I got this song in while seeing MTV's "Two Hit Wonders".
I think it sounds pretty right.

"The Hook" by Blues Traveler 
 from the album Four 

A          E             F#m   C# 
It doesn't matter what I say 
D          A             D   E 
So long as I sing with inflection 
A              E                 F#m   C# 
That makes you feel that I'll convey 
D          A               D   E 
Some inner truth of vast reflection 
A             E          F#m    C# 
But I've said nothing so far 
D              A        D          E 
And I can keep it up as long as it takes 
A            E              F#m    C# 
And it don't matter who you are 
D       A                D                      E   
If I'm doing my job then it's your resolve that breaks 
[ Tab from: ]
            A    E          F#m     C# 
Because the hook brings you back 
D       A              D     E 
I ain't tellin' you no lie 
    A    E          F#m    C# 
The hook brings you back  
D  A            D      E 
On that you can rely 

There is something amiss 
I am being insincere 
In fact I don't mean any of this 
Still my confession draws you near 
To confess the issue I refer 
To familiar heroes from long ago 
No matter how much Peter loved her 
What made the Pan refuse to grow 

Was that the hook brings you back 
I ain't tellin' you no lie 
The hook brings you back  
On that you can rely 

--Popper's Harmonica Solo-- 

Suck it in suck it in suck it in 
If you're Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn 
Make a desperate move or else you'll win 
And then begin 
To see 
What you're doing to me this MTV is not for free 
It's so PC it's killing me 
So desperately I'll sing to thee 
Of love 
Sure but also rage and hate and pain and fear of self 
And I can't keep these feelings on the shelf 
I've tried well no in fact I've lied 
Could be financial suicide but I've got too much pride inside 
To hide or slide 
I'll do as I decide and let it ride until I've died  
And only then shall I abide this tide 
Oc catchy little tunes 
Of hip three minute ditties 
I wanna bust all your balloons  
I wanna burn all of youre cities 
To the ground I've found 
I will not mess around 
Unless I play then hey 
I will go on all day hear what I say 
I have a prayer to pray 
That's really all this was 
And when I'm feeling stuck and need a buck  
I don't rely on luck because... 

The hook brings you back 
I ain't tellin' you no lie 
The hook brings you back  
On that you can rely
