Intro c c c g bb f c g bb f

C g bb f c g bb f
No more pretending now, the albatross is dying in it's nest c g
The company is crippling me, bb f am am
The worst trying to ruin the best, the best
Bb c

Maybe they think I'm a pet
F
Well I've got all the diseases g g g
I'm breaking out in sweat, you bet, because

The best kept secret in the we--est, hey the we--est

The boys and me are getting real well known around town
But every time we try to spread the action
Someone always brings it down, down
I ate the orange and I don't feel well
For them it's inconvenience for me it's hell
The geriatric staff think we're freaks
They couldn't sell kebabs to the greeks, the geeks
Inaction speaks, and

Chorus

Bridge
