#1.(4th fret)
G
John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
                               G7
Just to leave the folk music behind.
C
Zal and Denny workin' for a penny,
G
Tryin' to get a fish on the line.
     D
In a coffee house Sebastian sat,
    C
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
G
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher in L.A., 
                      C
You know where that's at.
                     Bb              G
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#2.
G
Zally said, "Denny, you know there aren't many,
                                     G7
who can sing a song the way that you do."
C
Denny said, "Zally, golly, don't you think that I wish,
G
I could play guitar like you."
     D
In a coffee house they all sat..
    C
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
G
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher in L.A.,
                      C
you know where that's at.
                     Bb              G
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#3.
G
When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swathmore,
                             G7
But she changed her mind one day.
C
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike,
 G
"Take me to New York right away."
     D
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps..
C
called John and Zal and that was the Mugwumps.
G
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher,
                                 C
but that's what they were aimin' at.
                     Bb              G
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#4.
G
Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps..
                              G7
Don't you work as hard as you play.
C
Make up, break up, everything is shake up..
G
Guess it had to be that way.
D
Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful..
C
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin' very tuneful.
G
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire in L.A., 
                      C
You know where that's at.
                        Bb              G
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

#5.
G
Broke, busted, disgusted, agents can't be trusted,
                              G7
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea.
C
Cass can't make it..she says we'll have to fake it..
   G
We knew she'd come eventually.
D
Keepin' on the American Express card..
C
tent's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard.
G
Duffy's good vibrations and our imaginations,
                      C
Can't go on indefinitely.
                           Bb              G
And California dreamin' is becomin' a reality... 


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
