Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on Loose In The City

 

The chord progression to this song is:

        C, F, C, G, C

 

†††††††††† C

Man I like to sit and think about the way I like to sit and think

F

About the things I like to sit and think about

C††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Donít stop me now cuz I think Iím thinkin'

 

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

Some people think that we canít think on our own

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††C

So they try to do it for us in our home

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

On the TV set and the radio

 

†††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††† C

They tell us lies like socialize and idolize, realize, nationalize

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

And rationalize and specialize just for you

 

††††††††† C

And I like to think that when you think of someone

††††††††††††††† F

That that someone thinks of you

††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††C

So I wrote this song to let you know that Iím thinking of you too

 

††††††††† C

And I like to sit and think about the way I like to sit and think

F

About the things I like to sit and think about

C††††††††††††††††††† G†† ††††††††††††††††††††††††C

Donít stop me now cuz I think Iím thinkin'

 

††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

I think God is my vacuum cleaner and I am a heavy shag

††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

He sucks all of my cares away and puts 'em in his Hefty Bag, yep

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† ††C

His bag of wonder - His bag of hope is better than a bottle of booze

††††††††††† G

And itís better than a bag of dope, yippee

 

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††F

I am a chosen particle - Heís got extra suction power

††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

To take me from this dirty world up to his ivory tower, eureka

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

You might live in other bags - You might talk with other shags

††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

But you may be a shallow shag with Satanís carpet cleaning tag

 

††††††††††††††††† C

And thereís one little, two little, three little Indians

F

Four little, five little, six little Indians

C

Seven, eight, nine little, ten thousand Indians

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Starvin' on government land

 

†††††††† C

They took the sheep, they took the horses

F

Then they changed the riverís courses

C†††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

Now theyíre turning forest into sand

 

††††††††††††††††††††† C

And there are one little, two little, three rebel Indians

F

Four little, five little, six rebel Indians

C

Seven, eight, nine little, ten thousand Indians

G††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Shotguns in their hands

 

†††††††††† C

Man I like to sit and think about the way I like to sit and think

F

About the things I like to sit and think about

C††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Donít stop me now cuz I think Iím thinkin'

 

C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

But there are some people think that we canít think on our own

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

So they try to do it for us in our home

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

On the TV set and the radio

 

C

††††††††††††††† F

That that somebody thinks of you

†††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††C
