(the intro isn't really chord, so much as single

notes, but I did my best to find chords that fit.)

 

INTRO

/G#

I was never cool in school.

Ebaug

I'm sure you don't remember me.

B/F# F#

And now it's been ten years, I'm still wondering who to be.

G#m Gaug

And I'd love to mix in circles, cliques,

B/F# Fdim7

and social coteries, that's me.

B/F# F#

Hand me my nose ring. (Can we be happy?)

E

Show me the mosh pit. (Can we be happy?)

B /C# /D# E B/D# /C# /B A

We can be hap - py un - der - ground.

Who's got the looks? Who's got the brains?

Who's got every thing?

E D#7 G#m7 Gm7 F#m7 E/F# A/F#

I got this pain in my heart, that's all.

E Em A7 B

(Hey you with the long and lonely face)

D E E/F#

Yeah, there's gotta be something else.

 

VERSE 2

And let me tell you something else,

There was a girl that passed me by, she gave a smile,

But I was shy and I looked down, so down.

(Don't look down no no, go go underground.)

But now there's a place to go.

 

PRE-CHORUS (piano on B octaves)

B B7/A G#m

It's the morning now, it's the evening, it's everything.

G7 F#7

I click my heels and I'm there.

(Underground, underground,

E7

Ooo) Everything's heavy underground.

B C#7 E7

You been kicked around, did life bring you down here?

B /C# /D# E B/D# /C# /B A F#

E - very - thing's hea - vy un - der - ground.

 

VERSE 2

And we'll be decked in all black,

Slamming the pit fantastic.

Officer Friendly's little boy's got a mohawk,

and he knows just where we're coming from.

(It's industrial, work it underground)

Get down, get down, get down, yeah!

 

CHORUS

(Underground, underground, oo) Everything's heavy underground.

You been kicked around? Did life bring you down here?

Everything's heavy underground.

We can be happy, we can be happy, we can be happy underground.

 

B Baug B6(no5) Baug

Oh where can, oh where can, oh where can we be?
