the end of the world as we know it Great Big Sea

I normally get through the first verse, and mumble my way through the other ones. At parties, most people don't notice. If all else fails.......and it will fail...........go back to the chorus, it's the only part everyone knows anyone. Enjoy, TIM THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT G C That's great it starts with an earthquake G Birds and snakes and aeroplanes C Lenny Bruce is not afraid G Eye of a hurricane listen to yourself churn C World serves its own needs dummy serve your own needs G Speed it up a notch speed grunt nose street burn C The ladder starts to clatter with dinner fight down height Bb Wire in a fire room represent the southern gangs A In a government for hire and a combat site Lefty wasn't coming in a hurry With the furies breathing down your neck Team by team reporters grapple trunk tethered crop Look at that low plane fine then Uh oh overflow population cornered But it'll do save yourself serve yourself World serves its own needs listen to your heartbeat Tell me that the reds are in the reverend in the right right You patriotic patriotic slam fight right might feeling pretty psyched G D Am It's the end of the world as we know it G D Am It's the end of the world as we know it G D Am C It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine Six oclock TV hour don't get caught foreign tower Slice and burn return listen to yourself churn lock him in uniform And book-burning blood-letting every motive escalate Automotive incinerate light a candle light a motive Step down step down watching heel crush crush Uh oh this means no fear cavalier renegade steer clear A tournament a tournament a tournament of lies Offer me solutions offer me alternatives and I decline It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine The other night I drifted nice continental trip to find Mount Saint Edelite Leonard Bernstein Leonid Brezhnev Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs Birthday party cheesecake jellybeans boom You symbiotic patriotic slam foot neck right right Chorus
