Tune down 1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

Eb
He's a fool, lets you knows who'll you say
You can see him coming from a mile away
He's got his lapels cut just a little oversplayed
And his shoes could be a problem, could get in the way

Ab
Watch that man
He's your problem
Got something for ya down between his toes
Watch that man
He's your contact
He's got his feather shoved right up your nose

Eb
He was born in the future
He's getting born here sometime soon
Getting born in the future
Hey maid, make up this room

G7sus4             G                              G7sus4
 They put out a police description out for this guy
             G                    G7sus4          G
You know the kind of a guy with a kind of disguise
                          G7sus4
I don't know quite if his shoulders are wide
   G                      G7sus4         G
Or quite how blue are his blue blue eyes
                 G7sus4
How wide are his ties 
                   G
How smooth are his lies
                     G7sus4
How big are his feet
                    G
He dresses so neat
                            G7sus4                 G
But he's being born in some ordinary street right now

Just like you and me

Eb
Two tone, fruttone, who really cares
Whether your born with long blond hair
On the border with smorgasbord fiords 
And down on 42nd Street with all the love flown broads

Ab
Watch that man
He's your problem
Got something for ya down between his toes
Watch that man
He's your contact
He's got his feather shoved right up your nose

Eb
He was born in the future

Tomorrow they can bring another fool into the world
Tomorrow they will bring another soul
Tomorrow they can bring another fool into the world
Tomorrow they will bring another soul

He was born in the future
He's getting born here sometime soon
He's getting born in the future
Hey maid, make up this room
