†† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††

1. The tunnel of love leads to the gates of wisdom, and the

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† A††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††

hall of mirrors and the house of fun.

†† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††D††††††††††††††††††††††††

Itís out of the frying pan and into the microwave and

E††††††††† †††††††††††††G††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††A††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††

this minstrelís wandering days are done.

†† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††

Rentiní was easy, and it kept you free

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††E††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

but thereís nothing like painting the walls of your very own property

††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Chorus: House of fun, oh yeah, house of fun

E††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††F#m†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

It ainít no palace but itís all our own

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† F#m††††††††††††

It eats our money, and our lives it will haunt

D††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C#m†† E††††† ††A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

but we can paint it any color we want.

†† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††D††††††††††††††††††††††††

2. At the end of the rainbow thereís a wanted poster, if you

E†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

catch Ďem alive then thereís a big reward..

†† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††D††††††††††††††††††††††††

But Iíve got a one-way ticket to wherever we are right now

E†††††††††††† ††††††††††††G††††††††††††† †††††††††A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

you tell that conductor Iím all aboard.

†† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††A††††††††††††††††††††††††

I dreamed I signed my name in the book of doom

G††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††E††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††A

That was symbolic of the mortgage, I assume.

 

Chorus

 

†† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††

3. The moment of truth opens the window of opportunity, then thereís

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††G††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

bundles of joy, but itís a can of worms.

†† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††

I never thought that I would affix my signature

E†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

until you offered such easy terms.

†† D††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††A††††††††††††††††††††††††

So now we close, and here it comes!

G††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††††††††††††††† A

Our leap of faith into our house of fun.
