Brian Wilson

Bare Naked Ladies

 

(CAPO 3)

 

G         D                       Am7                             G        D                               Bm7          Am7

Drove downtown in the rain, 9:30 on a Tuesday night, just to check out the late night record shop.

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane.  But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.

 

It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning, a matter of fact.  You can call me Pavlov's dog.

CHORUS:

G           D                 Am7

Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

                G        D                           Em     Em/C   Em/C#  Em/C

Well I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

Am7                     D                     F               Em          Am7                 D                                G          F    Am

                   D                         F                     Em                  Am7            D                        G

Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun, whoa-whoa-oh-oh And singing “Fun, Fun, Fun”.

 

CHORUS

 

Am   E7

 

   Am                      E7               Am

I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds

And though I was very heavy I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground

I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground

Somebody help me (I couldn't see the ground)

Somebody help me (I couldn't see the ground)

Somebody help me, because I'm

 

CHORUS

 

Drove downtown in the rain, 9:30 on a Tuesday night.

Just to check out the late night record shop.

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane.

But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.
