Telegraph Line

  		

G7 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
Dittle dittle dit dit! 

C                      E7 
There's a telegram for you, ma'am 
Am       F#dim  
And the message is clear 
F                         G 
It says there's something bugging you 
And buzzing in your ear 
C                        Am 
The results can be quite itchy 
F               Adim 
So what is your reply? 
F             G7           C 
Tell your arm to swat that fly! 
     F                   G 
Hey, there's a telegraph line 
        C  
You got yours and I got mine 
F               G       C  
It's called the nervous system 
F             G 
And everybody understands 
E7             Am  
Those telegram commands 
        F          G                C 
And you know that everybody better listen! 
C           E7 
The central nervous system 
   Am                F#dim 
Is the brain and the spine 
F                      G7 
The brain controls the system 
F                    C 
And the spine is the line 
                E7  
Telegrams come in 
               Am           F#dim 
To tell what's happening to you 
F                 G 
Then telegrams go out 
F                 C 
To tell your body what to do 
G7 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
Gm7/5-  
Dit dittle dittle dit 
G7 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
C                  E7 
There's a telegram for you, sir 
       Am             F#dim 
Better read it on the spot 
F                  G 
It says your hand is near a stove 
F                 C  
That's very, very hot 
                         Am  
The results can be quite painful 
                        F#dim 
And there's no time to think 
F                G          F                  C 
Quick, pull that hand away, and get it to the sink! 
F 
There's a telegraph line 
        C  
You got yours and I got mine 
F               G        C 
It's called the nervous system 
F             G 
And everybody understands 
      E7       Am 
Those telegram commands 
    F                  G           C  
And you know that everybody better listen! 
                E7 
Your peripheral nerves 
     Am     F#dim  
They go all out 
F                G 
Delivering those messages 
            C  
Your senses send out 
                  E7   
From your hearing and touch 
        Am                  F#dim 
To your sight and taste and smell 
F                   G  
They let your brain react 
F                   G      C  
To all the messages they tell 
G7 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
Gm7/5- 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
G7 
Dit dittle dittle dit 
C                      E7 
There's a telegram for you, kid 
         Am          F#dim 
And it's at an awful time 
   F                  G  
It says you've got to go on stage 
    F  
And you forgot your lines 
C                  E7  
You're going to be embarrassed 
             Am           F#dim  
Because this telegram's a rush 
F                         G              C 
Your heart starts beating faster and you blush! 
     F                   G 
Hey, there's a telegraph line 
        C  
You got yours and I got mine 
F               G       C  
It's called the nervous system 
              E7  
And everybody understands 
      Am       F#dim  
Those telegram commands 
    F                  G           C  
And you know that everybody better listen! 
    E7 
The autonomic system 
      Am      F#dim  
Has a hold of you 
F               G  
Controlling automatically 
     F               G  
Some things that you do 
     C             E7 
Your breathing and your heartbeat 
     Am             F#dim 
Just go on naturally 
    F                        G      F   G      C 
And when you're scared, your nerves rev up the speed!
