(Fmaj7)    (Gm7)               (C)                (Fmaj7)
Wish I was Kellog's Corn Flake Floatin' in my bowl Takin' movies

            (Gm)    (Fmaj7)
Relax in' a while   livin' in style 

(Bb)                                      (Am)
Talkin' to a raisin who occasionally plays L.A.

Casually glancing at his toupee

Wish I was an english muffin 'bout to make the most out of a toaster  
I'd ease myself down comin' up brown
I prefer boysenberry 
More than any ordinary jam
I'm a citizens for boysenberry jam fan

Ah South California

If I become a first lieutenant

(C7)            (Fmaj7)
Would you put my photo on your piano?

         (Gm)  (Fmaj7)
"To Mary Jane... Best wishes, Martin"

Old Roger, draft-dodger

Leaving by the basement door

(Fmaj7)              (Bb)
Ev'rybody knows what he's

(Bbmaj7)(Bb6)               (Fmaj7)
Tippy-toeing down there for......Repeat and fade (Gm7)
