**** NOTE: I BROKE THE SONG DOWN INTO 7 VERSES. I TRIED TO SHOW

THE STRUMMING PATTERN AND THE CHORDS FOR THE FIRST 5

VERSES. THE REST OF THE SONG WILL CONTINUE IN BASICALLY

THE SAME MANNER.

 

**** THE TWO MAIN STRUMMING PATTERNS ARE:

 

B (let ring) D D E E

/ / / / /

AND

D D E E D D B (let ring)

/ / / / / / /

 

 

VERSE 1:

(Making it), making it, doesn't matter how many

(Taking it), taking it

Well, I can't shake it

Off a my back, damn monkey

It's either too tight, or too slack

 

VERSE 2:

(Ninety nine), that's all it is, oooh

(Ninety nine)

How much, (ninety nine)

Now, ninety nine

You better hack it, baby (ninety nine)

 

VERSE 3:

Yeah, my time exploded, space blew up

Need something in my dixie cup

Whoa, let me get it right

There's the best pair of lips I've kissed all night

 

verse 4:

How much,(ninety nine), give it to me

I'll pay you later

999, (ninety nine)

Got a pocket calculator, (ninety nine)

Yeah wake up, it don't make no sense

Nickles and dimes

999, (ninety nine)

 

VERSE 5:

Yeah, the lion and lamb are locked in an embrace

You won't get it 'till it's in your face

Oooh, I got me out of deeper red

Don't panic, (999)

(Ninety nine), ah, it's where I want to be

Yeah, oh (ninety nine)

A useful member of society, huh (999)

 

 

VERSE 6:

(Ninety nine), I need a little love and old money

Gimme (ninety nine), ninety nine (gimme, gimme)

(999) well, I can't shake it off a my back

God damn monkey

Yeah, it's too tight or it's too slack

(999), some things never change

Price of bullets remains the same

here we go

 

VERSE 7:

Hand over fist, slap on the wrist

Ummm, ninety nine, (ninety nine)

That's all I'm asking for, (ninety nine)

How much, (999)

How much do you want to give

Yeah, just a little bit

Nine ninety, (nine ninety nine)

Yeah, they operate

Look at the state of my baby

Will it cost twenty grand? Pitiful

Yeah, that's a nine

Put your money where your mouth is, (ninety nine)

Couph it up, (999)

Oh, nickle and dimes

Yeah, huh, oooh, (ninety nine)

(999), (999) -- TO FADE OUT
