( This is the riff played in the background durring the verses.)

Verse 1:
   D      G          Em            A      B    G   Em   A 
Some day mother will die and I'll get the money
 D         G              Em      A        B    G   Em   A 
Mom leans down and says, "My sentiments exactly
Bb               G          A
   you son of a bitch"  I palindrome I

   B  G        Em      A   
  (I palindrome I)   I palindrome I
  (I palindrome I)
            Bm         D          G           D        Em   G   A   
And I am a snake head eating the head on the opposite side
          (snake head)                                  (snake head)
             G         D      
I palindrome I  (man o man)

Verse 2:
See that bulletproof dress hanging from the clothesline
see the medical chart with the random zig-zag
Now I'll help it decide  I palindrome I


Bridge ( The bass is weird here. Maybe the flatted third? ):
G      A    B      A(bass C#)   D          Em         D(F#)       G
  "Son I am able," she said, "though you scare me." "Watch," said I,
    A      B         A(C#)      Bm(D)  Em              D      G     A
"Beloved," I said, "watch me scare you though"  Said she: "Able am I, son..."

Verse 3:
See the spring of the grandfather clock unwinding
     (egad, a base tone denotes a bad age)
see the hands of my offspring making windmills
     (egad, a base tone denotes a bad age)
Dad palindrome dad. I palindrome I
