Intro: | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm |


D               G
Got no books in my house
       A        D 
Got no time for those
               G
No room in my closets
         A
Closets' full of clothes


D               G
Garage full of wheels, babe
           A       D
Boat house full of boat
               G 
The lifestyle ideal, babe
            A
That's what gets my vote


Bm
All the Villas on the hillsides

Gotta have a view to sea
Bm
Villas of the empire
G              A
  Way back in history


           Bm
They have slaves for the galleys and the kitchens

Gardens and the vines
 Bm
Slaves for the beautiful people
G              A
  Bring water, food and wine


   D                G 
A slave to tie your bib

  Another one to carry it

I dig my chariot dig my crib


      G           D        Bm              D/A     | D     D/A |
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home

Dig my crib
      G           D        E7              A       | D   Dsus4  D |
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home


Solo: | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm |


D                G
England calls me vulgar
           A      D
I'd call myself refined
            G 
Goodbye old England
               A 
Simon's off to sunny climes


D                   G
Look who's doin' it now, babe
           A        D
Look who's doin' it now
                    G
Look who's doin' it now, babe
           A        D
Look who's doin' it now


 
Solo: | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm | Bm |


Bm
Always was an early bird

With something on the side 
Bm
Better buy this, better buy that
G              A
Maybe let that baby ride


Bm
Out here everyday it's hot

And I'm talking to my men
Bm
Working this working that
G             A
Working on my masterplan


   D              G
A slave to tie my bib
A                F#sus4
  Another one to carry it
Bm            G            | A |
  So now I'll take my crib
                            | D  Dsus4  D |
I dig my chariot dig my crib


      G           D        Bm              D/A     | D     D/A |
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home
      | D   Dsus4  D |
Dig my crib
      G           D        E7              A           | Dsus4  D |
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home


    Bm
Now here's the hot-tub, here's the gym

Here's the pool that I swam in
Bm
Up the stairs my footprints led

To the bedroom, to my bed


Bm
Up the stairs my footprints led

To where I lay my bosom head
 Bm
Sleep the long sleep of the dead

I'm an early bird, that's what I said


Outro: | Bm | -> repeate to end.
