Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]

{Intro - spoken}

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. Electric word, life. It means forever and that's a mighty long time. But I'm here to tell you there's something else - the afterworld. A world of never-ending happiness. You can always see the sun, day or night. So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know the one, Dr. Everything'll-Be-All-right, instead of asking him how much of your time is left, ask him how much of your mind, baby. 'Cause in this life, things are much harder than in the afterworld. This life you're on your own. And if de-elevator tries to bring you down, go crazy - punch a higher floor.

/ E... C#m7... E... / E A - - / / 

If you don't like
The world you're living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends
You see I called my old lady
For a friendly word
She picked up the phone, dropped it on the floor
Ahh-ahh is all I heard
Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down, oh, no, let's go

/ E A - - / : / B - - - E(iv) E B - /

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Let's look for the purple banana
'Til they put us in the truck, let's go

/ E A - - / / / / 
   (First time, / E - A - E - A - E - A - E - A - /)

We're all excited
But we don't know why
Maybe it's 'cause
We're all gonna die
And when we do
What's it all for
You better live now before the grim reaper
Come knocking on your door, tell me
Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down, oh, no, let's go


C'mon baby, let's get nuts
Yeah, crazy
Let's go crazy

/ E - - - B - - - A - - - / F# - - - / E A - - E A - - /

Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down
Oh, no, let's go
     Go crazy
I said let's go crazy
     Go crazy
Let's go, let's go, go, let's go

/ B - - - E(iv) E B - / E A - - / / /

Dr. Everything'll-Be-All-Right
Will make everything go wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill
Hang tough children
He's coming, he's coming, coming

/ E A - - / / / / E - A - E - A - E - A - E - A - /

Take me away

/ E - - - /
