Tabbed by David B?rd-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 !

1st Verse

---------

Esus4

You can't imagine so many monkeys in the daily mail

 

All of them coming anonymously so they leave no trail

Esus4

I never 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)

E Asus2

Some chimps in swimsuits, some chimps are swinging from a vine

E Asus2

Some chimps in jackboots, some chimps that wish they could be mine.

E Asus2

Starsky and Hutch chimps, a chimp who's sitting on the can

E Asus2

A pair of Dutch chimps who send their love from Amsterdam.

Another postcard with chimpanzees

3rd Verse

---------

Esus4

If I had to 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

Esus4

I'm losing 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.

---------

E Asus2

Some chimps in hard hats, chimps a-working on a chain gang

Some chimps who love cats, burning rubber in a Mustang

E Asus2

A birthday-wishing chimp, a chimp in black like a goth

E Asus2

A goin' fishin' chimp, a British chimp in the bath.

5th Verse

---------

Esus4

Somehow they followed me even though I packed and moved my home

 

No matter what, they come and they come they won't leave me alone

Esus4

Another monkey in the mail could make me lose my mind

 

But look at me shuffling through the stack until I finally find

I've got depraved chimps dressed up in women's underwear.
