Intro:
(Guitar under violin riff)
D - Bm - A


Verse 1:
D   (drone alternating D and A eighth notes)             

My dewey-eyed Disney bride what has tried
                            Bm
swapping your blood with formaldehyde
A
Monsters?

D
Whiskey-plied voices cried fratricide
                                   Bm  
Jesus don't you know that you coulda died, you shoulda died
         A
with the monsters what talk    
                            D 
monsters that walk the earth     


Chorus 1:
 D/C#      Bm      
She's got red lipstick
                     D
and a bright pair of shoes
              A
and she's got knee high socks
                Em           
what to cover a bruise
 (F#)            G
She's got an old death kit
                     D
she's been meaning to use, she's got
A                        Bm (bass E)
blood in her eyes in her eyes for you
          G           A                       D
she's got blood       in her eyes for you


(Repeat intro violin riff over A chord)


Verse 2:
D (drone...)

Certain fads, stripes and plaids, singles ads
                            Bm
run you hot and cold like a rheostat I mean a thermostat
       A
so you bite on a towel
                            D
hope it won't hurt too bad

My dewey-eyed Disney bride what has tried
                            Bm
swapping your blood with formaldehyde?
         A
with the monsters what talk    
                            D 
monsters that walk the earth     


Chorus 2:
D/C#         Bm                             D
She says I like long walks and sci-fi movies
A                                   Em   (F#)
you're six foot tall and east coast bred
G                        D
Some lonely night we can get together
A                      Bm
and I'm gonna tie your wrists with leather
    G            A              D
and drill a tiny hole into your head
              G            A                       D
Oh, I'm gonna drill a tiny hooooooole... into your head


(Repeat intro violin riff over D chord to end)
