INTRO
Em
B   A#   A#   A
 
VERSE
Em
There's a mad dog pulling at his chain
 
A hint of danger in his eye
Em
Alarm bells raging round his brain
                        B  A#  A#  A
And the chimney's broken in the sky
 
CHORUS
A
Wake up, wake up and smell the roses
C
Close your eyes and pray this wind don't change
A#
There's nothing but screams in the field of dreams
A#
Nothing but hope at the end of the road
A#
Nothing but gold in the chimney smoke
A#              B   A#  A#  A
Come on honey it's real money        
 
VERSE
Em
This is the room where they make the explosives
Em
Where they put your name on the bomb
Em
Here's where they bury the buts and the ifs
                            B   A#  A#   A
And scratch out words like right and wrong
 
CHORUS
A
Wake up, wake up and smell the phosphorus
C
This is the room we keep a human heir
A#
Don't ask don't tell it couldn't be lost for us
A#
A Little less cash in the stash in the cupboard
A#
At the bottom of the stair
 
B  A# A#  A
Money honey
 
INTERLUDE
Em
B  A#  A#  A
 
Em
B  A#  A#  A
 
CHORUS
A
Wake up, wake up and smell the bacon
C
Run your greasy fingers through her hair
B              A#       A       F#m
This is the life that you have taken
 
BRIDGE
F#m  C
 
VERSE
Em
Just a line in the captain's log
Em
Just a whine from a resident dog
Em
Another kid didn't make the grade
                  B   A#  A#  A
Come on honey it's a fair trade
 
CHORUS
A
Wake up, wake up and smell the roses
C
Throw a photo on the funeral pyre
A#
Now we can forget the threat she poses
A#
Girl you know you couldn't get much higher
 
OUTRO
B A# A# A
B A# A# A E
