I read your letter and the things you say
You said power chords are all that we should play
Well, this is what you're gonna eat today, Virginia

'Cause if power chords are what you say you need
Well, look inside you body, baby, you will see
     D        D    D           D          A...
That man and [egg?] and flying seed is in ya

You got it in ya

And if you depend on me to make you rock and roll
Well, you better look out, titch, because we're gettin' old
Look inside and check out your neglected soul, Virginia

'Cause I can seem to dance all night alone unseen
Or VIP and fight down at the Music Machine
But as for you, the place to look for rock and roll is in ya

Hmm, you got it in ya

[repeat intro]

You got it in ya
You know you got it in ya.. it's in ya... ooh, you got it in ya

Your letter came and today is the eighth
This is the day that Moonie earned his wraith
And it makes me want to tell ya stuff on letters, dear Virginia

And if you really care then better stay awake
Check me out again, baby, and say that I'm a fake
And you can then forsake the part of me that's in ya
Oh, it's in ya

[repeat intro]

Oh, now you got me in ya... oh yeah, it's all in ya
Can you feel it in ya? Ooh

              E             D
You've got it in ya, you've got it in your heart
           E          D                           E
You got it in ya, I'm just a tiny part of what is in ya
D                                 E
Please remember, darling, sweet Virginia

                                  [interlude]
     D                          ||:A   A6 A7 A6 :||
That everything you need's already in ya
                                ||---------------||

                                  [palm mute]

Well, I'll forgive completely all your lack of tact
My patience holdin' out and it's a hard-earned fact
That I could easily buy your time, dearest Virginia

Hmm, but you will always give me just a'one more chance
You'll hang around and ask me for a chance to dance
But I can't make you jump, baby, if it ain't in ya

You've got it in ya, you've got it in your heart
You got it in ya, you know, I'm just a tiny part of what is in ya
Please remember, darling, sweet Virginia
Everything you need's already in ya

[repeat intro, fade]

Oh, yeah, you've got it in ya...
You got it in ya
Hey, titch
Toe rag
Hmm, tosser
You got me in ya, hmmm
You got it, got it in ya
Ooh, you know it's in ya
