  I been Ayn Randed, nearly branded
F                    |            |
Communist, 'cause I'm left-handed.

  And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,
   |F                  |              |
And all my wealth won't buy me health,

 So I smoke a pint of tea a day.

         |                 |F

He's not the same as you and me.
  |                   |F        |
He doesn't dig poetry. He's so unhip that
            |G        |                           |C            |
When you say Dylan, he thinks you're talkin' about Dylan Thomas,
               |
Whoever he was.
   |F               |G       |
The man ain't got no culture,
         |          |
But its alright, ma,
                  |C      |  |  |
Everybody must get stoned.

I been Mick Jaggered, been silver daggered.
F           |Eb        F          |G    |
Andy Warhol, won't you please come home?
      |C                  |C7              |
I been mothered, fathered, aunt and uncled,
    |F                  |       
Been Roy Halee'd and Art Garfunkel'd.
 |G              |                    |C     |  |
I just discovered somebody's tapped my phone.
