The Avengers (Superbad)

(E) Superbad tiger running with your brain,
Tucked beneath your arms like a devil’s train
When the (A) angels from the heavens meet the angels from the earth
We’ll (E) hide inside our cave aha that’s right of course

(F)And (F#)we (G) know, (G)we (Ab)ain’t (A) slow we’re the a(E)vengers

I’ve known lots of ladies and the ladies know me
I’ve been foxy roxy punctured and I’m funky born free
You can needle treacle kiss me with the honey from your mouth
But believe me I’m a bad moon bopster
And I’ll never come in your house

And we know, we ain’t slow we’re the avengers

Electric Slim and The Factory Hen

E Abm x 4

On the street, people call you a foxy girl,
Me, I’m loose, like a golden goose, you can have my juice.

(A)Steady on soldier, (B)watch what your doing to (Abm)my girl,
Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl.

Electric slim, and the factory hen man, they ain’t my kind,
At dead of night, like a fiery kite, you’ve been on my mind.

Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl,
Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl.

Frozen feet on a winter street, man that ain’t your fate,
Greased in sun, California fun, man that’s more my style

Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl,
Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl,
Steady on soldier, watch what your doing to my girl.

Rapids

(G)Your mama said, clean out your head boy, don’t lay nothing on my child
Your friends they said, Your heads in a noose boy lay some boogie on our minds
And we (D)stood like the rapids and (C)I was like a new born (G)child.

Your father said, clean out your head boy, go and kick cans along the street
Your father said, clean out your toes rose and go and lick some uncooked meat
And we stood like the rapids and I was like a new born child.

And we stood like the rapids and I was like a new born child.

Your mama said, my babe is not free son, but I’m loose about midnight
Your father said, Your sisters a groove boy, what I said it just ain’t right
But then I stood like the rapids and they were like a new born child.

Gonna drive me wild

Tenement Lady

A Em

Tenement (A)lady, stone drug mama, street hawk (D)stone heart,
Mind that swiftly (A)falls apart,
Sunset groove lid, sharp as a dog paw, pickle pump people,
Mind that swiftly falls apart

Count lurch hearse head, prince of the snick snacks
Got a pierced ear mind fear, of the sailors with their perfume,
Molly mouse dream talk, gin house milkshake,
She steal my magazines, she’s a lazer lipped (Em)lover, yeah

Tenement lady, stone drug mama, street hawk stone heart,
Mind that swiftly falls apart (Em)

(G)People on the street call out your (C)name, (Em)
(G)The giants and the dwarfs all call the (C)same, Oh (Em)yeah, oh (Am)yeah.

Oh my darling there are many ways to view you,
To me you’re almost like a hammer and screw,
People on the street call out your name,
The giants and the dwarfs all do the same, Oh yeah, oh yeah (C)oh.

Dressed in a bayleaf she’s trying to hide
I asked her name she said Germaine
