tabber: John Baer (
*There is a lack of tabs for Mass Romantic online. I intend to fill the void.*
*Don't Forget to check out my tabs from Electric version also.*
Intro: A (electric)
Verse 1
[A]I'm told the eventual downfall is just a [A/G#]bill from the [F#m]restaurant.
You told me I could [D]order the moon, babe,[A] just as long as I shoot what I want.
What the last ten minutes have taught me: be[A/G#]t the hand that your [F#m]money's on.
Where the hell have the [D]'70s brought me? You [A]trade me away long gone.
Chorus 1
F[A]or the love of a g[D]od, you say, [E]not a letter from an o[D]ccupant[E].
[A] [A/G#] [F#m] [D]  
 ("ooo-weee-ooo-eeeoooo-oooweeeooo-weeeeoooo-oooo") (x2)

Verse 2
[A]The time that your enemy gives you, good[A/G#] times are not the [F#m]ones you want.
I cried five [D]rivers on the way here, [A]which one will you skate away on?
The tune you'll be humming forever, all the [A/G#]words are r[F#m]eplaced and wrong,
with a shower of y[D]eahs and whatevers, you [A]trade me away long gone.
Chorus 2
[A]For the love of a [D]god, you say,[E] not a letter from an [D]occupan[E]t.
[A] [A/G#] [F#m] [D]  
 "ooo-weee-ooo-eeeoooo-oooweeeooo-weeeeoooo-oooo" (x2)

[A]Where have all sens[E]ations gone? Wher[A]e have all sensatio[D]ns gone? (x2)
[A]"Ommlllalal[E]mmamlall[A]allal[D]a" (or something like that.)
Chorus 2
For the love of[D] a god, you say, [E]not a letter from an [D]occupant[E]. (x3)
[D]The song, the song, the song that's shaking m[E]e.
*Repeat Chorus 1 (x2), go into the 'ooos' (x2) and end on A.
-Cheers, J.B.
