Absolute Zero

Hear the version from 'Mistaken Identity":
             A
Well, I take Rosie out on Mondays,
       D
And on Tuesdays I see Sue,
        A
Then on Wednesdays I see Sarah --
Lord, she knows just what to do.
   D
On Thursdays I see Lisa,
and on Fridays Anna Lee.
       E
Then I give myself a break;
          E
I like to keep me weekends free.

   D
My friends say, "Jake, you gotta settle down.
       A
You're gonna regret your ways."
       D
But if you think I'll ever stop running 'round,
      E
I got news for you:
        E
that'll never be true.
     E                       D
I'm afraid that I ain't gonna ever change,
          E      D               A
'Cause my heart's at absolute zero.

[solo over blues in A while saying something along the lines of:]

Now, absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature. It's 273.15 degrees below zero Celsius, which is as cold as it gets.
It's also the temperature at which all molecular motion ceases, so for the purposes of this song, it's sort of a stand-in for stasis.
That's where I was going with that.
Anyway, I think that's enough chemistry for today.
         D
Well you know all the ladies love me;
  A
I sure try to treat them fine.
       D
And if they ain't having a real good time,
       E                     D
well I know it sure ain't my fault!

I take Rosie out on Mondays,
And on Tuesdays I see Sue,
Then on Wednesdays I see Sarah—
Lord, she knows just what to do.
Then on Thursdays I see Lisa,
and on Fridays Anna Lee.
Then I give myself a break;
I like to keep me weekends free.

My friends say, "Jake, you gotta settle down.
You're totally out of control."
But if you think I'll ever stop running 'round,
I got news for you:
that'll never be true.
I'm afraid that I ain't gonna ever change,
'Cause my heart's at absolute zero.

I know that I ain't gonna ever change,
'Cause my heart's at absolute zero.
