A while ago someone posted a request for this, so here it is:

Intro(which is like the chorus)

Bb  Eb | Bb  Eb F|   x4

G          D           Bb          F
Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
                      C           Cm          Bb
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
G           D            Bb          F
The sun was shining so I head for the park
                     C        Cm           Bb
With a bottle of tequila and a new pack of cigarrettes

I got a cousin, and sge got a friend
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment, I knock on the door
He wouldn't come out until he got paid

    Bb    Eb       Bb    Eb   Bb    Eb
Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
    Bb    Eb   Bb  Eb                   Eb            Bb      Eb
If they find out, you know that they'll never let me through

Bb      Eb    Bb Eb   F  Bb     Eb   Bb  Eb  F
Cos it's no fun being an illegal alien     (X2 or however many you feel like)

Down at the office had to fill out the forms
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose
Up to the counter to see what they think, they said,
"It doesn't count, man, it aint written in ink"

I don't trust anybody, least not around here

Lead in to bridge (the keyboard solo)
Bb (2 bars)  Ab(2 bars)
           An illegal alien, OK
Bridge (background chords)  whole phrase x2
G(no 3rd)  2 bars   G(no 3)/C  2 bars  G(no 3)/Eb 1 bar
G(no 3)/D  G(no 3)/F  half bar each

D             G
Consideration for your fellow man
          C             D7sus4
Would not hurt anybody, sure fits in with my plan
Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand

there's a bit where the chords are Bm | Em  |D  |A  |  x2

then back to pre-chorus and chorus. Lyrics I left out can be found
at uwp among other places.
