(play this bar also over the verses)

1.Verse:  When you wake in the morning and the light has hurt your head 
          The first thing ya do when you get up outta bed 
          is hit the streets a-runnin` and try to beat the masses
          `n`go get yourself some cheap sunglasses

2.Verse:  I spied a little thing and i foolwed her all night. 
          In her funky fine Levi`s and her sweater`s kinda tight. 
          She had a West Coast strut that was sweet as molasses.
          But what really knocked me out was her cheap sunglasses

3.Verse:  Now go out nget yourself some thick black frames 
          with the glass so dark they wont even know your name.
          And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes
          rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses.
