A  Bm                 D E
     Try wearing my head over yours
A  Bm                D E
     And see if it fits then wear it
A  Bm                D E
     Try taking my mind for a spin
A  Bm             D E
     I抦 Doctor Hyde while you抮e Tim
 
A  Bm                D   E
     No need to be scared of an accident
A  Bm           D E
     I put the safety lock on
A  Bm                  D  E
     I'll hang out at home for the day while
A  Bm              D E
     You lead my head astray
 
Bm   G
  Try me
D        A
  Out and see
Bm              G
  What makes it better
         A   G
Makes it worse
 
A  Bm                  D E
     You're going to need the manual
A  Bm                    D E
     Well I'll take it down and dust it off
A  Bm                D E
     The pages have yet to see the day
A  Bm           D E
     I give it all away
 
Bm    G
  I've laughed it
D    A
  Off and now it's
Bm  G
  On your
E
Shoulders

D                       E
If only the world would rearrange
D
With the trading of brains
      E
We're still the same
 
D
You're looking just as strange
Bm
I'm in the dark again
        C          D       A
And I'm passing it off to you
 
(A) Bm              D E
     I wish to remain just The Headless One
A  Bm                  D E
     Which means it's you who sings this song
A  Bm            D   E               A
     If I am to sing, I'll set my freedom
   Bm           D   E
     I laugh it off, I'm laughing
 
Bm    G    D    A
  Ha   Ha   Ha   Ha
Bm   G
  Ha   Ha
