INTRO: G C D

VERSE 1:
G                G C               C
Up in the morning, work like a dog
     D                  D        C'   B'   G'
It's better than sittin', like a bump on a log
G                    G    C                C
Mind all your manners, be quiet as a mouse
    D                    D           C'  B'   G'
Someday you'll own a home, that's as big as a house
G             G    C                 C
I know a fella, he eats like a horse
D                   D           C'  B'   G'
Knocks his old balls, round the old golf course
G                      G         C                C
You oughta see his wife, she's a cute little dish
    D                    D     C'     B'     G'
She smokes like a chimney, and drinks like a fish

CHORUS:
          G                                 C
There's a big old goofy man, dancin' with a big old goofy girl
D                 C             G
Oooh baby, it's a big old goofy world

VERSE 2:
                  G       C                C
Elvis had a woman, with a head like a rock
  D                  D     C'      B'    G'
I wish I had a woman, that made my knees knock
                         G    C               C
She'd sing like an angel, and eat like a bird
    D                 D           C'    B'     G'
And if I wrote a song, she'd know every single word

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL: play Verse 2

VERSE 3:
                  G C                      C
Kiss a little baby, give the world a smile
    D                  D C'        B'     G'
And if you take an inch, give them back a mile
                           G         C                 C
Cause if you lie like a rug, and you don't give a damn
     D             D    C'    B'   G'
Your never gonna be, as happy as a clam
                  G C                      C
Sitting in a hotel, trying to write a song
   D                    D        C'  B' G'
My head is just as empty, as the day is long
                        G   C                          C
Why it's clear as a bell, I should have gone to school
       D             D            C'       B'   G'
I'd be wise as an owl, instead of stubborn as a mule

CHORUS
D                 C             G
Oooh baby, it's a big old goofy world
