transcribed by Ben Whitlock (whitty_bdbATyahoo.com) E5 E7M Ebm A I kinda like the way you dot your "J"s C#m Abm C#m Abm With giant circles of naïveté C#m Abm E A B The kind of circles include everything E7M Ebm A Don't mean to damn you with the faintest praise C#m Abm C#m Abm It's just a symptom of the blithe age C#m Abm E A B Walter Lippmann, he would be amazed. Abm F#m So you've got some curb appeal Abm F#m But can you cook a three course meal? Abm F#m B Or are you just a present waiting to be opened up and parceled out again? Hey! Interlude B riff: e|-4-2-0-4-2-0-etc.----| B|---------------------| A Abm F#m E You are a gardenia, pressed A Abm F#m B in the campaign journal in the A Abm F#m E rucksack of an Afrikaner A Abm F#m B candidate for mild reform. E7M Ebm A It's like we're at a Ponzi scam-inar C#m Abm C#m Abm There's no escaping without a door prize C#m Abm E A B They're operating at significant loss.

Abm F#m So much for the three course meals. Abm F#m B 'Cause I am not a present waiting to be opened up and parceled out again. Hey! A Abm F#m E The torture of the Van Wyk A Abm F#m B Expressway at 5 p.m. on A Abm F#m E Friday gives you some idea of A Abm F#m B how rejection makes me feel. A Abm F#m E A Abm F#m B Well you are a gardenia, A Abm F#m E A Abm F#m B E You are a gardenia.
