You walk into the room with your pencil in your hand 
Bm/A                                             Bm/G# 
You see somebody naked and you say, "Who is that man?" 
G                                    Em 
You try so hard but you don't understand 
D                         F#                     Bm      
Just what you'll say when you get home 
D                                A 
Because something is happening here 
Bm                                      G 
But you don't know what it is 
Bm  G                  Bm 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
You raise up your head and you ask, "Is this where it is?" 
And somebody points to you and says "It's his" 
And you say, "What's mine?" 
And somebody else says, "Where what is?" 
And you say, "Oh my God 
Am I here all alone?" 
But something is happening  
And you don't know what it is 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
You hand in your ticket 
And you go watch the geek 
Who immediately walks up to you 
When he hears you speak 
And says, "How does it feel 
to be such a freak?" 
And you say, "Impossible" 
As he hands you a bone 
And something is happening here 
But you don't know what it is 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
Bm                                   Bm/A 
You have many contacts among the lumberjacks 
     G                                        Bm 
To get you facts when someone attacks your imagination 
                                            Bm/A 
But nobody has any respect anyway they already expect you 
G                                 Em 
To all give a check to tax-deductible 
                       A7 
Charity organizations 
 
Bm                                                     Bm/Bb 
You've been with the professors and they've all liked your looks 
Bm/A                                                     Bm/G# 
With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks 
G                                         Em 
You've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books 
D                                F# 
You're very well read it's well known 
D                          A 
But something is happening here 
Bm                              G 
And you don't know what it is 
Bm  G                 Bm 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
Well, the sword swallower 
He comes up to you 
And then he kneels 
He crosses himself 
And then he clicks his high heels 
And without further notice 
He asks you how it feels 
And he says, "Here is your throat back 
Thanks for the loan" 
And you know something is happening  
But you don't know what it is 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
Now you see this one-eyed midget 
Shouting the word "NOW" 
And you say, "For what reason?" 
And he says, "How?" 
And you say, "What does this mean?" 
And he screams back, "You're a cow 
Give me some milk or else go home" 
And you know something is happening
But you don't know what it is 
Do you, Mister Jones? 
 
Well, you walk into the room 
Like a camel and then you frown 
You put your eyes in your pocket 
And your nose on the ground 
There ought to be a law 
Against you comin' around 
You should be made to wear earphones* 
Cause something is happening  
And you don't know what it is 
Do you, Mister Jones?
