"Slip Away"

F/A                       E7           
   Oogie waits for just another day
Fdim/G                           F
      Drags his bones to see the Yankees play
Dm                              Bb 
   Bones Boy talks and flickers gray
              C        Eb     C
Oh, they slip away


F/A                         E7
    Once a time they nearly might have been
Fdim/G                     F
      Bones and Oogie on a silver screen
Dm                             Bb
   No one knew what they could do
                  C
Except for me and you
           Eb      C
They slip away
They slip away

Am                          F
  Don't forget to keep your head warm
Am                      F
  Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
Dm                               G 
  Watching all the world and war torn
Dm                       G      E7
  How I wonder where you are

Am                   F
  Sailing over Coney Island
Am                      F
  Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
Dm                          G
  We were dumb but you were fun, boy
Dm                       G
  How I wonder where you are
  E7
  Oo-oo

F/A                          E7
    Oogie knew there's never ever time
Fdim/G                        F
       Some of us will always stay behind
Dm                             Bb
   Down in space it's always 1982
            C
The joke we always knew
   Eb
Oo-oo
                     C
What's-a matter with you?
             Eb
C'mon, let's go
       C
Slip away

Well some of us try to be female artists and some of us are chauvinists. I had a teacher of art called Pam Lloyd. Nuff said!!!!
