        Am                                                E A

     Am                                   D                 G  (whistle)
   I filled my head with Ice Cream and my heart with Sandra Dee
       Am                                                   E A

   Keep neat, stay clean, your harmony likes to be seen
      F7        Fdim      Bb             C        F
   Go West, get laid, and never join the fire brigade

      Am                                      E A
   In '68 while meditating on the cosmic bond
     Am                    D                   G
   I met a mystic Guru who waved the Wonderous Wand
     Am                                                      E A

   When fate has pricked your bubble and your silver cloud turned black
      Am                                                         E A
   To bite your shoe or drink hot glue will never bring you glee
      D                                   G              C   (slow
