When you get up in the morning and the light is hurtin' your head.
The first thing you do when you get up out of bed
Is hit that street a-runnin' and try to meet the masses.
Gm [stop chord]
And go get yourself some cheap sunglasses.

SUNG UNDER TRANSITION LICK:
Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!
I spot a little thing and I followed her all night.
In a funky pair of Levis and her sweater's kind of tight.
She had a West Coast strut that was as sweet as molasses.
But what really knocked me out was her cheap sunglasses.

SOLO OVER: Cm7 Bb Cm7 Dm7 D
INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE & SOLO REPRISE:
Now go out and get yourself some big black frames
With the glass so dark, they won't even know your name.
And the choice is up to you, 'cause they come in two classes:
Rhinestone shades and cheap sunglasses.
OUTRO: Solo over funky Gm7 & out
