1. Would anybody like to buy a flying machine?

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††

itís the dangdest thing that youíve ever seen!

††††††††† †††††††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Well you just turn these - called propellors - all around and around

††††††††† ††††D†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7††††††††††††

and the first thing you know, well youíre up off the ground,

††††††††† ††A†††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A7†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

and it may not be too graceful, but I tell you, baby, this thing can fly.


†††† D†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7

2. Could I interest anybody to purchase this wheel?


Iím kind of short now so Iíll make you a deal

††††††††† ††††G††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Well itís partly round and itís partly flat

††††††††† ††††D†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7††††††††††††

you can roll it down the hill, and stuff like that

††††††††† ††A†††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A7†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

and it may not be too useful, but I think itís kind of pretty, donít you?

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

†††† D7†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Bridge: Well Iíve been burning my brain both by day and by night

††††††††† †††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7

Cause Iím convinced that thereís a way to make lightning into light.

†††††††† G †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

And you just look funny at me and my kite

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††A†††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††A7††††

And say thereís ten Orville Wrongs for every Wilbur Wright.


†††† D†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7

3. Would anybody like to buy an interest in me?


Iíve got some songs you never heard on TV

††††††††† †††††G†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

and I am working on a theory that the world is a ball

††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††D7††††††††††††

and the you donít have to sail round India to reach St. Paul,

†††††† †††††A†††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A7†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††D

and I may not sing too pretty but Iím on the verge of something to say.
