F                               Bbmaj7
Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
F                       Bbmaj7
Tired of livin' in your one-horse town
      F                     Bbmaj7
You'd like to find a little hole in the ground
      Am         C
For a while u-hm-hm

F                                Bbmaj7
So you go to the village in your tie-dye jeans
F                            Bbmaj7
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
F                           Bbmaj7  
It's like some pornographic magazine
        Am         D 
And you smile u-hm-hm


CHORUS 1:
G       D                 C            D
Captain Jack will get you high tonight
G            D               C      
And take you to your special island
G       D                 C          D
Captain Jack will get you by tonight
G             D                  C
Just a little push and you'll be smilin'


F  Bbmaj7  F  Bbmaj7


F                       Bbmaj7
Your sister's gone out, she's on a date
F                    Bbmaj7
You just sit at home and masturbate
F                                    Bbmaj7
The phone is gonna ring soon but you just can't wait
         Am        C
For that call u-hm-hm

F                                 Bbmaj7
So you stand on the corner in you New English clothes
F                                  Bbmaj7
And you look so polished from your hair down to your toes
   F                             Bbmaj7
Oh but still your finger's gonna pick your nose
      Am       D
After all u-hm-hm


CHORUS 2


F  Bbmaj7  F  Bbmaj7


F                       Bbmaj7
So you decide to take a holiday
F                               Bbmaj7
You got your tape deck and your brand new chevrolet
F                          Bbmaj7
Ah there ain't no place to go anyway
         Am       C
And what for u-hm-hm

F                            Bbmaj7
So you've got everything, ah but nothing's cool
F                          Bbmaj7
They just found your Father in the swimming pool
F                               Bbmaj7
And you guess you wont be going back to school
    Am   D
Any more


CHORUS 3:

And you meet your girlfriend in the parking lot
F                                             Bbmaj7
Oh but still you're aching for the things you haven't got
          Am         C
What went wrong u-hm-hm

F                                    Bbmaj7
And if you can't understand why your world is so dead
F                              Bbmaj7
Why you've gotta keep in style and feed your head
F                                            Bbmaj7
Well you're twenty one and still your Mother makes your bed

And that's too long Whoa-whoa-whoa-yeah-yeah

This is an awesome songe! When I was 21 my mother still made my bed?was that too long? but then she was a carpenter! I think the "hole in the ground" bit has a little chord change behind it. Same chord probably...maybe an inversion..probably a piano thang...anyone have any ideas?
