Certain People I Could Name They Might Be Giants
Song: Certain People I Could Name
Album: Long Tall Weekend
The [D]few surv[A]iving [D]samura[A]i sur[D]vey the [A]battle[D]field[A]
Co[D]unt the [A]arms, the [D]legs and [A]heads and [D]then [A]divide by [D]5[A]
[G]Drenched in [G]blood they [G]move a[G]cross the [D]scre[A]en[D] [A]
[G]Do I [G]need to [G]point or [G]do you [Em]see the [Em]one I [A]mean
The [A]one in [D]back, the [D]way he [G]acts
Is [G]he rem[G]inding [G]you of [Em]anyo[A]ne we [D]know
Isn[D]'t he [G]so like [G]certain [Em]people [A]I could [D]name
Fill: Bm E A D G C# F#
Halfway through the thirty minutes
Halfway `round the world
Here's the story on the genocidal overlord
in her palace with her epaulettes
Watch her little gestures as she lights her cigarette
Look at her you must see it too
Is she reminding you of anyone we know?
Isn't she so like certain people I could name?
Fill: Bm E A D G C# F# (x2 slightly different scond time )
Disembodied and detached
A voice describes the scene
As a lizard stalks a helpless creature on tv
The music underscores the tragedy
Eyes with no expression watch the unsuspecting prey
Who is it like?
Doesn't it strike you as the very image of someone we know?
Isn't it so like certain people
How could anybody miss the obvious and the uncanny and the clear resemblance?
Isn't it just like certain people I could name?
Outro: Bm E A D G C# F#
