CARBONA NOT GLUE

[ G#\A  F#\G  D ] x4


A                  D
Wondering what I'm doing tonight
I've been in the closet and feel all right
Ran out of Carbona, mom threw out the glue
Ran out of paint and roach spray too


It's TV's fault why I am this way
Mom and pop wanna put me away
>From the early morning movie to the late late show
After it's over nowhere to go


E     

C#                        A
And I'm not sorry for the things I do
C#                       E
My brain is stuck from shooting glue
C#                      A
I'm not sorry for the things I do


                  B  A
   (Carbona) not glue
   Carbona not glue
                B
   Carbona not glue


[ G#\A  F#\G  D ] x4

Wondering what I'm doing...

It's TV's fault...


   G#\A    F#\G  D
   Carbona not hey!
   Carbona not hey!
   Carbona not hey!
   Carbona not hey!
