A              E               |D                     A   |
Sunday morning woke up yawning, filled the pool for a swim.
A                      E                           |D            A   |
Hold down the head and looked in the glass, just to see if I was in.
A                      E              |D                    A
Went up the stairs and kissed my women,  to make her come a-live.

CHORUS:
           |A                  E
'Cause with fifteen kids and a family on the skids,
        |D               A    |
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
A                  E
Fifteen kids and a family on the skids,

                         / (Break of 2-counts)

That's how they are, so I grabbed out the car, con-vertible fifty-nine.
A             E                |D                 A   |
Headed to the freeway, tried to find the Pasadena sign.
A                   E                 |D                  A
Ten miles and three quarters, I wasn't feeling any more a-live.

CHORUS:
           |A                  E
'Cause with fifteen kids and a family on the skids,

 |A            E                    |D                        A   |
I used to be a minstrel free, with a whole lot of bread in my bag.
A                        E                     |D                    A
  I used to feel that my life was real, but the good Lord threw me a snag.
   |A                E             |D            A
Now I'm gonna be the same as me, no matter how I try.

CHORUS:
           |A                  E
'Cause with fifteen kids and a family on the skids,

Turned 'round the car and headed for home, I guess I realized my fate.
A                   E               |D                     A   |
Ten miles and three quarters more, I pulled up outside the gate.
A                     E                |D                A
Twenty more kids were stood inside, and that made thirty-five.

CHORUS:
              |A                 E
'Cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids,

Hold down the glass and looked in the mirror, just to see if I was in.

About the artist behind Marley Purt Drive:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
