Any chimp can play human for a day.
F                                    C
Use his opposable thumbs to iron his uniform
    F                 C
and run for office on election day
F                    C
fancy himself a real decision maker
F                           C   (with guitar lick x2)
and deploy more troops than salt shakers.

F                      G      C
But it's a jungle when war is made,
F                                   G           C
and you'll panic and throw your own sh*t at the enemy.

The camera pulls back to reveal your true identity.

Look, it's a sheep in wolf's clothing.

Any a**hole can open up a museum.
               F                  C
Put all of the things he loves on display

so everyone could see them.
F                              C
The house, a car, a thoughtful wife
F                                C
ordinary moments in his ordinary life.

Guitar Lick X 1

F                                 G        C
But if she breaks a smile, she'll give you away
       F               G               C
'cause no one wants to pay to see your happiness.
F               G               C   B/G
No one wants to pay to see your day to day
Am          F 
and I'm not buying it either
G                       F
but I'll try selling it anyway.

F                  C
Any idiot can play Greek for a day
F                      C
and join a sorority or write a tragedy
    F                     C
and articulating all that pain
    F                C  
and maybe you'll get paid.

           F        G           C
But it's a sin when success complains,
         F                 G          C
and your writers block- it don't mean sh*t.
F                         G        C   B/G  Am
Just throw it against the wall and see what sticks.
