A while ago someone posted a request for this, so here it is:
Intro(which is like the chorus)
Bb Eb | Bb Eb F| x4
G D Bb F
Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
C Cm Bb
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
G D Bb F
The sun was shining so I head for the park
C Cm Bb
With a bottle of tequila and a new pack of cigarrettes
I got a cousin, and sge got a friend
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment, I knock on the door
He wouldn't come out until he got paid
Bb Eb Bb Eb Bb Eb
Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
Bb Eb Bb Eb Eb Bb Eb
If they find out, you know that they'll never let me through
Bb Eb Bb Eb F Bb Eb Bb Eb F
Cos it's no fun being an illegal alien (X2 or however many you feel like)
Down at the office had to fill out the forms
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose
Up to the counter to see what they think, they said,
"It doesn't count, man, it aint written in ink"
I don't trust anybody, least not around here
Lead in to bridge (the keyboard solo)
Bb (2 bars) Ab(2 bars)
An illegal alien, OK
Bridge (background chords) whole phrase x2
G(no 3rd) 2 bars G(no 3)/C 2 bars G(no 3)/Eb 1 bar
G(no 3)/D G(no 3)/F half bar each
Consideration for your fellow man
C D7sus4
Would not hurt anybody, sure fits in with my plan
Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand
there's a bit where the chords are Bm | Em |D |A | x2
then back to pre-chorus and chorus. Lyrics I left out can be found
at uwp among other places.
