G#                                         DSo all you tickets I just want you to dig me,
G#                                                     DWith my striped zoot jacket that the sods can plainly see,
       A#                    DSo the action lies with all of you guys,
G#                                                              DIs how you look in the other, the other, yeah, the other cat's eye.
Well don't you see, well don't you see, well don't you see now,
Well don't you see now, come on baby, 'cause don't you see now...
