This is the basic chords to the rythym and full lyrics.

Now everybody tells me you're the dog's best friend
I'm the cat's meow since I don't know when
I'm an instigator from a dead man's town
So when did the whole world turn upside down
When did you change your mind, when did you lose the juice
Now where'd you get your attitude
When did you give it away, what did the old man say
How many babies did you kick today
How many nights can the full moon shine
How many bottles of water can you turn to wine
When the blood has flowed against the tides of time
And the water flows forever

Now I'm gonna build a boat, I'm gonna make it float
'Cause I'm setting the pace for a faraway place
Gonna set the sail, gonna catch some wind
And the big red sky's gonna be my only friend
With a boat for two, just me and you
You can be my teacher, I can teach you too
Gonna try a few things that I've never done
Maybe talk to the fishes, maybe have some fun
Maybe shake my pale fist at the angry stars
While I dance a jig under the eyes of Mars

When we get to an island were the walls have a bend
We can get down and dirty in our animal skins
And I'll stand with my thing hanging out in the wind
Where the water's sweet like honey


I've been feeling a chill from the east wind blew
It's been creeping up slow, have you felt it too?
Did you notice the look? Have you felt the feel?
Did it make you blush when the piggy squealed
Have you heard what they say, did you read the news
Said old man's coming home a-singin' them blues
Gonna whack your fanny, gona tan you hide
Make your ears turn red, make you run and cry

How many children gonna lose their minds
How many crying ghosts will be left behind
When the dead start walking and the full moon shines...

Now everybody scream to the heavens above
And everybody dance to the sounds of love
Won't you clack your teeth, won't you smack your hands
Won't you dig your little heads right out of the sand
Won't you jiggle your butt, won't you wave your arms
Won't you look like you just came off of the farm
Won't you stop your fighting for a second or two
Won't you help your neighbor, won't you do your due
Won't you taste the sugar, won't you eat that cake
Won't you get your ugly mug right out of my face
Won't you tell your brothers and your sisters tonight,
That you tasted the water and the water was right
Wont you taste the sugar, won't you dance the dance
Won't you wake up please, come on out of your trance

Everybody make believe that you've  disappeared,
for a second or two,  Gonna feel so queer,
and you left behind all your rage and fear

And it made you feel like water
