Tragic Kingdom

No Doubt

 

 

Intro (Fig. 1)

 

Verse 1 (Fig. 2):

Once was a magical place

Over time it was lost

Price increased the cost

Now the fortune of the kingdom

Is locked up in its dungeon vaults

The castle floor lies in traps

With coiled wires set back

Decoyed by old cheese

Now the drawbridge has been lifted

As the millions

They drop to their knees

 

Chorus (Dm Bb 4x):

The pay homage to a king

Whose dreams are buried in their minds

His tears are frozen stiff

Icicles drip from his eyes

 

Verse 2 (Fig. 2):

The cold wind blows as it snows

On those who fight to get in

On heads that are small

Disillusioned as they enter

They're unaware what's behind castle walls

But now it's written in stone

The king has been overthrown by jesterly fools

And the power of the people

Shall come to believe they do rule

 

Chorus (Dm Bb 4x):

The pay homage to a king

Whose dreams are buried in their minds

His tears are frozen stiff

Icicles drip from his eyes

 

(Fig. 3 2x)

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Cornfields of popcorn have yet to spring open

 

 

(Fig. 4 2x)

 

 

Interlude (F#m C# E B 2x):

Have they lost their heads

Or are they just al blind mice

We've heard all their stories

One too many times

 

(F#m Fm Em D#m (B))

Hypnotized by fireflies

That glow in the dark

Midgets that disguise themselves

As tiny little dwarfs

The parade that's electrical

It serves no real purpose

Just takes up a lot of juice

Just to impress us

 

(missing part, sorry....)

 

Solo (Fig. 5)

 

Chorus (Dm Bb 4x):

The pay homage to a king

Whose dreams are buried in their minds

His tears are frozen stiff

Icicles drip from his eyes

 

 

(Dm Bb)

Ohoo, they dripped from his eyes into the night

They dripped from his eyes...

They pay homage to a king, buried in their minds

They dripped from his eyes

 

 

Outro (Fig. 6 part one)

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Cornfields op popcorn have yet to spring open

 

(Fig. 6 part two x)

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom

(and more and more and more)
