D                       G       D
all around there's a beautiful smell
        G               D       A
and you can't smell nothing else
           Bm           G               D
it's the smell...of everything that we expel
        D       G               Bm G A
DO DO DO DO DO...
 
D                               G       D
in this town...there are cars and trucks
        G         D             A
in this town are cars and trucks
        Bm                      G       A
in this world...there are streets and avenues
        D       
...and all around
        G         D
there is mmm and AAH
        G           D       A
all around there's MMM and AAH
                        Bm      
then there's this forgotten little murmur 
            G             D
they call nothing much at all...
 
                D                       G
you're such a happening fish flopping on me;
            Bm                    G             A
throughout all this time...so complicated and unfree
        D                       G
from a young boy...with a tail
        Bm              
into a fish with a b-book or two published
G         A     
DO DO DO DO DO DO DO
 
D                       G           D
i love you...because you don't know why
                G       D       A
you don't know why you feel resentful
        Bm              G               D
and you weep...and sometimes you are cruel.
[D, maybe Bm?]            G       D
i love you...because you took a stand
             G       D          A
for those of us who are the weaker
                  Bm
'cause we're not fakes.
            G                   D       
we are the wild and we are the screwed.
 
G          C            G
you and i might have a lot to learn;
     D     Em                           C
but we're shot out of the earth and we tumble into holes.
    D    Em
in the interim
                        C               G
we're spinning and we don't know how to fall
     D    Em                               C            G
all the idiots WHO'RE talking don't know anything at all...
     D          Em      
all the famous idiots WHO'RE talking
             C          G
don't know anything at all.
