                Here's a nice little "folk" song from Zappa.  Supposedly all events actually
took place.  The song is played rather fast in a possible 2/4 time signature
with most chords taking two beats. Comments are welcome.  Enjoy.

Let's Make the Water Turn Black--Mothers of Invention

Intro Chords: C(major with added notes) Arpeggios on piano
C                   Em/B               Am
Now believe me when I tell you that my song is really true
Dm     Em          Fm         G    
I want everyone to listen and believe
C               Em/B                 Am       
It's about some little people from a long time ago
Bb          Eb         Ab               G
And all the things the neighbors didn't know
C            Em/B          Am 
Early in the morning Daddy Dinky went to work
Dm                Em        Fm           G
Selling lamps and chairs to San Ber'dino Squares
C           Em/B                   Am 
And I still remember mama with her apron and her pad
Bb              Am           D
Feeding all the boys in Ed's Cafe

G            F           G                   Am
Whizzing and pasting and pooting through the day
G              Am            Bm             D        
Ronnie helping Kenny helping burn his poots away
G           F          Eb         D
And all the while on a shelf in a shed
C                         Ab G
Kenny's little creature's on display

C                Em/B        Am
Ronnie saves his numies on a window in his room
Dm             Em    Fm        G
A marvel to be seen; dysentery green
C                   Em/B          Am
While Kenny and his buddies had a game out in the back
F              G          Am 

Em                            A
We see them after school in a world of their own
Em                                A
To some it might seem creepy what they do...
Em                                 C            B
The neighbors on the right sat and watched them every night
Em                                  D
I bet you'd do the same if they was you


C               Em/B         Am 
Ronnie's in the Army now and Kenny's taking pills
Dm           Em             Fm     G   
Oh! How they yearn to see a bomber burn!
C               Em/B              Am 
Color flashing, thunder crashing, dynamite machine!
F             G          Am
Wait till the fire turns green...
F             G          Am  
Wait till the fire turns green...
F             G          A(major)
