Verse 1:
   A             G6/A
        In the morning we arise and
        D                  C
        Start the day the same old way
           A             G6
        As yesterday the day before and
        Fmaj7            E
        All in all it's just a day like
        A                E
        All the rest so do your best with
        A               E
        Chewing gum and it is oh so
        C               E
        Waiting on the sun
[repeat intro]
Verse 2:
   Down on Go-stop Boulevard it
        Never fails to bring me down
        The sirens and the accidents and
        For a laugh there's Plastic Nancy
        She's real fancy with her children
        They'll go far, she
        Buys them toys to
        Keep in practice
        Waiting on the war
Bridge 1:
   Am                D                     [2X]
        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /
   Em     Fmaj7   G       D
        I feel shivers in my spine
                 Fmaj7           Em
        When the iceman, yes his ice is melting
        G                  D
        Won't be there on time
        G                D
        Hope he finds a rhyme
        G               E [N.C.]
        For his little mind
   [repeat intro chords, 2X]
Bridge 2:
   F#m    D   A
        I can see you
        C  Em      F#m
          With no (hands)
                D    A
        Eyes I need you
        C   Em        [Am]
           You're my (heart)
   Am   Cmaj7    G Am
