Vietnamese Baby


E                C
When I'm getting home to you
E                   C
I gotta show you what I can do
E                       C              E         C
But everything connects and that ain't nowhere
      F                  E                          D
Well, maybe they're just giving you all you've ever wanted
    F         E                         D
And maybe you never ever know what that was
    F     E                      D
And maybe you're just finding it out now
       A                       B
With a Vietnamese baby on your mind


E          C
Technology satellite, well
E             C
What's wrong today and why was
E            C            E                    C
Everyone so busy they've forgotten why they're playing
              F            E                        D
That he said, what's wrong today is what wrong with you
          F           E              D
You're so solid, busy solid, that's all you do
       A                       B
With a Vietnamese baby on your mind
                       E             C
Your pretty little mind

(interlude with drum rolls and stuff)

E           C
Match me a slingshot with
E                C
Every lightbulb queen and I gotta
E             C                E             C
Show you more mustard gas than any girl ever seen
             F                   E                      D
Since I been blastin', I've been blowin' up and bangin' away

You've got to bang it away
F                 E                D
You've got, baby, such a fabulous game
F              E                D
But I've gotta come so down to play
        A                      B
With a Vietnamese baby on your mind
                      E           C
Your pretty little mind
                      E           C
Your pretty little mind



E                C

       E C         E         C
No no no baby no nowhere
                    E      C
It just won't do no no...no
                         E         C
I'm talking about your overkill
                    E          C
Talking bout your overkill
                          E         C
Got to shout about your overkill
               E   C              E     C
Now that it's over, now that it's over
