Lucy Kaplanski My Name Joe written by David Massengill

F
Joe threw another tantrum
A#
He could not to be understood
D# A#
He cries like baby Samson
F
His English is not good

Joe's boss of the kitchen
A#
But on the outside he knows
D# A#
Low man on the totem's
F
Wearing giveaway clothes

Joe he fights the good fight
A#
He wears a white uniform
D# A#
The waiters are all artists
F
Out chasing unicorns

Joe works fourteen hours
A#
After ten he starts to booze
D# A#
He gets very sentimental
F
Oh he sings the buddah blues
D# A# F
He sings the buddah blues
A# D#
My name Joe my name Joe
A# D# A# D# A#
There is a king in Thailand
D# F D# A# D# A#
And he plays the jazz drum
A# D# A# D# A#
He has a fine and healthy son
D# F D# A#
Oh no I'm not the one
D# A# F
My name Joe
F
On the wall by the time clock
A#
Joe's beaming from a photograph
D# A#
Someone drew across his face
F
The waiters began to laugh

Joe picked up a hatchet
A#
And he tenderized the wall
D# A#
And when he got through
F
Time clock wasn't punching anymore

The waiters ran for cover
A#
The maitre d' began to lisp
D# A#
The drunkard in the corner
F
Said his lettuce was not crisp

Owner called immigration
A#
Said there's someone you should know
D# A#
He's an illegal alien
F
And I think his name is Joe
D# A# F
Oh I know his name is Joe
A# D#
My name Joe my name Joe
A# D# A# D# A#
There is a king in Thailand

Oh no I'm not the one
D# A# F
My name Joe
F
Came the man from immigration
Bb
Said I've got a job to do
D# A#
Easy questions easy answers
F
Just point me to the kitchen crew

He asked Leroy from Harlem
A#
He asked Cisco from Mexico
D# A#
He asked the white trash from Tennessee
F
Thet all said my name Joe

My name Joe my name Joe
F
The maitre d' he sputtered
A#
The kitchen crew they roared
D# A#
And while they were arguing
F
Joe slipped out the back door

On the beach Joe tries to listen
A#
To the heartbeat of a whale
D# A#
How it echoes his own heartbeat
F
And the distance he has sailed
D# A# F
Oh the distance he has sailed
A# D#
My name Joe my name Joe
A# D# A# D# A#
There is a king in Thailand
D# F D# A# D# A#
And he plays the jazz drum
A# D# A# D# A#
He has a fine and healthy son
D# F D# A#
Oh no I'm not the one
D# A# F
My name Joe
