Here's a nice little "folk" song from Zappa. Supposedly all events actually
took place. The song is played rather fast in a possible 2/4 time signature
with most chords taking two beats. Comments are welcome. Enjoy.

Jeff Henscheid

Let's Make the Water Turn Black--Mothers of Invention
From "We're only in it for the Money"

Intro Chords: C(major with added notes) Arpeggios on piano
VERSE 1:
C Em/B Am
Now believe me when I tell you that my song is really true
Dm Em Fm G
I want everyone to listen and believe
C Em/B Am
It's about some little people from a long time ago
Bb Eb Ab G
And all the things the neighbors didn't know
C Em/B Am
Early in the morning Daddy Dinky went to work
Dm Em Fm G
Selling lamps and chairs to San Ber'dino Squares
C Em/B Am
And I still remember mama with her apron and her pad
Bb Am D
Feeding all the boys in Ed's Cafe

CHORUS:
G F G Am
Whizzing and pasting and pooting through the day
G Am Bm D
Ronnie helping Kenny helping burn his poots away
G F Eb D
And all the while on a shelf in a shed
C Ab G
Kenny's little creature's on display

VERSE 2:
C Em/B Am
Ronnie saves his numies on a window in his room
Dm Em Fm G
A marvel to be seen; dysentery green
C Em/B Am
While Kenny and his buddies had a game out in the back
F G Am
LET'S MAKE THE WATER TURN BLACK!

BRIDGE:
Em A
We see them after school in a world of their own
Em A
To some it might seem creepy what they do...
Em C B
The neighbors on the right sat and watched them every night
Em D
I bet you'd do the same if they was you

(CHORUS)

VERSE 3:
C Em/B Am
Ronnie's in the Army now and Kenny's taking pills
Dm Em Fm G
Oh! How they yearn to see a bomber burn!
C Em/B Am
Color flashing, thunder crashing, dynamite machine!
F G Am
Wait till the fire turns green...
F G Am
Wait till the fire turns green...
F G A(major)
WAIT TILL THE FIRE TURNS GREEN!
