[Verse 1]

          G               G7/D
Want some whiskey in your water?
G             G7/D
Sugar in your tea?
G                G7/D                     G          G7/D
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
G                    G7/D             G        G7/D
This is the craziest party that could ever be
G                      G7/D             G          G7/D
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see

[Verse 2]

G           G7/D             G             G7/D
Open up the window, let some air into this room
  G                G7/D               G              G7/D
I think I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume
         G                      G7/D        G                G7/D
And that cigarette you're smokin' 'bout scare me half to death
G                   G7/D           G              G7/D
Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath

G            G7/D                G               G7/D
The radio is blastin', someone's knockin' at the door
    G              G7/D                     G              G7/D
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend - she's passed out on the floor
G              G7/D           G              G7/D
I seen so many things I ain't never seen before
G                 G7/D                G           G7/D
Don't know what it is - I don't wanna see no more
