[Verse]
E
Hey let's party, let's get down, let's turn the radio on,
            G
This is the meltdown.
            E
Get out the camera, take a picture,

The drag queens and the freaks
            G
Are all out on the town.
    A                C
And cowboy Jane's in bed
A                 C
Nursing a swollen head.


[Chorus]
E                    G
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustinov
      C                 A
Don't like the scene anyhow.
E                   G
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
        C                      A
Just to see what the fuss was about.

Now there goes the neighborhood.


[Verse]
E
  The photo chick made to look sickly
                                  G
Is standing in her panties in the shower.
              E
She plays the guitar in the bathroom
                                           G
While the police dust her mother's plastic flowers.
    A                  C
And Schooboy John's in jail
A                            C
Making a killing through the U.S. mail.


[Chorus]
E                    G
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustinov
      C                 A
Don't like the scene anyhow.
E                   G
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
        C                      A
Just to see what the fuss was about.

Now there goes the neighborhood.


[Interlude]
E  G  C  A
        E  G  C  A
Neighborhood.

Now there goes the neighborhood.


[Verse]
E
  This is the movie of the screenplay of the book
                         G
about a girl who meets a junkie.
        E
The messenger gets shot down just
                              G
for carrying the message to a flunkie.
E
We can't be certain who the villans
                       G
are 'cuz everyone's so pretty
        E
But the afterparty's sure to be
                                  G
a wing-ding as it moves into your city.


[Chorus]
E                    G
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustinov
      C                 A
Don't like the scene anyhow.
E                   G
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
        C                      A
Just to see what the fuss was about.
E                    G
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustinov
      C                 A
Don't like the scene anyhow.
E                   G
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
        C                     A
Just to see what the fuss was about.
                             E  G  C  A
Now there goes the neighborhood.
          E  G  C  A
Neighborhood.
                             E
Now there goes the neighborhood.
