Lyrics and Chords

[Electric Company]

You're wearing your squeaky shoes
And right there taking a snooze
Is a tiger, so how do you walk on by?
Silently ... silently ... silent ... L-Y

(Am) / Dm E7 Am - / / F - - - C - E7 - / 
   / F - - - C - - - Dm Dm6 E7 - Am - Bb7 E7 Am - - - /

You're a secret agent man
Who's after the secret plan
How do you act so they don't know you're as spy?
Normally, normally, normal L-Y

At an eating contest you boast
That you can eat the most
How do you down your fiftieth piece of pie?
Eagerly, eagerly, eager L-Y

On the lake your boat upset
And your clothes got soaking wet
How do you stand and wait for them to dry?
D-d-d-d-d patiently, d-d-d-d-d patiently, patient L-Y

In the public library
You fall and you hurt your knee
But the sign says, "quiet please," so how can you cry?
Quietly, quietly, quiet L-Y

As you walk along the street
A porcupine you meet
How do you shake his hand when he says hi?
Carefully, carefully, careful L-Y

You enter a very dark room
And sitting there in the gloom
Is Dracula! Now how do you say goodbye?
Immediately, immediately, immediate L-Y
Bye Bye!
