She Wants So Many Things lyrics

Pre>(struck by lightning)

She wants so many things (g. parker)
Capo 2

Intro: em / d/ a/ d (3 times)

G d a d
She wants so many things you cant give to her
G d a g
She wants so many things you dont have much
She wants so many things you cant deliver to her
She wants so many things all at once

Verse (chords: g / a / g / a)
Like a brick wall thatll keep her from crumbling
And a camouflage jacket to hide from herself in
And a system of worship like a powerful magnet
Thatll draw in the heathens pick them up in a dragnet
And pull them underwater till they all go stagnant

Bridge (chords: d / a / d / a)
She wants so many things beamed in on a satellite
Served up on a silver tray a wasp and parasite

G d a d
She wants so many things where you gonna find them all
G d a g
She wants so many things get up and run
She wants so many things youre at her beck and call
Youre the puppet she pulls the strings just for fun

Verse (chords: g / a / g / a)
Like a blue ocean thats devoid of fishes
Cause theyre all on her table prepared into dishes
Like an army of lieutenants all standing to attention
And a book about you where you dont get a mention
With her hand on a Bible shes right in your face
Shes a living example of gods bad taste
And with him for an ally she cant be a heretic
But her hearts from a laboratory spun from a synthetic

Bridge (chords: d / a / d / a)
She wants so many things brought without question
The gardens of babylon hanging and festooned
A ship in the desert your soul on a plate
She cant wait any longer dont make her wait

G d a d
She wants so many things you cant negotiate
G d a g
She wants so many things you feel the crunch
She wants so many things dont make her reiterate
She wants so many things all at once

Verse (chords: g / a / g / a)
A collection of clowns who were dragged up in public school
Who dream up the rhythms that she dances in the disco to
They all surround her and yes her to death
With their hands on their mouths to hide their bad breath
And she lives in a fortress at the back of a project
And shell let you in soon but not now and not yet
And she likes to see you immersed in greed
Confusing what you want with what you need

Bridge (chords: d / a / d / a)
She wants so many things split up into atoms
She owns the crown jewels but you cant get at em

Chorus 2 repeat then instrumental verse with doo dooo doos
Then intro repeat

G d a d
She wants so many things you cant keep up with her
G d a g
She wants so many things at the same time
She wants so many things you cant keep it up her
She wants so many things youll never find

Verse (chords: g / a / g / a)
Like three million shoes and a closet full of whips
And two dozen hats and then everyone fits
And the kind of acceptance that needs a lobotomy
Thatll help you accept every single contradictory
Statement that hits you like a force nine gale
And makes you go pale every time that you fail
To bring home the bacon and bring in the goods
Get the musk from the deer and the shell from the turtle
And the gold from the fools and the shells from the sea
She says load them in a caravan bring them to me

Bridge (chords: d / a / d / a)
She wants so many things brought to her feet
Cover every inch of the world in concrete
You better do it its only your fate
She cant wait any longer dont make her wait

G d a d
She wants so many things you cant give to her
G d a g
She wants so many things you dont have much
She wants so many things you cant deliver to her
Everythings attached to strings you cant touch
(fade on) she wants so many things /pre>
