Short Skirt/Long Jacket

	  		INTRO:  (Here's that signature riff throughout the song)
E|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5--3-5p3h5--3-5-3-0------0--5--3-5p3h5--3-5-3-0------0--|
E|---------------------1--3------------------------1--3----|


VERSE 1:  (Just repeat that signature riff)
I wanna girl with a mind like a diamond
I wanna girl who knows what's best
I wanna girl with shoes that cut, and 
Eyes that burn like cigarettes.


VERSE 2:  (Now play these chords with slight overdrive)
D	      A    G	     		A
 I wanna girl with the right allocations.
      D	    	    A	  G		     A
Who's fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack.
D		              A  G			  A
She's playing with her jewelry,  she's putting up her hair,
D			  A  G
She's touring the facility,  and picking up slack.

I wanna girl with a short skirt, and a loooooong jacket!

E|---------------------1--3------------------------1--3----|


VERSE 3:  (Play like verse 1)
I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who used a machedy to cut through red tape


VERSE 4:  (Play like verse 2)
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass
She is fast and thorough 
And sharp as a tack
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnng.... lonnng jacket

VERSE 5:  (Play like verse 1, and 3)
I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
And at the city bank we will meet accidentally
We'll start to talk when she borrows my pen.


VERSE 6:  (Play like verse 2, and 4)
She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
She's changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She's trading her MG for a white Chrystler Laberan
I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnggggggggg jacket.
