I Heard Ramona Sing    
D       C       F
  I had so many problems
D            C        F
  And then I got me a Walkman
D          C          F
I really liked it a lot and
D                   C           F
  They walked right in and they solved them
D                   C           F
They walked right in and they solved them
G           C 
  I heard Ramona sing
Am            Cm
 And I heard everything
F                   G
  The speed they're traveling
C              Cm
  They are the only thing
A        E
There were moments in the night
C            E
It was all right
F                           G
  There were moments in the night
G           C 
  I heard Ramona sing
Am            Cm
  And I heard everything
F                   G
  The speed they're traveling
C              Cm
  They are the only thing
D  C  F / D  C  F
      D               C               F
I don't care if they're real or they're pseudo
        D            C       F
  I don't care if they get any higher
D           C         F
  I hope if someone retires
D            C        F (bis 4)
They pull another Menudo (bis 4)
D  C  F / D  C  F
F?                         G
There are moments in the night
C            E
 It was all right
F                          G

  I heard Ramona sing
Am            Cm
 And I heard everything
F                   G
The speed they're traveling
C              Cm
 They are the only thing

Oí a Ramona cantar

Yo tenía tantos problemas

Y luego conseguí un Walkman

Realmente me gustó esto mucho

Ellos andaban bien y los solucionaron


Oí a Ramona cantar

Y oí todo

La velocidad a la que viajaban

Ellos son lo mejor



Había momentos por la noche

Era bueno

Había momentos por la noche


No me importa si ellos son verdaderos o son pseudo

No me importa si ellos se ponen hasta arriba

Espero que si alguien se retira

Ellos tiren otro Menudo


Parry the Wind, High,Low
Opening riff:
D             D#   D            D#  G            G#
And if a ship meets your car
You know you can't go real far
Well they could treat you real nice
Or put a tracking device
Bb  A      
Way down inside
D   A  F    D  A  F   D#  A  F  [twice]
    D        A     F
I'm checking out inventions

Blue blond ladies of abduction

strumming guitars of instruction tonight
         D    A  F
A lot of wannabe truckers
       D         A   F         F#
Making eyes with starfuckers tonight
[opening riff again]
I've got my hands on some sights
Electric glasses with lights
They got me feeling deluxe
For just a couple of bucks
 Bb  A
Way down inside 
I'm getting patterns from a trekker
And it sounds like soul records to me
They're waving hi from some gazebo
Waving on to Arecibo to me
I'm getting patterns from a trekker
And it sounds like soul records to me
I'm getting patterns from a trekker
And it sounds like Desmond Dekker to me

Parry the wind high, low 





Parry el viento alto, bajo
Y si un barco encuentra tu coche
Sabes que no puede ir realmente lejos
Bien, ellos podrían tratarte realmente bien 
O ponerte un dispositivo de rastreo
Bajando dentro
Verifico invenciones
en la convención de OVNIS de esta noche
Los aviones encima del Hilton lo hacen al sol
Traígo mi dinero esta noche
Las damas azules rubias abducidas
las guitarras rasgueando de instrucción esta noche
Muchos camioneros 
Ojeando jodidas estrellas esta noche
Tengo mis manos sobre algunos monumentos
Cristales eléctricos con luces
Ellos me captaron sintiéndome de lujo
Para solamente un par de dólares
Bajando dentro
 Consigo el modelo de un trekker
Y esto me suena a discos de soul
Ellos agitan saludos de algún gazebo
Agitándome hacia Arecibo
Y esto me suena a Desmond Dekker
Máquina de sueño
En su silo
De ultramar
Cosas que nunca has visto
Parry el viento alto, bajo
