THE JEAN GENIE from Aladdin Sane 


INTRO:  E...continue main riff for most of the song.


A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city
Strung out on lasers and slash back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking bout Monroe and walking on Snow White
New York's a go-go and everything tastes right poor little Greenie


CHORUS 1:
B                           A
Jean Genie lives on his back
B                              A
Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
B                                       A
He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls
B                       B Bb A   G D  A  G D
Jean Genie let yourself go...o!


Sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile 
She loves him, she loves him but just for a short while
She'll scratch in the sand, won't let go his hand
He says he's a beautician and sells you nutrition
And keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear poor little Greenie


CHORUS 2


He's so simple minded he can't drive his module
He bites on the neon and sleeps in the capsule loves to be loved, loves to be loved


SOLO


CHORUS 3 + 4
