German
C
Hated Germans
D
Confusing times
G
Oh sister
C
Down midwest backseat bumpy streets
Em
You sang my Beatles songs with me
Am
I sang your Broadway melodies
D
Bad harmonies
C
And where would Willie Mays have been
Em
without Jackie Robinson?
Am
And who can say what I'd been
D
G
Without you to lead the way
After I showed some guys I could drink You picked me off the lawn, I think And led me to the kitchen sink Where I got rid of it Some nights I lay awake in awe As squinting through the dark I saw You peeling off your teenage bra The door slightly ajar Oh sister You lived just across the hall For eighteen summers Eighteen falls Until you went away to that Weird college in Wisconsin And where would Willie Mays have been without Jackie Robinson? And who can say what I'd been Without you to lead the way
Em
D
Trust yourself
C
G
And you can do anything
Am
D
This I give to you
May your heart purr like a bumblebee May all your backyards have a tree May you always be HIV negative I hope you meet a nice guy who Treats women better than I do I don't even care if he's a Jew or not Oh sister I remember in the temple hall At our dear father's funeral You sang like a nightingale One of his own songs And where would Willie Mays have been Without Jackie Robinson? And who can say what I'd been Without you to lead the way

I got big balls Big ol' balls Big as grapefruits Big as pumpkins Yes sir, yes sir And on my really good days They swell to the size of small dogs My balls are as big as small dogs Well, it ain't braggin' if it's true Yes sir, yes sir It ain't braggin' if it's true Mohammed Ali said that Back when he was a young man Back when he was Casius Clay Before he fought too many fights And left his brain inside the ring Sometimes I wish I was Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods Sometimes I wish I was Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods I got a friend whose goal in life Was to one day go down on Madonna That's all he wanted That was all To one day go down on Madonna And when my friend was thirty-four He got his wish in Rome one night He got to go down on Madonna In Rome one night in some hotel And ever since he's been depressed 'Cause life is shit from here on in And all our friends just shake their heads And say, "Too soon, too soon, too soon, He went down on Madonna too soon Too young, too young, too soon, too soon" And it ain't braggin' if it's true Yes sir, yes sir It ain't braggin' if it's true Mohammed Ali said that Back when he was Casius Clay Before he fought too many fights And left his brain inside the ring Sometimes I wish I was Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods Sometimes I wish I was Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods If certain girls don't look at you It means that they like you a lot If other girls don't look at you It just means they're ignoring you How can you know, how can you know? Which is which, who's doing what? I guess that you can ask 'em Which one are you baby? Do you like me or are you ignoring me? Do you like me or are you ignoring me? Do you like me or are you ignoring me? And all you need to do that Is one good pair of big balls Balls as big as grapefruits Balls as big as pumpkins Balls as big as mine But even though my balls are big Sometimes I wish they were bigger Even bigger Big as the wheels on tractors Big as the golden arches Big as the Golden Gate Bridge Big as the state of Kansas Big as Mars and Jupiter Big as the swing of Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods
