Intro: Em G Am B5 D 

 Em                         G 
Imagine in your mind a posh country club 
    Am                         B5       D 
The stuffy old money where the poor get snubbed 
 Em                      G 
The spread is bland sauerkraut and boiled goose 
        Am                       B5       D 
There's no way these people will ever cut loose 
           Em                        G 
But then I walk in the room, hold my boombox high 
    Am                       B5        D 
And what happened next, will blow your mind 



Em                      Am 
Everything got outta control 
    D               G       D/F# 
The music was so entrancing 
Em                      Am 
Everyone got out on the floor 
         D                         G       D/F# 
It was a bunch of old white people dancing 

    Em               G 
The Big Apple, where people never dance 
Am                    B5        D 
Spirits go down while profits expand 
    Em                         G 
The cops or the dealers, who's got the juice 
    Am                            B5     D 
The street vendors peddling their boiled goose 
   Em                        G 
So many types of people will never get along 
       Am                      B5        D 
Till I bust out my boombox and play this song 


Em                            Am 
The music washed away all the hate 
      D              G        D/F# 
And society started advancing 
      Em                   Am 
Every demographic was represented 
         D                    G       D/F# 
It was a rainbow coalition of dancing 
Em   Am 
Whoa 
D                    G           D/F# 
Everyone was wearing fingerless gloves 
Em    Am 
Whoah oh 
        D                     G       D/F# 
I saw a Spanish guy doing the Bartman 

Em                  G 
Transport now to an old folks home 
          Am                          B5      D 
Where the elderly are tossed on their brittle bones 
    Em                              G 
The orderlies are stealing, there's no excuse 
Am                          B5     D 
Everyday for lunch they eat boiled goose 
     Em                             G 
So I grabbed my boombox and hit the turbo base 
    Am                       B5       D 
And what happened next was a total disgrace 


Em                       Am 
Everybody started having sex 
    D                 G       D/F# 
The music was way too powerful 
           Em                      Am 
A bunch of old people fucking like rabbits 
          D                  G      D/F# 
It was disgusting to say the least, oh 
  Em                     Am 
A boombox can change the world 
          D                       G       D/F# 
You gotta know your limits with a boombox 
Em                    A 
This was a cautionary tale 
  D                G    D/F# 
A boombox is not a toy 

Em G Am B5 D 
Em
