   Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade

Well, earlier I'd been talking stuff in a violent room
 
Em7                      A9/E
   Fightin' with lover's past
 
Am7/E                           B/E

   Dorothy laughed

She said - "It sound like a real man tome (you're kinda cute)
 
             B/E                    Em
You're kinda cute, you wanna take a bath?" (Do you wanna, do you wanna?) ... Bath?
 
 
VERSE 4
 
              Am9/E                    E7
Oh, I said - "Cool, but I'm leaving my pants on (What you say?)
 
        Em7                      A9/E
Cuz I'm kinda going with someone"
 
            Am7/E                       B/E
She said - "Sound like a real man to me
 
                 Em
Mind if I turn on the radio?"

And it was Joni singing, "Help me, I think I'm falling"

    Em7                               A9/E
An affliction brought on by a witch's curse
 
        Am7/E
Dorothy made me laugh (ha ha, ha ha)
 
                        B/E                      Em
I felt much better so I went back to the violent room
