  Tommy Del Mar learned his anglais from reading his Thrasher magazines

   G                      C

and from all that listening to the Ramones.

"Como se dices 'Como se dices?'"

 D5                       C5

  So Tommy got smart, Tommy got listo

   G5                  D5

    took a long, hard look at his Thrasher revista.

   E5                        C5

    For every trick he picked up came un punado de palabras.

   G5                                D5

   Su vocabularia outgrew "ollie" y "McTwistas"

   E5                     C5        G            C    G

    "What means this word 'geeks'?"

   G                        C

   Ahora, Tommy has his own band 

   G                         C

 and you'd swear they were from the shores, man.

   G                               C

    I'm talking sudamerica, 

   D5                          C5
