Song Author Jason Mraz Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]Who  [G#m] is h    [A]e, Mr. [B]Rand Mcnally?[E]    [G#m]    [A]    [B]    
[E]I   [G#m]had I [A]dream that myste[B]ry was me. [E]Now who [G#m]else could I be[A]?   [B]    
[E]I dreamed [G#m]I went to England a[A]nd met the [B]spice girls there f[E]or tea

They [G#m]lost one more they're [A]down from four to my [B]favorite number
But they're [G#m]still quite [A]spicy as the o[B]range flavor
And [E]oh so nice to [G#m]do me the favor and [A]lick my icing [B]under the

table now
[C#m]But I gotta leave [F#]town mr. Nally, j[C#m]ust as scary spice was about
to go [F#]down on me
And don't ask [C#m]how mr. Nally and give up the [F#]towel mr. Nally and
[C#m]run'     [F#]    

[E]I dreamed [G#m]I went to Singapor[A]e got bored and r[B]obbed a liquor
What for? [G#m]Nobody knows I [A]only took a [B]couple of Marlboros
[E]Oh but that was [G#m]all they needed[A] and the crimi[B]nal was soon
And [G#m]now in jail I'm [A]waiting for my [B]punishment of c[C#m]aining
So I gotta think f[F#]ast mr nally watch your [C#m]ass, wake up and la[F#]ugh   
and r[C#m]un     [F#]    
Better [C#m]Mr run, mr rand, m[F#]r mac, mr nally
Mr [C#m]run, mr man, you got the [F#]knack for the rally' And [C#m]run'     [F#]    

[E]I had a chance to [G#m]visit the north [A]pole but it was wa[B]y too cold
to smok[E]e  
Oh my[G#m] nose was freezing I [A]should could use some [B]coughing and

[E]So I [G#m]tried it [A]anyway and the [B]place went up in fla[E]mes  
How was[G#m] I suppose to [A]know you could catch [B]fire to the s[C#m]now    
Oh lord way to [F#]go mr nally, way to [C#m]go, now you're melting the
[F#]poles mr nally so ru[C#m]n.     [F#]    

[E]I jumped ship in [G#m]NYC and [A]headed south to [B]Washington DC
[E]Didn't [G#m]think I'd go there but [A]played some shows there [B]fancy
lucky me[E]    
But it is [G#m]really slow there[A] with our new [B]president on TV[E]    
Too man[G#m]y politicians and [A]liberal Christians they're [B]all set out
for me[C#m]    
Singing cast your [F#]vote mr nally, castrate your vot[C#m]e, no you
[F#]don't, just run[C#m]'     [F#]    

[E]I thumbed a ride [G#m]across the prairie,[A] I got hitched in [B]Vegas,
yep, I got m[E]arried
To a [G#m]lady who loved me she [A]thought it's be funny to [B]gamble all

my money
[E]And I got [G#m]stranded without my [A]clothes, a little bit of [B]fear and
loathing [E]heart attac[G#m]k    
I got [A]chased by the rat pack [B]once in a flashback. Singin[C#m]g viva
Las Vegas'[F#]    

[E]I settled down i[G#m]n san diego[A] and smoked a [B]joint with java joe[E]    
And with a grin[G#m] he took me in spil[A]ling coffee on his chin[B]    
[E]And I [G#m]played my show the[A]re and I met my bro[B]'s there
[E]And with[G#m] my throw pillow they [A]kindly let me make my b[B]ed there
[E]There's one more [G#m]thing before I [A]go there's never been [B]any place
[E]like this home, and [G#m]once in a lifetime [A]maybe I'll be f[B]oolish not to stay

Who is he, Mr. Rand Mcnally?
I had I dream that mystery was me. Now who else could I be?
I dreamed I went to England and met the spice girls there for tea

They lost one more they're down from four to my favorite number
But they're still quite spicy as the orange flavor
And oh so nice to do me the favor and lick my icing under the

table now
But I gotta leave town mr. Nally, just as scary spice was about
to go down on me
And don't ask how mr. Nally and give up the towel mr. Nally and

I dreamed I went to Singapore got bored and robbed a liquor
What for? Nobody knows I only took a couple of Marlboros
Oh but that was all they needed and the criminal was soon
And now in jail I'm waiting for my punishment of caining
So I gotta think fast mr nally watch your ass, wake up and laugh
and run
Better Mr run, mr rand, mr mac, mr nally
Mr run, mr man, you got the knack for the rally' And run'

I had a chance to visit the north pole but it was way too cold
to smoke
Oh my nose was freezing I should could use some coughing and

So I tried it anyway and the place went up in flames
How was I suppose to know you could catch fire to the snow
Oh lord way to go mr nally, way to go, now you're melting the
poles mr nally so run.

I jumped ship in NYC and headed south to Washington DC
Didn't think I'd go there but played some shows there fancy
lucky me
But it is really slow there with our new president on TV
Too many politicians and liberal Christians they're all set out
for me
Singing cast your vote mr nally, castrate your vote, no you
don't, just run'

I thumbed a ride across the prairie, I got hitched in Vegas,
yep, I got married
To a lady who loved me she thought it's be funny to gamble all

my money
And I got stranded without my clothes, a little bit of fear and
loathing heart attack
I got chased by the rat pack once in a flashback. Singing viva
Las Vegas'

I settled down in san diego and smoked a joint with java joe
And with a grin he took me in spilling coffee on his chin
And I played my show there and I met my bro's there
And with my throw pillow they kindly let me make my bed there
There's one more thing before I go there's never been any place
like this home, and once in a lifetime maybe I'll be foolish not to stay
