C                A 
You only got one finger left 
         F               C 
And it's pointing at the door 
And you're taking for granted 
What the Lord's laid on the floor 
  

So I'm picking up the pieces 
And I'm putting them up for sale 
Throw your meal ticket out the window 
Put your skeletons in jail

G                                   C 
'Cause Lord only knows it's getting late 
G                                 C 
Your senses are gone so don't you hesitate 
F                  A             C               A 
To give yourself a call let your bottom dollars fall 
G#                     G              C 
Throwing your two bit cares down the drain 
  

Invite me to the seven seas like some seasick man 
You will do whatever you please and I'll do whatever I can 
Titantic, fare thee well, my eyes are turning pink 
Don't call us when the new age gets old enough to drink 
  

'Cause Lord only knows it's getting late 
Your senses are gone so don't you hesitate 
Move on up the hill there's nothing dead left to kill 
Throwing your two bit cares down the drain

Going back to Houston

*In the recent CMJ article, Beck says the original title of the song was 
"Aurele"(a Chicano exclamatory slang, which according to Beck is "somewhere 
between [the meaning's of] 'salut' or 'l'chaim' ") but the engineer heard 
the chorus wrong and wrote down "O-de-lay".  In the end, Beck liked the 
way "Odelay" looked better. So, really, he is intending to say "Aurele".
