 G                       C

   G                                  C



  Tommy Del Mar learned his anglais from reading his Thrasher magazines



   G                      C



and from all that listening to the Ramones.



   D5                           C5



"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
