2nd Verse
You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced.
You've got it all
You've got it sized.
Like a Friday fashion show
Teenager cruising in the corner
Trying to look like you don't try.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That cinnamon, that's Hollywood.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see you try.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That freezing rain, that's what you could.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see you cry.

This sugar cane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see me cry.

This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see me cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That's who you are, that's what you could.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see you cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That's who you are, that's what you could.
Come on, come on.
No-one can see you cry.

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's really all about?

(Just wanted to get that up in case the dog sat on my powerbar or such ...)

This is an easy song, no frightening stretches, easy strumming pattern and I play Bm as xx0432 so no barres.

Haven't played it in a few weeks but finally restrung the Takemine (LOVE new strings but still procrastinate ), realized I was ready to roll, and out it came:

(For those of you who don't know me, I've been playing guitar for almost 3 years now but I got my start right here at guitarnoise, in the Beginner Lessons and then in the Beginner Videos
No danger of me turning into Lady Gaga anytime soon but now that my youngest is FINALLY out of diapers I am one step closer to my dream of busking at the local farmer's market )
