D Everybody drank a lot of something nice E There was an old fashioned band of married men F#m Looking up to me for encouragement it was so-so A The ladies looked bad but the music was sad D No one took their eyes off Lorraine E She shimmered and she strolled like a Chicago moll F#m Her feathers looked better and better it was so-so D A B D Yeah, it was time to unfreeze when the Reverend Alabaster danced on his knees D A E Slam, so it wasn't a game cracking all the mirrors in shame CHORUS: A D G D C Watch that man oh honey watch that man D C G Well, he talks like a jerk but he could eat you with fork and spoon A D G C Watch that man oh honey watch that man D C B He walks like a jerk but he's only taking care of the room C Must be in tune INTRO 2: G C9 Em A G C9 Em A A A Benny Goodman fan painted holes in his hands D So shakey hung him up to dry E The pundits were joking the man holes were smoking F#m And every bottle battled with the reason why A The girl on the phone wouldn't leave me alone D A throw back from someones LP E A lemon in a bag played the tiger rag F#m And the bodies on the screen stopped bleeding D A B D Yeah I was shaking like a leaf for I couldn't understand the conversation D A E Yeah I ran to the street looking for information CHORUS 2 G C9 G C9 Watch that man G C9 Watch that man, ooh, ooh, ooh G C9 Watch that man, ooh, ooh, ooh G C9 Watch
