Opposite Day  Andrew Bird

Man, good thing I figure out songs easy by ear because I can never find the chords or
I want, but what are you going to do? Enjoy!
Intro: C, Ab, Am, Ab
[C]I got home this morning with the sun right in my eyes
And there [Ab]was no warning as it took me by surprise as it
[Am]Hit me like an Act of God, causing my alarm
That I had [Ab]now become a cephalopod
I still had legs and arms
Still had legs and arms
To[Am7]day was supposed to [D7]be the day
That [Em]Molecules de[G]cide to change their [C]form
Laws of [D]physics lose their [G]sway[G7]
[Am7]Youthful indi[D7]scretion now is [Em]suddenly the [G]norm
[A]With the [A7]good kids sprouting horns, yeah yeah
And today was supposed to be
[C5] [Bb5] [A5] Not j[Ab5]ust another day
[C5] [Bb5] [A5] Tod[Ab5]ay was supposed to be
[C5] [Bb5] [A5] Not j[Ab5]ust another day
[C5]It was supposed to [Bb5]be, tod[A5]ay was supposed to [Ab5]be
[C]Opposite Day!
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
(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)
But if you think there's something [D7sus2]else
[G] Well you're [C]right, there [A7]is
D7sus2 G, C! (pause with some antica..... Pation, and go!)
There's something else
But if you think I'm gonna [D7sus2]tell you, [G]think a[C]gain[A7]
Why should I e[D7sus2]ven think of [G]telling you what there [C]is[A7]
(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)
Yeah, 'cause [D7]silence is [G]knowledge
[C] And knowledge is [A7]power
I'm under [D7]explicit orders to [G]dare not speak its [C]name
Hey Listen up, [A7]I just work here
[D7]Oh I [G]dare not speak its [C]name
I can't keep [A7]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
