Skipper Dan chords Guitar Chords Weird Al

Skipper Dan chords Guitar Chords Weird Al

I stared in every high school play
Blew every drama teacher away
Graduated first in my class at Juilliard
Took every acting workshop I could
And I dreamed of Hollywood
While I read my Uda Hagen
And studied the Bard

That’s not the way that it’s all worked out

CHORUS

D#m C# B F#
I’m a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

B F# C#
Skipper Dan is the name

D#m C# B F# B F# C#
And I’m doing 34 shows every day, and every time it’s the same

D#m C# B F#
Look at those hippos, they’re wiggling their ears

B C#
Just like they’ve done for the last 50 years

D#m C# B F#
Now I’m laughing at my own jokes, but I’m crying inside

A B BACK TO INTRO/VERSE RIFF
‘Cause I’m working on the Jungle Cruise ride

VERSE 2
(Con’t Riff throughout)

Oh the critics they used to say, I was the new Olivier
Thought I’d be the toast of Sundance, or maybe Cannes

PRECHORUS
F# B F#5
Ah, but don’t bother trying to IMDB me,

F# B F#5
The only place you might possibly see me,

F# B F#
Is riding my little boat around Adventureland,

B
It ain’t exactly what I planned but

CHORUS

D#m C# B F#
I’m a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

B F# C#
Skipper Dan is the name

D#m C# B F# B F# C#
And I’m doing 34 shows every day, and every time it’s the same

D#m C# B F#
I would’ve killed if I’d been in Speed-the-Plow

B C#
But what’s the difference that’s all behind me now

D#m C# B F#
‘Cause I’m paying the rent and I’m swallowing my pride

B C# F#
And I’m working on the Jungle Cruise ride

BRIDGE
(KEY CHANGE TO G)

A B E C#m
I should be there on Broadway, knocking ’em dead in 12 Angry Men

A B
But instead I’m here telling these lame jokes

(BACK TO KEY OF E)

C#
Again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again!

REPEAT CHORUS CHORDS FROM EARLIER OVER THE JUNGLE JOKES

[Bengal tigers can jump over 20 feet…
That’s an African Bull-Elephant…
There it is the backside of water! What have I done with my life?]

LAST CHORUS W/ CHANGE

D#m C# B F#
I should’ve listened when my Grandfather said

B C#
Why don’t you major in business instead?

D#m C# B F#
Now my hopes are vanished and my dreams have all died

B C# D#m C# B F#
Tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride

B F# C#
Skipper Dan is the name

D#m C# B F# B C#
And I’m doing 34 shows every day, and every time it’s the same

D#m C# B F#
Look at those hippos, they’re wiggling their ears

B C#
Somebody shoot me ’cause I’m bored to tears!

D#m C# B F#
Always said I’d be famous, I guess that I lied

B C# D#m
‘Cause I’m working on the Jungle Cruise ride

B C# F#
I’m still working on the Jungle Cruise rid
