[Intro]

C    Am    F  C  G  C


[Verse 1]

C                         Am
Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy !
F              C        G 
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.
C                  Am
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singing,
F         C         G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.


[Verse 2]

C                              Am
There's a giant doing cartwheels, a statue wearin' high heels,
F               C             G
look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
C                  Am
A dinosaur Victrola, listening to Buck Owens
F         C         G            C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.


[Chorus]

G                          F            C
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band,
                    Am          G
won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon ?
C                     Am
Wond'rous apparition, provided by magician,
F        C           G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.

[Chorus]

G                          F            C
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band,
                    Am          G
won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon ?
C                   Am
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrows,
F        C          G           C
doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door.
