Another Postcard  Barenaked Ladies

Tabbed by David Bédard-Barrette, McGill University, Canada, March 2004

This song is the first single out of the Everything to Everyone CD. If you like
chimps, this is your song! I agree that this is not the best song to play all
by yourself, but if you're a hardcore BNL fan like me, every song is fun to
play at the guitar !
No capo and standard tuning. Any corrections are welcome !

Intro
[-----]  
(C#m, A, F#m, B) x 2
C#m, A, Fm
1st Verse
 
 ---------

You can't [Esus4]imagine so many monkeys in the daily mail
All of them coming anonymously so they leave no trail
I never [Esus4]thought I'd have an admirer from overseas
But someone is sending me stationary filled with chimpanzees.
2nd Verse (you can choose to palm mute those chords if you want)
 
 ---------

Some chimps in [E]swimsuits, some chimps are [Asus2]swinging from a vine
Some chimps in [E]jackboots, some chimps that [Asus2]wish they could be mine.
Starsky and [E]Hutch chimps, a chimp who's [Asus2]sitting on the can
A pair of [E]Dutch chimps who send their [Asus2]love from Amsterdam.
Chorus
 
 ------

Another [E]postcard with [Asus2]chimpan[Bsus4]zees[Asus2]
And every [E]one is add[Asus2]ressed to [Bsus4]me.[Asus2]
Another[E] postcard with[Asus2] chimpa[Bsus4]nzees[Asus2]
And every [E]one is add[Asus2]ressed to [Bsus4]me.[Asus2]
3rd Verse
 
 ---------

If I had to [Esus4]guess, I'd say the monkey-sender thinks it's great
He's sending me, maybe she's sending me just to see me get irate
I'm losing [Esus4]sleep - and it's gonna be keeping me up all night
I thought it was funny, but now I've got money on a monkey fight.
4th Verse (you can choose to palm mute those chords if you want)
 
 ---------

Some chimps in [E]hard hats, chimps a-working [Asus2]on a chain gang
Some chimps who [E]love cats, burning rubber [Asus2]in a Mustang
A birthday-[E]wishing chimp, a chimp in [Asus2]black like a goth
A goin' [E]fishin' chimp, a British [Asus2]chimp in the bath.
Chorus
 
 ------

Another [E]postcard with [Asus2]chimpan[Bsus4]zees[Asus2]
And every [E]one is add[Asus2]ressed to [Bsus4]me.[Asus2]
Another[E] postcard with[Asus2] chimpa[Bsus4]nzees[Asus2]
And every [E]one is add[Asus2]ressed to [Bsus4]me.[Asus2]
5th Verse
 
 ---------

Somehow they [Esus4]followed me even though I packed and moved my home
No matter what, they come and they come they won't leave me alone
Another [Esus4]monkey in the mail could make me lose my mind
But look at me shuffling through the stack until I finally find
Bridge
 
 ------

Some chimps in [E]sw[E]imsuits
Some chimps in Jackboots
Some chimps in [E]ha[E]rd hats
Some chimps who love cats
I've got some [E]sh[E]aved chimps; that's chimps devoid of any hair
I've got [E]de[E]praved chimps dressed up in women's underwear.
Another p[C#m]ostcard with [A]chimpan[F#m]zees[B]
And every [C#m]one is ad[A]dressed to [F#m]me.[B]
[C#m]Every one is, [A]every one is, [F#m]every one is ad[B]dressed to me.
[C#m]Every one is, [A]every one is, [F#m]every one is addressed to me.
Chorus
