Cmaj7 Fmaj7     Cmaj7 Fmaj7                      

Cmaj7                   Fmaj7                    
Who's that stomping all over my face?            
Cmaj7                       Fmaj7                
Where's that silhouette I'm trying to trace?     
Cmaj7                       Fmaj7                
Who's putting sponge in the bells I once rung    
Cmaj7              Fmaj7                     
And taking my gypsy before she's begun           
Am7                    Dm                    
To singing the meaning of what's in my mind      
Am7                         Dm                
Before I can take home what's rightfully mine.   
Am7                       Dm                    
Joinin' and listenin' and talkin' in rhymes      
Am7                     Dm                      
Stoppin' the feeling to wait for the times.      

F                        G                      
Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,      
Am        C     Dm  F Em7       Fmaj7    
'Cause nowadays Clancy can't       even sing.    

Cmaj7 Fmaj7     Cmaj7 Fmaj7                      

Cmaj7                     Fmaj7              
And who's all hung-up on that happiness thing?   
Cmaj7                        Fmaj7               
Who's trying to tune all the bells that he rings?
Cmaj7                   Fmaj7                
And who's in the corner and down on the floor    
Cmaj7                 Fmaj7                 
With pencil and paper just counting the score?   
Am7                          Dm              
And who's trying to act like he just in between? 
Am7                        Dm                
The night isn't black, it can only be screened.  
Am7                         Dm                  
Don't bother looking, you're too blind to see    
Am7                      Dm                      
Who's coming on like he wanted to be.            

F                        G                      
Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,      
Am        C     Dm  F Em7       Fmaj7    
'Cause nowadays Clancy can't       even sing.    

Cmaj7 Fmaj7     Cmaj7 Fmaj7                      

Cmaj7                        Fmaj7           
And who's coming home on the old ninty five?     
Cmaj7                     Fmaj7                  
Who's got the feeling to keep him alive,         
Cmaj7                 Fmaj7               
Though havin' it, sharin' it ain't quite the same
Cmaj7                     Fmaj7               
It ain't no gold nugget, you can't lay a claim   
Am7                           Dm                
Who's seeing eyes through the crack in the floor 
Am7                         Dm                  
There it is baby, don't you worry no more        
Am7                             Dm               
Who should be sleepin', but is writing this song 
Am7                     Dm                      
Wishin' and a-hopin' he weren't so damned wrong. 

F                        G                  
Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,  
Am        C     Dm   F Em7 Am        
'Cause nowadays Clancy can't even sing.      
F                        G                  
Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,  
Am        C     Dm  F Em7       Fmaj7
'Cause nowadays Clancy can't       even sing.
