The Old Apartment  Barenaked Ladies

[G]Broke i[D]nto the old ap[C]artment
[G]This is [D]where we used to liv[C]e
[G]Broken glas[D]s, broke and hungr[C]y
Broken hearts and broken bones
[G]This is [D]where we used to liv[C]e
[Em]Why d[D]id you paint the wa[G]lls? [C]
[Em]Why d[D]id you clean the fl[G]oor? [C]
[Em]Why di[D]d you plaster ove[C]r the[D] hole I punched in the door?
[G]This is wh[D]ere we used to liv[C]e
[G]Why d[D]id you keep the m[C]ousetrap?
[G]Why did you [D]keep the dish[C]rack?
[G]These things [D]used to be m[C]ine
I guess they still are, I want them [D]back
[G]Broke i[D]nto the old ap[C]artment
[G]Forty-t[D]wo stairs from the st[C]reet
[G]Crooked l[D]anding, crooked l[C]andlord
[G]Narrow l[D]aneway filled with [C]crooks.
[G]This is w[D]here we used to li[C]ve.
[Em]Why d[D]id they pave the [G]lawn?  [C]
[Em]Why d[D]id they change the [G]locks?  [C]
[Em]Why d[D]id I have to b[C]reak it, I only came here to [D]talk
[G]This is w[D]here we used to l[C]ive
[G]How is[D] the neighbor [C]downstairs?
How is her temper this year?
[G]I turned up[D] your tv and [C]stomped on the floor just for [D]fun
[Em]I kn[D]ow we donít li[G]ve here any[C]more
[Em]We bo[D]ught an old h[G]ouse on the da[C]nforth
[Em]She l[D]oves me and her [G]body keeps me w[C]arm
[Em]Iím ha[D]ppy here
[G]             [D]                  [C]      
But this is where we used to live
[G]Broke i[D]nto the old ap[C]artment
[G]Tore the[D] phone out of the [C]wall
[G]Only me[D]mories, fading me[C]mories

Blending into dull tableaux
[G]I w[D]ant them ba[C]ck
[G]I w[D]ant them ba[C]ck
(This is where we used to live)
[G]I w[D]ant them ba[C]ck
(This is where we used to live)
[G]I w[D]ant them b[C]ack
(This is where we used to live)
[G]I w[D]ant them b[Em]ack!
