Picture book!

(repeat intro)

verse 2

A picture of you... in your birthday suit
You sat in the sun on a hot afternoon.
Picture Book, you momma and your poppa, your fat old Uncle Charlie,
a-boozing (cruising?) with their freinds.
Picture Book, a holiday in August,
outside a bed and breakfast, in sunny South Bend.
Picture Book, those days when you were happy,
when you were just a baby, a long time ago...
Na, na, na, na, na, na... (x4)
Picture Book! (x4)

(single guitar)
Picture Book, Na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na, na...
A scooby-dooby-doo...

(entire band)

Picture Book, Na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na, na...
A scooby-dooby-doo...

Picture Book, pictures of your momma,
Taken by you poppa, a long time ago
A Long time ago... (x4)

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Outro (basically same as intro)

About the artist behind Picture Book Tab:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
