Intro: E5 G5 A5 B5 D5

 E5                         G5
Imagine in your mind a posh country club
    A5                         B5       D5
The stuffy old money where the poor get snubbed
 E5                      G5
The spread is bland sauerkraut and boiled goose
        A5                       B5       D5
There's no way these people will ever cut loose
           E5                        G5
But then I walk in the room , hold my boombox high
    A5                       B5        D5
And what happened next, will blow your mind

E5                      A5
Everything got outta control
    D5               G5       D5
The music was so entrancing
E5                      A5
Everyone got out on the floor
         D5                         G5       D5
It was a bunch of old white people dancing

    E5               G5
The Big Apple, where people never dance
A5                    B5        D5
Spirits go down while profits expand
    E5                         G5
The cops or the dealers, who's got the juice
    A5                            B5     D5
The street vendors peddling their boiled goose
   E5                        G5
So many types of people will never get along
       A5                      B5        D5
Till I bust out my boombox and play this song

E5                            A5
The music washed away all the hate
      D5              G5        D5
And society started advancing
      E5                   A5
Every demographic was represented
         D5                    G5       D5
It was a rainbow coalition of dancing
E5   A5
D5                    G5           D5
Everyone was wearing fingerless gloves
E5    A5
Whoah oh
        D5                     G5       D5
I saw a Spanish guy doing the Bartman

E5                  G5
Transport now to an old folks home
          A5                          B5      D5
Where the elderly are tossed on their brittle bones
    E5                              G5
The orderlies are stealing, there's no excuse
A5                          B5     D5
Everyday for lunch they eat boiled goose
     E5                             G5
So I grabbed my boombox and hit the turbo base
    A5                       B5       D5
And what happened next was a total disgrace

E5                       A5
Everybody started having sex
    D5                 G5       D5
The music was way too powerful
           E5                      A5
A bunch of old people fucking like rabbits
          D5                  G5      D5
It was disgusting to say the least, oh
  E5                     A5
A boombox can change the world
          D5                       G5       D5
You gotta know your limits with a boombox
E5                    A5
This was a cautionary tale
  D5                G5    D5
A boombox is not a toy
