Subject: Lyr Add: THE SQUARE SONG (from Homer & Jethro)
From: Gene
Date: 10 Apr 02 - 01:54 PM

Another 2-chord song by the Masters of Madness.

THE SQUARE SONG
Recorded by: Homer & Jethro

[1] All my kids are tellin' me
Like, daddy you're a square
How come you don't dig rock & roll
And boys with stringy hair
They bring the strangest records home
They play 'em night and day
I've had a Lovin' Spoonful
Of this music that they play

[5] One group is called the Animals
And one is called the Goons
And upon my word one group I heard
Was called the Electric Prunes
[1] There's Beatles, Byrds, and Turtles
And I'd really like to know
Do they make records in the zoo
Or in the studio?

[1] Now I ain't runnin' music down
But friends, it seems to me
That it's about as run down
As it's ever gonna be
I wonder will it ever be
The way it was before
Will plain old people
Ever make a record anymore

[5] There's Rolling Stones and Critters
The Shadows and the Seeds
Detergents and the Brass Rings
The Spyders and the Weeds
[1] And now my kids are tellin' me
The Monkees are the rage
I wonder if the Monkees make
Their records in a cage

[5] Bridge turn around

[1] But now I've changed my attitude
At last, I've seen the light
I listen to this crazy music
Mornin', noon and night
I bought my dog a guitar
Bought my cat a drum and snare
Now if they'll learn to sing
I'll be a millionaire.

    THE SQUARE SONG
    Recorded by: Homer & Jethro

    Like, daddy you're a square

    They play 'em night and day
    I've had a LOVIN' SPOONFUL
    Of this [5] music that they [1] play

    1ST BRIDGE:
    One [5] group is called the ANIMALS
    And one is called the GOONS
    And upon my word one group I heard
    Was [2-7] called the ELECTRIC [5] PRUNES

    There's [1] BEATLES, BYRDS, and TURTLES
    And I'd really like to know
    Do they make records in the zoo
    Or [5] in the studi-[1]-o?

    Now [1] I ain't runnin' music down

    Ever make a [5] record any-[1]-more

    2ND BRIDGE:
    There's [5] ROLLING STONES and CRITTERS
    The SHADOWS and the SEEDS
    DETERGENTS and the BRASS RINGS
    The [2-7] SPYDERS and the [5] WEEDS

    And [1] now my kids are tellin' me
    The MONKEES are the rage
    I wonder if the MONKEES make
    Their [5] records in a [1] cage

    But [1] now I've changed my attitude
    At last, I've seen the light
    I listen to this crazy music
    [5] Mornin', noon and [1] night

    I [1] bought my dog a guitar
    Bought my cat a drum and snare
    Now if they'll learn to sing
    I'll [5] be a million-[1]-aire.
