Particle Man  They Might Be Giants

Particle Man (live acoustic version)
They Might Be Giants
This is a great little tune by They Might Be Giants, but I haven't seen any tabs or chords for it out there,
so I decided to do it myself :).
This is my first attempt at doing a song--sorry for any mistakes! (but it sounds pretty close when I play it)
This was done from the live acoustic version on 120 Minutes on MTV, but it shouldn't be too different
from the album version. Listen to the recording for strumming patterns, etc.
[C]Particle man, particle man
[C]Doing the things [G]a particle can
[F]What's he like? [C]It's not important
[C]Particle man
[C]Is he a dot, [F]or is he a speck?
[G]When he's underwater does [C]he get wet?
[F]Or does the water get [G]him instead?
[F]Nobody knows, [C]Particle man
(slight pause while acordian plays--guitar holds out C chord)
[C]Triangle man, Triangle man
[C]Triangle man hates [G]particle man
[F]They have a fight, [C]Triangle wins
[C]Triangle man
(bridge with acordian solo--the guitar just plays C for a while, then G then C)
[C]Universe man, Universe man
[C]Size of the entire [G]universe man
[F]Usually kind to [C]smaller man
[C]Universe man
[C]He's got a watch with a [F]minute hand,
[G]Millenium hand and an [C]eon hand
[F]When they meet it's a [G]happy land
[F]Powerful man, [C]universe man
(slight pause while acordian plays softly strum C)
[C]Person man, person man
[C]Hit on the head with a [G]frying pan
[F]Lives his life in a [C]garbage can
[C]Person man
[C]Is he a mess or [F]is he depressed?
[G]Does he feel totally [C]worthless?
[F]Who came up with [G]person man?
[F]Degraded man, [C]person man
(slight pause while acordian plays--guitar holds out C chord)
[C]Triangle man, triangle man
[C]Triangle man hates [G]person man
[F]They have a fight, [C]triangle wins
[C]Triangle man
(then the same accordian solo plays twice and the song ends)
