Illegal Smile

	  C                   G        F                   C  
When I woke up this morning, things were lookin' bad  
F                C              G    F        C  
Seems like total silence is the only friend I have  
G                 F                 C       F   C  
A bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down... and won  
           G                       F                   C      F  C  
And it was twelve o'clock before I realized that I was havin' no fun  
        G           C                 F      G    C  
Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality  

F C And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile G C It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while F C Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone G F C No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun
Last time I checked my bankroll, well it was gettin' thin Sometimes it seems like the bottom is the only place I've been Chased a rainbow down a one-way street... dead end And all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality Chorus I sat down in my closet with all my overalls Just tryin' to get away from all the years inside these walls Dreamed the police heard everything I thought... what then? Well I went to court and the judge's name was Hoffman Ah, but fortunately I have the key to escape reality Chorus F C F C F C well done, hotdog bun, my sisters a nun.
