[Chorus]
                      Am            G        F
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
                    Am      G          F
Get along with the voices inside of my head
                  Am           G            F
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
                   Am          G              F
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

[Verse I]
             Am                         G
I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek
       F
Oh well, guess beggars can't be choosy
            Am                     G
Wanted to receive attention for my music
             F
Wanted to be left alone in public. Excuse me
               Am                       G
For wanting my cake and eat it too, and wanting it both ways
     F
Fame made me a balloon 'cause my ego inflated
       Am                       G
When I blew; see, but it was confusing
                       F
'Cause all I wanted to do is be the Bruce Lee of loose leaf
 Am         G                        F
Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam (ooh!)

Hit the lottery, oh wee
Am                     G
With what I gave up to get was bittersweet
       F
It was like winning a used me
                Am                                 G
Ironic 'cause I think I'm getting so huge I need a shrink
                 F
I'm beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep
                 Am                 G
Going cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
                              F
But I'm actually weirder than you think

'Cause I'm

[Chorus]
                      Am            G        F
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
                    Am      G          F
Get along with the voices inside of my head
                  Am           G            F
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
                   Am          G              F
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

                     Am  G  F   -  Am  G  F
Well, that's not fair
                     Am  G  F   -  Am  G  F
Well, that's not fair

[Verse II]
                          Am                   G
No, I ain't much of a poet but I know somebody once told me
               F
To seize the moment and don't squander it
                              Am
'Cause you never know when it all could be over tomorrow
G                    F
So I keep conjuring, sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from
 Am                      G
(Yeah, ponder it, do you want this?
                      F
It's no wonder you're losing your mind, the way it wanders)
         Am
Yo-lo-lo-le-i-hoo! (LOL)
                    G                  F
I think you've been wandering off down yonder

And stumbled onto Jeff Van Vonderen
Am                    G
 Cause I need an interventionist
        F
To intervene between me and this monster
                   Am                G
And save me from myself and all this conflict
                             F
'Cause the very thing that I love's killing me and I can't conquer it
Am         G
 My OCD is conking me in the head
F
Keep knocking, nobody's home, I'm sleepwalking
Am                          G
 I'm just relaying what the voice in my head's saying
       F
Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just friends with the

[Chorus]
                      Am            G        F
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
                    Am      G          F
Get along with the voices inside of my head
                  Am           G            F
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
                   Am          G              F
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

                     Am  G  F   -  Am  G  F
Well, that's not fair
                     Am  G  F   -  Am  G  F
Well, that's not fair

[Verse III]
        Am                    G
Call me crazy, but I had this vision
             F
One day that I'd walk amongst you a regular civilian
          Am                    G
But until then drums get killed and I'm coming straight at
F
MCs, blood get spilled and I
                    Am                   G
Take it back to the days that I get on a Dre track
           F
Give every kid who got played that
                              Am
Pumped up feeling and shit to say back
       G
To the kids who played 'em
        F
I ain't here to save the fucking children
              Am                 G
But if one kid out of a hundred million
                        F
Who are going through a struggle feels and then relates that's so great
     Am               G
It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
F                                            Am
In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that
      G                  F
Straw into gold chump, I will spin Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack
Am                  G                 F
 Maybe I need a straight jacket, face facts

I am nuts for real, but I'm okay with that
     (No Chords)
It's nothing, I'm still friends with the

                      Am            G        F      |
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed    |
                    Am      G          F            |2
Get along with the voices inside of my head         |Times
                  Am           G            F       |
