The Ymca Down The Street From The Clinic

	  		A few notes: 
-This is the first song I've tabbed by ear so it may be a little off.  
-The 'E' chord is played up on the 7th fret except for in the Chorus. Then it is (02210x). 
-The little solo is probably off but it's definitely close and good enough to work with. 
-Go buy Metropole, it is and will be the best album of 2014.

C#m E Click on the link for the world's biggest dick B A You can smell the rats are dying as the ship starts to sink C#m A Down beneath, the poor are in braces and tears B A Up against the bars, staring down their years C#m E You told me to kiss you because we were at the end B A And I said I wouldn't miss you, because baby, I'd be dead C#m E And that's the only way, it seems, that I could get away B A Otherwise, I'm nothing without you, babe (continue chord progression) I got a bad, sick stink, and I'm bathing in the sink At the YMCA down the street from the clinic And there's a sad old man with a sad, saggy ass Just crying under the electric dryer for your hands And he's wet, and he's dying and the spiders on his nose Seem to indicate that he's been keeping warm out in the cold And he's a lot like me, I guess, but we're somehow not the same They say you really die the last time anybody says your name

I got these black rotten teeth, cracking off in bloody beef And I haven't seen the dentist in at least six thousand weeks And I'm high on this TV and these whiskeys and these dreams That I wouldn't dare to follow because I couldn't dare succeed So I write down shitty words, so I sit in titty bars So I text and tweet and look at nudes and beat off in the dark Back when I was just a boy, these were okay ways to go But baby, I got old and somewhere I ditched my soul (whistling is the same as riff 1) This sweet and sticky dream was nothing that I needed Just demons to believe, poisons lined up to feed 'em And the rings inside this tree are rotten deeper down Goddamn this fucking town, it's restless and I'm drowning C#m, E, B, A We are the lonely seeds Adrift on burning seas Just pour the goddamn round And let's let these fuckers drown A, B, C#m -Wester18 4/19/2014
