Astronaut  Tripod

[Gm]  I know what you're all wonde[D#]ring
Have Tripod ever been to [Gm]Japan     [Gm]
But you're ignoring a much bigger [D#]question
Why don't the Japanese have a space [A#]program
Why aren't there any Japanese [D#]astronauts
[A#]  Have you ever seen a Japanese [F#]astronau__[G#]______t
I'll tell you [C]why you haven't seen one
[D#]  I'll tell you why


You [A#]can't do the Japanese [F]Tea Ceremony [D#]when you're an astro[Gm]naut
It's those damn [F]fat gloves
And you [A#]can't do the Japanese [F]Tea Ceremony [D#]when you're in zero [Gm]grav
Cos the tea goes [F]everywhere
The tea goes every[Gm]where
[Gm]  Japanese culture's always fansci[D#]nated me
From their traditions to their modern way of [Gm]life
But all their elegance and rich his[D#]tory
Doesn't sit well with my interest in [A#]space
Because you [A#]can't carry out a ninja style assassi[F]nation [D#]dressed as an astro[Gm]naut
It's the luminous [F]fabric (you're too visible)
And they [A#]don't let you use a [F]samurai sword [D#]when you're an astro[Gm]naut
You might punctu[F]re the suit
You might de[Gm]pressurize
[F] Like a gremlin in a [Gm]microwa__[F#]___ve
[G#]  But it's those damn [C#]fat gloves
They're the main [F]problem
You [F#]can't nurture your tama[C#]gotchi
You can't [F]make an origami [F#]swan
Have you [G#]ever tried to get a used [A]panty vending mac[A#M]hine into a space [D#]shuttle
Well [D#]I've tried and they don't [C#]let you
Fucking NASA red [F#]tape
Interlude:
[Gm]    [D#]     [Gm]    [D#]     [A#]     [D#]     [A#]     [D#]    

[Gm] I couldn't reconcile the two things that I [D#]loved
So I threw away my dreams of oute[Gm]r space
I had to find myself a whole new[D#] job
Maybe in the sports arena I would find a [A#]place

But you [A#]can't do a Japanese [F]Tea Ceremony [D#]when you're a boxing [Gm]champ
It's those damned [F]fat gloves again
Those [A#]confounded puffy mitts loom in [F]front of my face [D#]every night in [Gm]bed
I'm haunted by [F]fat gloves
You [A#]can't drink sake, you can't do bukkake
Or [F]ride a Kawasaki
[D#]When you're an astro[F#]naut
F#(let ring) G#(let ring)
And they don't let you be an astronaut on Japanese tele
A#(let ring)
Cos you're not enough of a red herring

[Em]  Japanese culture's always fansci[C]nated me

Doesn't sit well with my interest in [G]space
Because you [G]can't carry out a ninja style assassi[D]nation [C]dressed as an astr[Em]onaut
It's the luminous [D]fabric (you're too visible)
And they [G]don't let you(Ooooh) use a [D]samurai sword [C]when you're an astro[Em]naut
You might punctu[D]re the suit
You might de[Em]pressurize
