"I want to be a clone!"
By Steve Taylor. Copyright 1982 birdwing music/cherry lane music.
transposed by Craig and Terry Barnes.

Intro: Bb (strum fast on Bass)
        D, Eb, E, F, Eb, D (repeat 4 times on lead guitar.)

Bb                                  F
I'd gone through so much other stuff 
       Ab                       Eb
that walking down the aisle was tough,
      Gb                   Db              Bb
but now I know it's not enough, I want to be a clone.
  Bb                    F
I asked the lord into my heart,
        Ab                     Eb
they said that was the way to start,
      Gb                      Db                 Bb
but now you've got to play the part. I want to be a clone.

            Eb                               Bb
Chorus: Be a clone and kiss conviction goodnight.
            Eb                           Bb
             Clonliness is next to Godliness, right?
             Eb                           D
             I'm greatful that they showed the way,
                      Db                 C
             Cause I could never know the way,
                   B                               Bb
             To serve him on my own, I want to be a clone.

        Bb                   F
They told me that I'd fall away, 
    Ab              Eb
unless I follow what they say, 
        Gb                      Db        Bb
Who needs the bible anyway? I want to be a clone.
        Bb                    F
Their language it was new to me,
      Ab                    Eb
but christianese got through to me, 
      Gb                 Db           Bb
now I can speak it fluently. I want to be a clone.

Repeat Chorus.

Ah, I kind of wanted to tell my friends and people

about him, you know?         WHAT?!!!!!
          Eb                    Bb
You're still a babe, you have to grow, 
C                  Db
give it twenty years or so,
D                             Eb
Cause if you want to be one of his,
      E                            F
you gotta act like one of us!


      Bb                 F
So now I see the whole design, 
       Ab                Eb
my church is an assembly line, 
      Gb                        Db               Bb
the parts are there, I'm feeling fine, I want to be a clone.
     Bb                       F
I've learned enough to stay afloat,
     Ab                  Eb
but not so much I rock the boat,
     Gb                           Db     
I'm glad they shoved him down my throat.
I want to be a clone.


Everybody must get cloned!
Probably one of Steves' best songs, a fav any way, and fun to play around with.
