Intro:  D#-A#-C-G-G#-A-A#  2 x's

VERSE 1

D#
There's something crazy, something strange about

    G#
The way I'm lazy and how I go about

A#
Giving my time and how I reason

   C                               G#    A#
Do all my problems have to do with how I reason?

D#
Don't feel bad, we haven't figured out

      G# 
Cause I'm not mad there's really no need to shout

A#
There's really no way you could have estimated

     C                              G# A#
That you would ever in your life be so frustrated


CHORUS:

G                    C
If you knew what was good for you

      G#                            A#
You'd lock me up and throw away the key

G                        C
You don't need me no you never will

    G#                  A#  
You never did as far as I can tell


VERSE 2

D#
Should I wake up and explain myself to you

   G#
Or should I not care and sleep the whole day through

A#
Finding the sense in everything

        C                            G#      A#
Is like going thru my head to find a diamond ring.

D#
Living day by day is all I can say

G#
Something someone to believe in might be the other way

A#
We can't know for sure until we open the door

  C                               G#   A#
Inherent choices, choices I can't take anymore


CHORUS:

G                    C
If you knew what was good for you

      G#                            A#
You'd lock me up and throw away the key

               G         C
You don't need me no you never will

    G#                  A#
You never did as far as I can tell

If you knew what was good for you

      G#                            A#
You'd lock me up and throw away the key

               G         C
You don't need me no you never will

    G#                  A#
