Opposite Day

Andrew Bird

 C
 I got home this morning with the sun right in my eyes
 Ab
And there was no warning as it took me by surprise as it
 Am
 Hit me like an Act of God, causing my alarm
 Ab
That I had now become a cephalopod

I still had legs and arms

Still had legs and arms

 Am7D7
Today was supposed to be the day
 EmGC
That Molecules decide to change their form
 DGG7
Laws of physics lose their sway     
 Am7D7EmG
 Youthful indiscretion now is suddenly the norm
 AA7
 With the good kids sprouting horns, yeah yeah

And today was supposed to be

 C5Bb5A5Ab5
         Not just another day
 C5Bb5A5Ab5
         Today was supposed to be
 C5Bb5A5Ab5
         Not just another day
 C5Bb5A5Ab5
 It was supposed to be, today was supposed to be
 C
 Opposite Day!

Intro

Same as Before! All together, With Feeling!

Those who can't quite function in society at large

They've got to wake up on this morning to find that they're in charge

But those the world's set up for, who are really doing quite well

They're going to wake up in institutions

In prison or in hell

Prison or in hell

Today was supposed to be the day

Molecules decide to change their form

Laws of physics lose their sway

Youthful indiscretion now is suddenly the norm

With the good kids sprouting horns, yeah yeah

And today was supposed to be

Not just another day

Today was supposed to be

Not just another day

Today was supposed to be

Not just another day

Toady was supposed to be

Not just another day

It was supposed to be, today was supposed to be

OPPOSITE DAY!

(ahem...) In this part for the d and C chords you pluck the bass then pluck the two
strings and for the A and G Chordds you pluck the bass then the G string and B String... Got
I have the violin part two, but if someone would show me how to make tabs I'd be
to show it. (shrugs)
 D7sus2

 GCA7
  Well you're right, there is
D7sus2 G, C! (pause with some antica..... Pation, and go!)
There's something else
 D7sus2GCA7
But if you think I'm gonna tell you, think again  
 D7sus2GCA7
Why should I even think of telling you what there is    

(This picking pattern is easy, It's thumb, fore finger, middle finger. Here's how you do
You pluck the bass with your thumb and then you pluck with your forefinger the G string
then the B string... Easy! Sorry)
 D7G
Yeah, 'cause silence is knowledge
 CA7
     And knowledge is power
 D7GC
I'm under explicit orders to dare not speak its name
 A7
Hey Listen up, I just work here
 D7GC
 Oh I dare not speak its name
 A7
I can't keep talking about it
D7 G C* Cmaj7
Oh, I dare not speak its name

Ta Da, sorry about the long windedness, i'm new at this
