A                                  D(VII)
That's the hand I use, well, never mind!

I been Phil Spectored, resurrected.
I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered.
Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay.
And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,
And all my wealth won't buy me health,
So I smoke a pint of tea a day.

D                            G
I knew a man, his brain so small,
                                A
He couldn't think of nothing at all.
                             D
He's not the same as you and me.
                  G
He doesn't dig poetry. He's so unhip that
             A                                            D
When you say Dylan, he thinks you're talking about Dylan Thomas,
                G
Whoever he was.
                     A
The man ain't got no culture,
But it's alright, ma,
Everybody must get stoned.

I been Mick Jaggered, silver daggered.
Andy Warhol, won't you please come home?
I been mothered, fathered, aunt and uncled,
Been Roy Haleed and Art Garfunkeled.
I just discovered somebody's tapped my phone.
