Illegal Smile Ukulele Chords

[C]When I woke up this [G]morning, [F]things were lookin’ [C]bad
[F]Seem like total [C]silence was the [G]only friend I [C]had
[G]Bowl of oatmeal [F]tried to stare me [C]down [F]and [C]won
And it was [G]twelve o’clock before I [F]realized
That I was [C]havin’ [F]no [C]fun

But [G]fortunately I [C]have the key to es[F]cape re[G]ali[C]ty
And you may [F]see me tonight with an [C]illegal smile
It don’t [G]cost very much, but it [C]lasts a long while
Won’t you [F]please tell the man I didn’t [C]kill anyone
No I’m [G]just tryin’ to [F]have me some [C]fun

Last [C]time I checked my [G]bankroll,
[F]It was gettin’ [C]thin
Some[F]times it seems like the [C]bottom
Is the [G]only place I’ve [C]been
I [G]chased a rainbow [F]down a one-way [C]street [F]dead [C]end
And [G]all my friends turned [F]out to be in[C]surance [F]sales[C]men

But [G]fortunately I [C]have the key to es[F]cape re[G]ali[C]ty
And you may [F]see me tonight with an [C]illegal smile
It don’t [G]cost very much, but it [C]lasts a long while
Won’t you [F]please tell the man I didn’t [C]kill anyone
No I’m [G]just tryin’ to [F]have me some [C]fun

Well, I [C]sat down in my [G]closet with [F]all my over[C]alls
[F]Tryin’ to get a[C]way
From all the [G]ears inside my [C]walls
I [G]dreamed the police [F]heard
Everything I [C]thought [F]what [C]then?
Well I [G]went to court
And the [F]judge’s name [C]was [F]Hoff[C]man

But [G]fortunately I [C]have the key to es[F]cape re[G]ali[C]ty
And you may [F]see me tonight with an [C]illegal smile
It don’t [G]cost very much, but it [C]lasts a long while
Won’t you [F]please tell the man I didn’t [C]kill anyone
No I’m [G]just tryin’ to [F]have me some [C]fun
Well done, son of a gun, hot dog bun, Attila the Hun, my sister’s a nun [F] [C]
