The telephone, the telephone
I have an idea

Women always have ideas(continue verse riff)

 (continue verse riff)
Who? Wrong connection
This is...
B5
I am a moralist
an anti-militarist
I am against duels
I cannot stand seeing a fly in rage 
I cannot look at a uniform or blood
 C#5
That woman has seduced me
And now I am done for
That woman has seduced me
And now I am done for
(continue verse riff)
Darling where shall I
hide you in a hurry
Darling where shall I
hide you in a hurry
 (chorus)
 (continue chorus riff)
I am coming
Directly from the trenches
And look forward 
To a solemn luncheon
 (continue verse riff)
Oh my nerves!
I'm losing my mind
Oh my nerves!
I'm losing my mind
  B5
This damned telephone
Spoils my favorite position
  C#5
And now I can start
Writing poetry again

(End on vocal ad lib. Experiment and have fun with the outro. That's all
the femmes are doing, really. It just sounds like Gordon is making agreeable
noise with the guitar by moving his fingers all over the fretboard while
speed-picking(mostly around the nineteenth fret).Experiment and then end).

  These are the chords mentioned above:
