Ain't No Good

Cake

    G                      C
She's gonna hand you a red-headed Gabriel, 
G                        D
Coming from the bar in a plastic tie. 
G                         C
He's gonna swing from the Tree of Life. 
G                               D
He's gonna try to sell you on a great big lie. 

Chorus:
C                  
But when you speak to her, 
    D
Her eyes light up. 
G                      Em
The music spills right into your cup. 
C                          D
The minstrels play and the waitress brings ice. 
G
There are pies on a carousel. 
Em
Have a slice. 
C
But watch out. 
    D     pause                G (silence)
She ain't no good for you. 

Verse 2:
G                        C
He's gonna spin like the tractor pull. 
G                       D
She'll sit back when he tells his tale. 
G                       C
He's gonna yell when he drinks his beer. 
G                         D
She'll sit back and drink ginger ale. 

Chorus:
But when you speak to her, 
Her eyes light up. 
The music spills right into your cup. 
It's so abrupt and it's so concise. 
There are pies on a carousel. 
Have a slice. 
But watch out. 
D            G        Em
She ain't no good for you. 
C
I say watch out. 
D                              G
She ain't no good for you. 

Bridge- Electric Guitar solo (haven't quite got that yet sorry)

C                     D
She'd like to put you in her zoo, 
      G                            Em
Right between the canaries and the cockatoos. 
       C                   
She'll pull out your feathers 
        D
For her brand new hat, 
G   
And when she's done that 
       Em
She'll feed you to her cat. 
C
So watch out. 
D           G         Em
She ain't no good for you. 
C
Watch out. 
D          G          Em
She ain't no good for you.
C 
Watch out. 
D                          G-Cadd9-G-D-G
She ain't no good for you.
