1. There's a guy in the place, he's got a bittersweet face,

                   A

    and he goes by the name of Ebeneezer Goode.

             Em

    His friends call him Eezer and he is the main geezer.

                    A

    and he'll vibe about the place like no other man could.

              Em

    He's refined, sublime, he makes you feel fine.

                   A

    though very much maligned and misunderstood.

         Em

    But if you know Eezer, he's a real crowd pleaser,

             A

    he's ever so good, he's Ebeneezer Goode.

 

                  Em

2. You can see that he's mysterious, mischievious and devious,

     A

    as he circulates amongst the people in the place,

           Em

    but once you know he's fun and something of a genius,

           A

    he gives a grin that grows around from face to face to face,

     Em

    backwards and then forwards, forwards and then backwards.

      A

    Eezer is the geezer who loves to muscle in,

    Em

    that's about the time the crowd all shout the name of Eezer,

                  A

    as he's kotcheled in the corner, laughing by the bass bin.

 

 Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 

    Em - A

+              He's Ebeneezer Goode !

            Em                                   A

    Has anybody got any veras? Lovely !

    Em                     A       - Em - A

    Ya ha ha ha ha ha.

    Em                     A       - Em - A

    Ya ha ha ha ha ha.

3. Ebeneezer Goode, leading light of the scene,

                            A

    know what I mean, see, he created the vibe.

           Em

    He takes you for a ride, and as if by design

            A

    the party ignites like he's comin alive.

          Em

    He takes you to the top, shakes you all around,

                       A

    then back down, you know, as he gets mellow.

                       Em

    Then as smooth as the groove that is making you move,

           A

    he glides into your mind with a sunny "Hello!"

 

         Em

4. A gentleman of leisure, he's there for your pleasure,

                A

    but go easy on old Eezer, he's the love you could lose.

          Em

    Extraordinary fellow, like Mr. Punchinello,

      A

    he's the kind of geezer who must never be abused.

       Em

    When you're in town and Ebeneezer is around,

      A

    you can sense a presence in the sound of the crowd.

          Em

    He gets them all at it, the party starts rocking,

             A

    the people get excited, it's time to shout loud.

 

 Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 Em                 - A

Em                 - A

Eezer, Eezer,        he's Ebeneezer Goode !

 

    Em - A

Em - A

     Em                                       - A
