Last updated:


INTRO C C C G Bb F C G Bb F

C G Bb F C G Bb F
No more pretending now, the albatross is dying in its nest C G
The company is crippling me, Bb F Am Am
the worst trying to ruin the best, the best
Bb C
Their promotion's so lame
Bb C
They could never ever take it to the real ball game
F G
Maybe they think I'm a pet
F
Well I've got all the diseases G G G
I'm breaking out in sweat, you bet, because

CHORUS
C G Bb F
I got, Mercury poisoning
C G Bb F
It's fatal and it don't get better
C G Bb F
I got, Mercury poisoning Bb C G Bb F C G Bb F
The best kept secret in the we--est, hey the we--est


The boys and me are getting real well known around town
But every time we try to spread the action
Someone always brings it down, down
I ate the orange and I don't feel well
For them it's inconvenience for me it's hell
The geriatric staff think we're freaks
They couldn't sell kebabs to the Greeks, the geeks
Inaction speaks, and

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Am G Am G
Is this a Russian conspiracy, no it's just idiocy
F G
Is this a Chinese burn
Am G Am G
I gotta dinosaur for a representative
F G
It's got a small brain and refuses to learn

Bb F G
Their promotion's so lame
Bb F G
They could never ever take it to the real ball game
F G
Listen I ain't a pet
F G
I aint a token hipster, in your monopoly set G
You bet because

CHORUS, plus
Yeah the best kept secret in the west The best kept secret in the west
