Aim or Behavioral Objective: Students will identify and will be able to (SWBAT):
1. Define the three body parts of an insect.
2. Identify any specific body part when given a diagram.
3. Research different facts about insect.

Applicable N.Y.S Learning Standard(s) (http://www.emsc.nysed.gov/nysatl/standards.html):
English Language Arts: S.1 Language for Information and Understanding; S.2 Language for Literary
Response and Expression; S.3 Language for Critical Analysis and Evaluation. Science: S.2

Motivation: The teacher read the story Bustling Beetles by Peter Murray. He asks the students to share
any prior/background knowledge about insects/bugs. Class recently celebrated William T. Davis’ birthday,
a famous entomologist who the school is named after. Students will be learning about insects throughout
the various subjects.
Review and Link with Prior Knowledge: The teacher asked the students to think and share about what they
know about insects. The class brainstormed many ideas, as the teacher recorded the students’ responses on a
kid- friendly chart.
Explanation and Demonstration of Rules and Procedures:
Session 1
Teacher has students sit at rug. He then read a selected book and then elicited from students certain facts
about bugs. (Has anyone ever seen a bug? What would happen if you had 4 legs? 6 legs?)
Teacher showed a creative, kid-friendly HTA chart (Head Thorax Abdomen chart) and begins chant with
a familiar tune. Head, Thorax, Abdomen, 2x . 2 eyes, 2 antenna, 6 legs from its thorax, Head, Thorax,
Abdomen (to the tune of “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”).
Teacher then hands out a bug sheet from teacher website and children label diagram: Head ,Thorax, and Abdomen.
Review.
Now we will create our own bug.
Give out separate parts for children to color (labeled a-b-c) (5 minutes).
Then children will be then be asked to trade one or two specifically labeled parts with their neighbor.
Students will assemble their new bug on a sheet of construction paper and name their special bug.
Medial Summaries: The teacher asks the students at their desks to repeat the chant as they label/mark up their diagrams. Students will be chosen randomly to share their facts and asked to reinforce knowledge by repeating the learned chant about the three body parts.

Opportunities for Practice: The students were then asked to create our own bug. Teacher handed out separate parts for children to color (labeled a-b-c) (5 minutes). Children were asked to trade one or two specifically labeled parts with their neighbor.Students assembled their new bug on a sheet of construction paper and named their special bug.
Students will continue lesson in Session 2 and do further research on a specific insect.

Session 2

Review, Further Research and Share Aloud
Review body parts and facts from previous session.

1. Distribute various books about insects to each group.
2. Have students take turns reading their book about insects.
3. Handout worksheets to each group. Be sure to have students fill out the chart.
4. When all groups are finished, have them share aloud, about what they learned.

Medial Summaries: The teacher asks the students at their desks to repeat the chant as they label/mark up their diagrams. Students will be chosen randomly to share their facts and asked to reinforce knowledge by repeating the learned chant about the three body parts, In addition, they will share the information that they have periodically.

Opportunities for Practice:
Session 2 is all about practice. Students are not only identifying the parts of their own insect but finding
additional facts to share with their peers.

Final Summary: The teacher reviewed what the class learned through the process of a share aloud.
Assessment of Understanding: Students were asked NOT ONLY the body parts of an insect but additional
facts that they researched. The teacher judged their understanding based on their responses.
Class Management: The first lesson was conducted on the rug. Students were expected to participate by
raising their hand to respond to questions or comments. Students then transitioned to their desks for
independent work. They returned to the rug to share their findings. The second lesson includes class review
and includes some independent and group work. Teachers will monitor and praise positive work.

Comments on Lesson and Related Matters: The students used picture clues ,and a repetitive song/chant to a
childhood song to reinforce their understanding of the body parts of each insect.
The teacher emphasized the singing of the song as the children completed their assignments at their desks .
This was very helpful to the success of this lesson.

WACKY WEDNESDAY

• It all began with that shoe on the WALL - A shoe on the WALL …? Shouldn’t be there at all!
• Then I looked up and I said “ OH, MAN!” and that’s how WACKY WEDNESDAY began.
• I looked out the WINDOW and I said, “ GEE!” More things WERE WACKY! And I saw three(3).
• In the bathroom MORE! In the bathroom, FOUR(4)!
• I began to dress. Then I said WOW! Four (4) more things WERE WACKY now!
• I looked in the kitchen. I said “By cracky!” Five (5) more things are very WACKY!”
• I was late for school I started along and I saw that six (6) more things were wrong.
• And then Seven (7) more!
• And the Sutherland sisters! They looked WACKY, too. They said, “Nothing is WACKY around here but you!”
• “But look“ I yelled. “ Eight (8) things are WRONG here at school.”
• I ran into school. I yelled to Miss Bass….. Look! 9 things are WACKY right here in your class!”
• Nothing is WACKY here in my class! Get out! You’re the WACKY one! “ Out!” said Miss Bass.
• I went out the school door. Things WERE WORSE than before. I couldn’t believe it. Ten (10) WACKY things more!
• Then I counted Eleven (11).
• Then twelve (12) WORSE things! I got scared. And I ran. I ran and knocked over Patrolman McGann.
• “I’m sorry, Patrolman.” That’s all I could say, Don’t be sorry,” he smiled. “It’s that kind of day. But be glad! WACKY WEDNESDAY will soon go away!”
• “ Only twenty (20) things more WILL be WACKY,” he said. “ Just find them and then you can go back to bed.”
• WACKY WEDNESDAY WAS gone WHEN I counted them all. And I even got rid of that shoe on the WALL.

ARTHROPOD CLASSIFICATION
EXOSKELETON
Centipedes, millipedes, insects, crustaceans, and arachnids, including spiders, all belong to a super-group of invertebrates called arthropods. Arthropods are more numerous and varied than any other animal group.

WHAT FEATURES DO ARTHROPODS SHARE?
All arthropods have bodies divided into segments and covered with a hard EXOSKELETON. This tough casing is made of a protein called chitin, which is also found in human fingernails. The armor is flexible at joints on the legs, which makes arthropods nimble.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CENTIPEDE AND A MILLIPEDE?
Centipedes are active hunters, while most millipedes eat plant matter. Also, centipedes have two legs per body segment. Millipedes have four. Centipedes and millipedes are collectively known as myriapods.

DO ALL CENTIPEDES HAVE ONE HUNDRED LEGS?
The word centipede means “100 legs,” but some centipedes have fewer than 100 legs, and others have more. Similarly, the word millipede means “1,000 legs,” but in fact no millipede has more than 750 legs.

ARTHROPOD CLASSIFICATION
Arthropods make up the largest phylum (group) in the animal kingdom. There are more than 900,000 named species divided into 13 classes:

Crustaceans
Insects
Arachnids
Centipedes
Millipedes
Sea spiders
Pauropods
Symphylans
Springtails
Proturans
Two-pronged bristletails
Three-pronged bristletails
King crabs


EXOSKELETON
An arthropod’s exoskeleton is a protective case and an anchor point for muscles. As well as being tough, it is waterproof, helping these creatures to survive in even the harshest habitats.


The lobster’s hard exoskeleton supports and protects its body. Even delicate parts, such as the legs and antennae, are completely encased. The North Atlantic lobster is the world’s heaviest arthropod, weighing up to 44 lb (20 kg).
HOW DO ARTHROPODS GROW?
In order to grow, arthropods have to molt (shed their exoskeletons) every so often. They then expand their bodies before their new casing hardens. Arthropods are vulnerable while molting, so they look for a safe place to hide before they begin.

WHERE DO ARTHROPODS LIVE?
Arthropods occur in virtually every habitat, from the cold ocean depths to the hottest deserts. They can live through extremes that would kill most vertebrates. Scorpions, for example, can survive being frozen solid.
BEETLES


beetle, common name for insects of the order Coleoptera, which, with more than 300,000 described species,
1. is the largest of the insect orders.
2. Beetles are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Coleoptera.
3. Beetles have :
4. chewing mouthparts and
5. well-developed antennae.
6. They are characterized by :
7. a front pair of hard, opaque, waterproof wings called elytra, which usually meet in a straight line down the middle of the back. The elytra cover the rear pair of membranous flight wings, protecting them and the body from mechanical damage and desiccation.
8. Beetles are :
9. poor flyers
10. compared with many other insects,
11. GREAT SURVIVORS, but they are well adapted for surviving rigorous conditions.
12. They are found everywhere except in oceans and near the poles, and they occupy nearly every kind of habitat. Most are terrestrial, but some are underground tunnelers and some live in water. These water beetles are often confused with water bugs, but the latter all have sucking mouthparts. Beetles range in size from under 1/32 in. (1 mm) to over 6 in. (15 cm) long; tropical species are the largest. Most are dull, but members of several beetle families are brilliantly colored, some with a metallic or iridescent sheen. The majority of beetles are plant eaters, but there are also many predators and scavengers and a few parasites. Many beetles are highly destructive pests of crops and gardens (e.g., Japanese beetle, potato beetle, boll weevil), but others are beneficial predators of harmful insects (e.g., ladybird beetles). The largest of the many beetle families is the scarab beetle family, with over 20,000 species; among these are the dung beetles, which are invaluable scavengers. Weevils are plant-eating beetles with mouthparts elongated into snouts bearing jaws at their ends. The fireflies are luminescent beetles. Blister beetles, including the so-called Spanish fly, produce irritating secretions.
13.
14.
15. click beetle, common name for members of the widespread beetle family Elateridae. Also called elater beetle,
16. the click beetle has a hinge across the front of the body that allows it to flex, and a spine-and-groove arrangement on the underside of the body that provides a snapping mechanism.
17. When a click beetle is turned on its back it cannot right itself by rolling onto its short legs.
18. It arches its body upward so that only the ends touch the ground, then straightens suddenly, causing the spine to slide into the groove.
19. This sends the beetle spinning through the air and produces a loud click.
20. If the beetle lands on its back again it repeats the performance. A click beetle also snaps its body when it is picked up, which may cause the predator to drop it.
21. Click beetles have long, flat bodies, generally rectangular, but curved at the ends.
22. They range in length from 1/4 in. to 4 in. (6.4–102 mm); most are black or brown.
23. Most adults are nocturnal leaf-eaters. The larvae, called wireworms, are destructive to a large variety of plants. Some tropical click beetles are brilliantly luminescent.
24. Click beetles are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Coleoptera, family Elateridae.
25. There are other luminescent insects, including members of other beetle families; the most spectacular are found in the click beetle family.
26. Fireflies are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Coleoptera, family Lampyridae.

In the parking lot the visionaries dress in the latest rage
C Gm Bb F C
Inside the backstreet girls are dancing to the records that the D.J. plays

Lonely-hearted lovers struggle in dark corners

Desperate as the night moves on, just a look and a whisper, and they're gone

Beneath the city two hearts beat
Cm Bb Cm Bb Abmaj7 Bb
Soul engines running through a night so tender in a bedroom locked
Abmaj7 Bb Eb Bb Ab Bb7 Eb
In whispers of soft refusal and then surrender in the tunnels uptown
Cm C9sus Cm C9sus
The Rat's own dream guns him down as shots echo down them hallways in the night
Abmaj7 Bb Abmaj7 Bb
No one watches when the ambulance pulls away
Cm C Cm
Or as the girl shuts out the bedroom light

G Dm C F G7sus
Outside the street's on fire in a real death waltz
G Dm C F G7sus G Dm C
Between flesh and what's fantasy and the poets down here
F G7sus G Dm C F G7sus G
Don't write nothing at all, they just stand back and let it all be
G Bb
And in the quick of the night they reach for their moment
Dm Bb
And try to make an honest stand but they wind up wounded, not even dead
Dm7 F C
Tonight in Jungleland

It's a town full of losers and we're pulling out of here to win

This file was originally posted by Teri Tracey (teri@sdd.hp.com); she wrote out
the lyrics and most of the chords. I have inserted the missing verse, changed it
into the correct key, and changed a few chords.

Capo 3: Play in D; actually in F.

Cmon Eileen Come On Chords Dexy's Midnight Runners and More Build Me Up Buttercup

Dexy's Midnight Runners
Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio, he moved a million hearts in mono.
Our mothers cried and sang along and who'd blame them.
Now you're grown, so grown, now I must say more than ever.
Go Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
and we can sing just like our fathers.

Come on Eileen,
I swear (well he means) At this moment you mean everything,
With you in that dress my thoughts I confess verge on dirty Ah come on Eileen.

These people round here wear beaten down eyes
Sunk in smoke dried faces they're so resigned to what their fate is,
But not us, no not us we are far too young and clever.
Remember Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
Eileen I'll hum this tune forever.

Come on Eileen, I swear, well he means
Ah come on let's take off everything,
That pretty red dress Eileen (Tell him yes)
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen, please.

Dexys Midnight Runners are best known in America as one of new wave's ultimate one-hit wonders, thanks to their 1982 number one smash "Come on Eileen," a distinctive fusion of '80s pop, Celtic folk, and blue-eyed soul. In the U.K., however, they earned a fair amount of critical acclaim and made a greater impression on the public consciousness with their frequent changes in sound, wardrobe, and personnel. Dexys were formed in 1978 by singer/guitarist/songwriter Kevin Rowland and singer/guitarist Kevin "Al" ... Read More

These two lanes will take us anywhere
B
We got one last chance to make it real
E A
To trade in these wings on some wheels
E
Climb in back
B
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks


E A
Oh oh come take my hand
A E
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
E A
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
B
oh Thunder Road
E A
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
E A E
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
E A B
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight, take hold
E
Thunder Road


A
Well I got this guitar
B E
And I learned how to make it talk
A
And my car's out back
A B
If you're ready to take that long walk
A B
From your front porch to my front seat
G#m A
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
A
And I know you're lonely

For words that I ain't spoken
B
But tonight we'll be free

All the promises'll be broken
E
There were ghosts in the eyes
A R
Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road
B A
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
B
They scream your name at night in the street
E A
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
A
And in the lonely cool before dawn
A
You hear their engines roaring on
Dm B
But when you get to the porch they're gone
B Dm
On the wind, so Mary climb in
A
It's a town full of losers
B E
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

Rythym:
B
Born down in a dead man's town

The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
E
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now
B
Got in a little hometown jam


So they put a rifle in my hand
E
Sent me off to a foreign land


To go and kill the yellow man

B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now


B
Come back home to the refinery


Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
E
Went down to see my V.A. man
| B | B | B | B | E | E | E | E |
He said "Son, don't you understand"
B
I had a brother at Khe Sah
Fighting off the Viet Cong
E
They're still there, he's all gone


B
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
| E | E | E | E |
I got a picture of him in her arms now


B
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary


Out by the gas fires of the refinery
E
I'm ten years burning down the road


Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E B
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now
Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
E
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the

I make no promises so use it at your own risk please (rjmcpher@uci.edu)
There are several phrases to memorize and match to the lyrics.

Title: ROSALITA (Come out tonight)
Artist: Bruce Springsteen

intro: F - Bb - F - C (arpeggio repeat about 8x)

F Bb F C F Bb F C
Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut loose her momma's reins
You know playing blind man's bluff is a little baby's game
You pick up little dynamite - I'll pick up little gun
Together we're gonna go out tonight and make that highway run

Bb Am Dm
You don't have to call me lieutenant Rosie and I don't wanna be your son
C Bb
The only lover I'm ever gonna need you're some sweet little girl's tongue
C11 C C11 C C11 C C 11 C (quickly)
Ah Rosie you're the one

F Bb F C F Bb F C
Dynamite's in the Belfry baby playing with the bats
Little gun's downtown in front of Woolworths trying out his attitude on the cats
Papa's on the corner - waiting for the bus
Mommas home in the window - waiting up for us

She'll be there in that chair 'till they wrestle her upstairs cause you know we
ain't gonna come
I ain't here on business baby I'm only here for fun
And Rosie you're the one

[Chorus:]
F Bb F C F Bb
Rosalita jump a little lighter - Senorita come sit by my fire
I just wanna be your lover ain't no lie - Rosalita you're my strong desire

Jack-the -rabbit and weak-knee'd-Willie you know they're gonna be there
Sloppy Sue and big-bones-Billy they'll be comin' up for air
They're gonna play some pool - skip some school
act real cool - stay out all night - it's gonna be alright

(C) Gm C Csus4 C Csus2 C
So Rosie come out tonight - oh baby come out tonight

Windows are for cheaters - chimneys for the poor
Closets are for hangers - winners use the door
So use it Rosie - that's what it's there for

(CHORUS)

C Gm
And I know your momma she don't like me 'cuz I play in a rock and roll band
Dm Am
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand
F Gm
Your poppa lowered the boom - he locked you in your room - I'm comin' to lend a
hand
Dm Am
I'm coming to liberate you - confiscate you - I want to be your man
Bb C F Am
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny
Dm Bb
But now you're sad - your mommas mad and your
(no chords)
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money (oh your)
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Gm Eb Bb
Well tell him this is his last chance - to get his daughter in a fine romance
C11 C C11 C C11 C C11 C (quickly)
Because the record company Rosie - just gave me a big advance

And my tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the lord had mercy
My machine she's dud stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey
Hold on tight stay up all night Rosie I'm coming on strong
By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms

I know a pretty little place in Southern California down San Diego way
There's a little cafe - where they play guitar all night and all day
You can hear 'em in the back room strummin'
So hold tight baby 'cuz don't you know daddy's coming

(CHORUS)

Cadillac Ranch (from the album "The River")

Capo on 3rd fret (Medium rock and roll)

Well there she sits buddy just a-gleaming in the sun right
G

There to greet a working man when his day is done
C G
I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt

I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch
C D G

Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts
Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back
And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac
Cadillac, Cadillac
G
Long and dark shiny and black
C G

Open up your engines let `em roar

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur
C D G
James Dean in that Mercury `49
Junior Johnson runnin' through the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac...

Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
Drivin' alone through the Wisconsin night
You're my last love you're my last chance
Don't let `em take me to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac...

Revved up like a deuce another runner in the night

Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
A B E
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
A B E
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
A B E
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground
B E
the calliope crashed to the ground and she was...

Revved up like a deuce another runner in the night

Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
B A E
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong if you play that song with the funky break
B A E
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
B A E
And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
A E C#m
asked me if I needed a ride and she was...

CHORUS

Revved up like a deuce another runner in the night

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east

says: "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in its funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
A B E
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner watchin' the young girls dance
E A B
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone reminding him of romance
B E
the calliope crashed to the ground and she was...

Revved up like a deuce another runner in the night

Can't see nothin' in front of me Can't see nothin' coming up behind
I make my way through this darkness I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Lost track of how far I've gone How far I've gone, how high I've climbed
On my back's a sixty pound stone On my shoulder a half mile of line

Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

Left the house this morning Bells ringing filled the air
Wearin' the cross of my calling On wheels of fire I come rollin' down here

Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

I see you Mary in the garden In the garden of a thousand sighs
There's holy pictures of our children Dancin' in a sky filled with light
May I feel your arms around me May I feel your blood mix with mine
A dream of life comes to me Like a catfish dancin' on the end of my line
Eb Bb
Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)
Sky of memory and shadow (a dream of life)
Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life

Come on up for the rising Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising Come on up for the rising tonight

Title: ROSALITA (Come out tonight)
Artist: Bruce Springsteen

intro: F - Bb - F - C (arpeggio repeat about 8x)

F Bb F C F Bb F C
Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut loose her momma's reins
You know playing blind man's bluff is a little baby's game
You pick up little dynamite - I'll pick up little gun
Together we're gonna go out tonight and make that highway run

Bb Am Dm
You don't have to call me lieutenant Rosie and I don't wanna be your son
C Bb
The only lover I'm ever gonna need you're some sweet little girl's tongue
C11 C C11 C C11 C C 11 C (quickly)
Ah Rosie you're the one

F Bb F C F Bb F C
Dynamite's in the Belfry baby playing with the bats
Little gun's downtown in front of Woolworths trying out his attitude on the cats
Papa's on the corner - waiting for the bus
Mommas home in the window - waiting up for us

She'll be there in that chair 'till they wrestle her upstairs cause you know we
ain't gonna come
I ain't here on business baby I'm only here for fun
And Rosie you're the one

[Chorus:]
F Bb F C F Bb
Rosalita jump a little lighter - Senorita come sit by my fire
I just wanna be your lover ain't no lie - Rosalita you're my strong desire

Jack-the -rabbit and weak-knee'd-Willie you know they're gonna be there
Sloppy Sue and big-bones-Billy they'll be comin' up for air
They're gonna play some pool - skip some school
act real cool - stay out all night - it's gonna be alright

(C) Gm C Csus4 C Csus2 C
So Rosie come out tonight - oh baby come out tonight

Windows are for cheaters - chimneys for the poor
Closets are for hangers - winners use the door
So use it Rosie - that's what it's there for
(CHORUS)

C Gm
And I know your momma she don't like me 'cuz I play in a rock and roll band
Dm Am
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand
F Gm
Your poppa lowered the boom - he locked you in your room - I'm comin' to lend a
hand
Dm Am
I'm coming to liberate you - confiscate you - I want to be your man
Bb C F Am
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny
Dm Bb
But now you're sad - your mommas mad and your
(no chords)
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money (oh your)
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Poppa says he knows that I don't have any money
Gm Eb Bb
Well tell him this is his last chance - to get his daughter in a fine romance
C11 C C11 C C11 C C11 C (quickly)
Because the record company Rosie - just gave me a big advance

And my tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the lord had mercy
My machine she's dud stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey
Hold on tight stay up all night Rosie I'm coming on strong
By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms

I know a pretty little place in Southern California down San Diego way
There's a little cafe - where they play guitar all night and all day
You can hear 'em in the back room strummin'
So hold tight baby 'cuz don't you know daddy's coming
