1. Iím sweeping the carpet for Susie Baker

†††† †††††Am†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F†††††††††††††

Sheís Billís secretary and probably someoneís girl

††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Am††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

and Iíve never met her, but her ash tray

††† F††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††† E7††††††††††

is lumpy and plain, not the kind that she deserves.

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

2. The smile on her desk drawer is Susie Baker.

†††† Am†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F†††††††††††††

Itís Salem she smokes; sheís my American dream.

††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Am†††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††

And Bill works for the FBI or something.

†† †††††F††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††† E7††††††††††

Her mittens are fuzzy, and the stripes are green

3. The telephoneís ringing for Susie Baker

Am†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F††††††††††† ††

Maybe itís that man she fired for being crazy


J. Edgar Hoover, please authorize me

††† F††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E††††††† E7†††††††††

I wish I could answer, just to say that sheís not there.
