Well, the Humanoid Boogie's got the humanoid hip-types


Jumpin' and-a jivin'


Burnin' out their energy cells like an infrared hot dog

A7         
Motorbike heart beats flutter to the stutter 

                                                     E7 
Of the humanoid heart-throb sobbin' out a tickertape tune


By the light of the moon

B7                                     A7  
Bleep bleep keep rockin' daddy, do the stroll

            E7
Because the Humanoid Boogie's full of humanoid rock and roll 



E7
Mad Dan Sugar Man and Henrietta Holocaust


Introduce to you what's new on the humanoid scene


It's a wow, it's a scream

A7          
Knick knack paddywack, give a dog a humanoid

                                        E7  
Let's have fun, gonna get a personality cell

       
If all goes well
B7                 
                       A7
Bleep bleep keep rockin' daddy, catch the power!

            E7 
Because the Humanoid Boogie's been requested on Two-way Humanoid


Hour

**"nc" indicates that no chord is to be played here.


***Interesting fingering for E7:

E---7----
A---0----
D---7----
G---6----
B---7----
E---0----


****Note: although this is taken from the Bonzos version, the live GRIMMS version uses the same chords, but with more wild screaming and self-indulgent guitar solos!


*****Also:  Although the song has a kind of "seventh" sound, major chords can also be substituted for the sevenths.


          The humanoid scene is a wow and a scream, ain't that the truth!
