Throwing candy out to the crowd

Dragging down the main

The helpless little thing with the dirty mouth

Who's always got something to say

You're sitting around at home now

Waiting for your brother to call

F G

I saw him down in the alley

Having had enough of it all

Said you can do what you want to whenever you want to

C Am Fm G

You can do what you want to there's no one to stop you

Verse 2:

G C

All spit and spite, you're up all night

Dm

And down every day

G

A tired man with only hours to go

C Dm

Just waiting to be taken away

G

Getting into the back of a car for

C Dm

Candy from some stranger

F G Fm

Watching the parade with pinpoint eyes

G

Full of smoldering anger

Chorus:

C Am Fm G

You can do what you want to whenever you want to

C Am Fm G

You can do what you want to, there's no one to stop you

C Am

Now you can do what you want to whenever you want to

C Am

Do what you want to whenever you want to

Do what you want to whenever you want to

C Dm

Though it doesn't mean a thing

Big Nothing
