The Mesopotamians  They Might Be Giants

The previous one wasn't 100% accurate!
[Dm]We've been driving a[Gm]round
[Dm]From one end of this [Gm]town to the [Bb]other and [C]back
[Bb]But no one's ever [F/A]seen [Bb]us (No one's ever [F/A]seen [Bb]us)
[Bb]Driving our E[F/A]cono[Bb]line [C]van (And no one's ever heard of our band)
And [A]no one's ever heard of our band
We're the Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi [G/B]-ans
[D/A]Sargon, [G]Hammurabi, [D/F#]Ashurbani -[Em]pal, and [A]Gilgamesh
[D]Then they wouldn't under[Bm]stand a word we [Em]say,
So we'll scratch it all [Gm]down into the [F#m]clay
Half believing there will [B]sometime come a [C]day
Someone gives a damn
[A]Maybe when the concrete has crumbled to sand
We're the Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi -[G/B]ans
[D/A]Sargon, [G]Hammurabi, [D/F#]Ashurbani -[Em]pal, and Gilga[Asus4]mesh
The Mesopotam-ish s[Dm]un is beating [Gm]down
[Dm]And making cracks in the [Gm]ground
But there's [Bb]nowhere else to [C]stand
In [Bb]Mesopo[F/A]tami[Bb]a, (No one's ever [F/A]seen [Bb]us)
The [Bb]kingdom where we [F/A]secret[Bb]ly [C]reign (And no one's ever heard of our band)
The [A]land where we invisibly rule
As the Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi -[G/B]ans
[D/A]Sargon, [G]Hammurabi, [D/F#]Ashurbani -[Em]pal, and [A]Gilgamesh
[D]This is my last [Bm]stick of gum
I'm going to [Em]cut it up so everybody [Gm]else gets some
Ex[F#m]cept for Ashurbanipal who [B]says my haircut [C]makes me look like a [A]Mohenjo-daroan
[A]Hey, Ashurbanipal,
I'm a Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi -[G/B]an
[D/A]Sargon, [G]Hammurabi, [D/F#]Ashurbani -[Em]pal, and Gilga[Asus4]mesh
We're the Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi -[G/B]ans
[D/A]Sargon, [G]Hammurabi, [D/F#]Ashurbani -[Em]pal, and Gilga[Asus4]mesh
"Hey, man, I [G]thought that [D/F#]you were [Em]dead[G/D]
I [C]thought you [C/B]crashed your [Am]car"[C/G]
"No, [E]man, I've [G/D]been right [A/C#]here this [A]whole time [E7]playing [E7/G#]bass gui[A]tar
For the Mesopotamians"
N.C. D D/C# G/B D/A G
We're the Mesopota-mi -ans
([D/F#]Sargon, [Em]Hammurabi, [A]Ashurbani[D]pal)[D/C#] [G/B] [D/A]
[G]Sargon, [D/F#]Hammurabi, [Em]Ashurbani[A/G]pal, and [Asus4]Gilgamesh
We're the Mesopo[D]ta-[D/C#]mi -[G/B]ans[D/A]
[G]Sargon, [D/F#]Hammurabi,[Em] Ashurban[A]ipal, and[D] Gilgamesh[D]
