G
You started drinking the Kool-Aid

We were taking the bait

We were talking big talk

Never playing it safe

Looking good as Jane Fonda
C
On a Vietnam tank
D
Can't get something for nothing
G
Have to energize your base

Pre Chorus : 
C
But she was young enough
C
She was blonde enough
C                        G
She was about a perfect ten
C
Had millions of admirers 
C                    D
but not a single friend

Chorus : 
G                                C
And it's a, it's a little uncanny what she managed to do

Become a symbol for a pain she never knew

You know old Ronnie Reagan
C
He was a shoe salesman's son

He got himself in the movies

He impressed everyone
G
He thought trial by fire
C
Was America's fate
D
He made a joke of the poor people
G
And that made him a saint

Pre Chorus : 
C
But he was tan enough, he was rich enough
C                         G
He was handsome like John Wayne

And there was no one at the country club
                     D
Who didn't feel the same

Chorus : 
          G
But it's a, it's a little uncanny
C
What he managed to do
D                       C                           G
Got me to read those Russian authors through and through

I miss Sylvia Plath
G
Every morning's a desert
C
Every night is a flood
D
They say a party can kill you

Well sometimes I wish it would

Pre Chorus : 
C
But I'll get strong enough, I'll be man enough
C                  G
To keep myself in check
C
'Cause all my friends that flew to town
C                      D
Said that's what they expect

Chorus : 
G
But it's a, it's a little uncanny
C
What they managed to do

Made me admit to things I knew were never true
