Song Title: THE SUSPENDER MAN
Artist / Singer: STEAM POWERED GIRAFFE

One Moonlight Night!

Banjo/Accordion intro

Dm Bb
One moonlight night in the bayou a silhouette
F C
The air was sweet and the fog was vi-o-let
Dm Bb
The gators were all drinking tea, in a dreamy pantsless glee
F C
I saw a suspendered man, a banjo holstered in his hands.
Dm Bb
He had biggest red suspenders I ever did see, golly gee that’s what I’ve seen
F C
He flicked the brim of his hat, and this is what he said to me.

Dm Bb
“Mister robot ah am The Suspender Man
F C
And dis banjo ‘as shown me dah promised land.
Dm Bb
Now ah play a song but in return, yoo put dat shiny coin right ‘ere in mah urn.
F C
And ah play yoo sumfin fine. Mah music gonna blow yo mind!”

Dm Gm
So I flicked my coin into his pot, I gotta admit it twasn’t a lot
Dm
Two cents and then his fingers wriggled,
C
he plucked those strings and belched a giggle.
Dm
He tapped his foot, howled like a hound
Gm Dm
Igniting up the unholy sound.

Dm
And I ain’t never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never,
Am7
never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never,
C Dm
never, never, never, never, never, heard anything so great.

Dm
Call the vendors.
Bb
Big Suspenders.
F C Dm
That’s what everybody wants to wear.
Dm
They stretch to Nantucket.
Bb
Put them in a bucket
F C Dm
And send them to the gnome trapped down the well
Dm
(Tug ’em with thumbs is ideal)
Dm
(While rollin’ back on your heels)

Dm (Let ring)
(Yeah)

He played the two cent show

Dm
And just like that he stopped playing
Bb
My jaw dropped to the floor.
F
He cracked his neck and smiled at me, And said,
C
“Buddy, y’gotta pay for more!”

Dm
But by then a crowd had swarmed the swamp,
Bb
tossin’ coin in after coin.
Dm Dm
So he cleared his throat, and his fingers writhed,
Bb Dm
and everyone shouted for Suspender Guy.

Dm
Call the vendors
Bb
Big Suspenders
F C Dm
That’s what grandma wants for her birthday
Dm
They’re bright red and awesome
Bb
Even worn by opossums
F C Dm
Nobody wants their pants to fall down

Dm
(Ma and Pappy want ’em too)
Dm
(Even the ghost of your Uncle Stu)

Dm(let Ring)
(Yeah)

He played the two cent show

Fracture dat banjo!

(Under Banjo Solo)

Dm, Bb, F, C x4

Dm
All the children sing and dance
Bb
Those banjo sounds instill a trance
Dm
By 4 AM the press what hot
C
Suspender Man on the front page spot
Dm
Suspenders were in and spats were out
Bb
The girls all suffered from fainting bouts
Dm
The banjos flew off the shelves
Bb F
Sprouting wings with dreams
C Dm
of being played by Suspender Man.

Dm
But in the middle of February
Bb
the fog turned a crimson red
F
The Suspender Man disappeared,
C Dm
everyone was heels over head
Dm
But we found his suspenders and that old banjo
Bb
sittin’ right here on his log

Dm
And though he’s gone,
Dm
that’s what he gets
C Dm
for selling his soul to the bog

Dm
Big Suspenders
Bb
Put them in a blender
F C Dm
Three bat teeth and a blackened gypsy eye
Dm
Bring it to a boil
Bb
Release your mortal coil
F C Dm
Out pops a belt to wear for you and me-
Dm C Dm
Nobody wants their pants to fall down-
Dm C Dm
You could wear a dress and then…you’d have no need

Dm
(The alligators had it right)
Dm
(Wearing pants it sure does bite)

Dm (let ring)
(Yeah)

Dm
He played the two cent show……

End..
