Capo 3rd fret

G      D                 Am7                         G
 Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night
        D                      Bm       C
Just to check out the late-night record shop
G          D                   Am7
 Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane
G               D                   Bm  C
 But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop
G                 D                             Am7
 It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning, it's a matter of fact
G          D             Bm  C
 You can call me Pavlov's  dog
G         D                    Am7
 Ring a bell and I'll salivate, how'd you like that?
G        D                    Bm             C
 Doctor Landy, tell me you're not just a pedagogue, cause right now I am

G          D            Am7
 Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
         G          D                  Em      Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C | Em | Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C |
Well, I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did

G       D          Am7                           G
 So I'm lying here, just starting at the ceiling tiles
        D               Bm                 C
And I'm thinking about, oh, what to think about
G      D               Am7                 G
 Just listening and re-listening to Smiley Smile
        D                    Bm              C
And I'm wondering if this is some kind of creative drought, because

G              D            Am7
 I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
         G          D                  Em      Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C | Em | Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C |
Well, I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

Am                  D              F            Em
 And if you want to find me I'll be out in the sandbox
Am              D                     G         F
 Just wondering where the hell all the love has gone
Am             D                F              Em
 Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun
Am   D                  G
 and singing "Fun, Fun, Fun"

              D            Am7
I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
         G          D                  Em      Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C | Em | Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C |
Well, I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

Am  E7     Am             E7             Am              E7           Am
 I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds and though I was very heavy
    E7                              Am
I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground
    E7            Am                E7
I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground
 Am               E7
Somebody help me, I couldn't see the ground
 Am              E7
Somebody help me, couldn't see the ground
 Am            E7
Somebody help me because I'm

G          D            Am7
 Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
         G          D                  Em      Em/C | Em/C# | Em/C |
Well, I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did

G      D                 Am7                         G
 Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night
        D                      Bm       C
Just to check out the late-night record shop
G          D                           Am7
 Call it impulsive, you can call it compulsive, you can call it insane
G               D                   Bm
 But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop
