$1.00

[D]I'm cleaning up myself
Like an [A]old closet shelf
[A]Chucking all the junk
That can [D]get me in a funk

[D]I'm working on myself
[D]Scraping and a' sweepin'
[A]Cleaning up my act
Til it's [D]really squeaky clean

Chorus

[D]I'm cleanin' and a' [G]rubbin'
[D]Fixing and a'[A] scrubbin'
[D]I'm a' freeing [G]myself
From [A] negativi[D]ty

I'm a' [D]washing and a' [G]sloshing
[D]Sorting and a'[A] sifting
[D]I'm a' making my [G]self
Just as [A]free as I can [D]be

Instrumental chorus (2x): D G D A D G A D

I'm washing all the laundry
From that old stinky pile
Even the smelly old socks
That been hiding there awhile

Once you get well started
On a project such as this
The more you clean the more you notice
All the little things you've missed

Chorus

Instrumental chorus (2x): D G D A D G A D

I'm sortin' through my habits
And I'm tossin' out the trash
I'm sellin' off my upsets
And I'm pocketing the cash

Everything that I find
I'm inspectin' once or twice
An' carefully I'm checking
If it's virtuous or vice

Chorus

Instrumental chorus (2x): D G D A D G A D

If my shelf's all cluttered
And it's full of dirty mess
Then I have to keep it shuttered
Or I'll get embarrassed

But when it's bright and tidy
Then it's ready for what's best
And precious things can be there
Like a higher consciousness

Chorus
