I swore I wouldn’t use the same 2 chords,
back and forth between the I and IV
swore I wouldn’t write that song again, like 100 times before..

I swore I wouldn’t let you down this time,
it’s turning into such a tired rhyme,
but when I looked around tonight, it was all that I could find..
+++ and you think you’re in the jungle, but you’re really at the zoo,
+++ you only see the animals they want you to,
+++ and you were hoping for a lion, but I’m just a kangaroo…

I swore I wouldn’t make the same mistake,
cross my heart, the lord my soul to take,
but I’ve got promises to break, and a ghost I just can’t lose..
+++ so you think you’re in the movies, but you’re really on the moon,
+++ and everybody’s gonna fly away so soon,
+++ you thought you saw a spaceship, that was just the weatherman’s balloon…

I swore I wouldn’t use the same 2 chords,
but I can play them all night long and not get bored
you’re expecting something new, that’s what I can’t afford..
+++ and we think you’re in the jungle, but we’re really at the zoo,
+++ we only see the animals they want you to,
+++ and I was hoping for a lion, but I found a kangaroo…

I swore I wouldn’t use the same 2 chords…
