   A               A/G                     
When he was young he sang in the band 
      F                            E 
and his fans all fans all looked the same 
      A                A/G                             
And the fans he had were younger than he  
       F                   E 
and they loved to scream his name 
     C                      G#         C                      D# 
They'd leave at the end of the third show, go home to talk of the fun 



   A                 A/G               
Well isn't it nice the parents would say, 
F                      E 
well isn't nice you've got someone 
A             A/G     
Someone to idolize 
 F                   E 
he must look twice his size 
A                      A/G             F      E 
I think it's great, you're going through a phase 
A                            A/G          F             E  Dsus2  C  B   
And I'm awfully glad it will all be over in a couple of days. 



A                                 A/G                     
Well the calendar changed and the pages fell off 
      F                   E 
but the singer remained the same 
     A                   A/G                         
And he never grew tired of singing his song 
  F                     E 
and his fans still called his name 
   C                      G#             C                   D# 
They'd leave at the end of the second show, go home to talk of the fun 
  A                     A/G                     F               A 
For most of the fans were married by then, so they had to be in by one 




 A                 A/G                                 
I'm awfully glad the husbands would say 
  F                    E 
I'm awfully glad you got someone 
A            A/G      F                      E 
Someone I realize, who used to look twice his size 
A                   A/G             F        E 
I think it's great you still remember his name 
    A                       A/G         
And I'll bet if he knew you were there for the show 
      F                E  Dsus2  C  B 
He'd be awfully glad you came 



  A                 A/G         
"The time has come," the Walrus said, 
 F              E 
"to speak of other things" 
     A               A/G                           
Like a fallen star who works in a bar 
    F            E 
where Yesterday is king 
  C                     G#              C                  D#           
The fans will stay for an hour or so, they still remember his fame 
      A                 A/G            F-let ring             
But the time has come the Walrus said, to call your fans by name 
   A    A/G    F         E    A    A/G    F    E 
by name          Do dah de doobie dah dah doo doo yah yahhaa
