Intro

I was (G) supposed to have been a Jesuit priest
or a (C) Naval Academy (G) grad 
(C) That was the way that my (G) parents perceived me 
(A) Those were the plans that they (D) had     
But I (C) couldn't fit the part too (G) dumb or too smart      
Ain't it (C) funny how we (G) all turned (D) out       
I guess (C) we are the (G) people our parents (D) warned us a(G)bout

You know I (G) coulda worked the rigs when the money was big
Or hopped a (C) freighter south to Trini(G)dad
And when they (C) tried to draft me I earned a (G) college degree
Buyin' (A) time 'til things were not so (D) bad
But (C) then I got a guitar found a (G) job in a bar
Playin' (C) acid rock 'til (G) I was nu(D)mb
Tell me (C) where are the (G) flashbacks they all (D) warned us would (G) come
     
We are the (D) people, they couldn't figure (G) out
We are the (D) people our parents warned us a(G)bout
(C) Hey hey, (D) Gardner Mc(G)Kay
(D) Take us on the (C) Leaky (G) Tiki (C) with (G) you
(C) Clear (D) skies (G) bound for Shanghai
(D) Sailing cross the (C) ocean (G) blue 
 
Now (G) I got quarters in my loafers tryin' to fight inflation
When it (C) only used to take a (G) cent
Sometimes I (C) wish I was back in my (G) crashpad days
(A) 'Fore I knew what cash flow (D) meant
Seems (C) everybody's joggin' or (G) heavy into health s**t
Don't (C) tell me that I (G) ought to get (D) rolfed
'Cause I love (C) cajun mart(G)inis and playin' (D) afternoon (G) golf

We are the (D) people there isn't any (G) doubt
We are the (D) people they still can't figure (G) out
We are the (D) people who love to sing "Twist and (G) Shout"
SHAKE IT UP BABY

We are the (D) people our parents warned us a(G)bout   
Id'n' any doubt (D)
Hey hey (G) hey (C)   
Gardner Mc(G)Kay (C)
I wanna sail away to(G)day (C)   
They warned us a(G)bout (C)   
Hey hey (G) hey (C)  
C'mon now Gardner Mc(G)Kay (C)   
I wanna sail away to(G)day (C)

Fade out
