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

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


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

Now there goes the neighborhood.


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


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

Now there goes the neighborhood.


[Interlude]
C  D#  G#  F
        C  D#  G#  F
Neighborhood.

Now there goes the neighborhood.


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


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