           G                             Cadd9
  It's been one week since you looked at me
Bdim6                     Riff 1
  Cocked your head to the side, and said "I'm angry"
G                                  Cadd9
  Five days since you laughed at me saying
  Bdim6              Riff 1
  "Get that together come back and see me"
G                        Cadd9
  Three days since the living room
    Bdim6                Riff 1
  I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you
  G                    Cadd9
  Yesterday you'd forgiven me
            Bdim6                  Riff 1
  But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

  G(2) or
  G               Cadd9                             G
  Hold it now and watch the hoodwink, as I make you stop, think
      Cadd9
  You'll think you're looking at Aquaman


 And continue on and on like this until the ¨How can I help it...¨ part.


  I summon fish to the dish, although I like Chalet Swiss
  I like the sushi 'cause it's never touched a frying pan
  Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes, big like LeAnn Rimes
  Because I'm all about value
  Bert Kaempfert's got the mad hits, you try to match wits
  You try to hold me but I bust through
  Gonna make a break and take a fake; I'd like a stinkin' achin' shake
  I like vanilla, it's the finest of the flavours
  Gotta see the show, 'cause then you'll know the vertigo is gonna grow
  'Cause it's so dangerous, you'll have to sign a waiver

G(2) or
G                   D/F#
  How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
D/B           Cadd9
  Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad
G                 D/F#
  I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
D/B                Cadd9
  Can't understand what I mean? Well, you soon will
G                D/F#
  I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
D/B             Cadd9
  I have a history of taking off my shirt

  It's been one week since you looked at me
  Threw your arms in the air and said "You're crazy"
  Five days since you tackled me
  I've still got the rug burns on both my knees
  It's been three days since the afternoon
  You realized it's not my fault not a moment too soon
  Yesterday you'd forgiven me
  And now I sit back and wait till you say you're sorry

During the instrumental break, both rhythm guitars just play G  Cadd9.

  Chickity China the Chinese chicken:
  You have a drum stick and your brain stops tickin'
  Watchin' X-Files with no lights on, we're dans la maison (dans la maison...)
  I hope the Smoking Man's in this one
  Like Harrison Ford, I'm getting frantic; Like Sting, I'm tantric
  Like snickers, guaranteed to satisfy
  Like Kurasawa, I make mad films; Okay, I don't make films
  But If I did they'd have a Samurai
  Gonna get a set of better clubs; gonna find the kind with tiny nubs
  Just so my irons aren't always flying off the back-swing
  Gonna get in tune with Sailor Moon 'cause the cartoon has got
  The boom anime babes that make me think the wrong thing

  How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad
  Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad
  I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
  Can't understand what I mean? You soon will
  I have a tendency to wear my mind of my sleeve
  I have a history of losing my shirt

  It's been one week since you looked at me
  Dropped your arms to your sides and said "I'm sorry" (hey)
  Five days since I laughed at you and said
  "You just did just what I thought you were gonna do"
  Three days since the living room
  We realized we're both to blame, but what could we do?
  Yesterday you just smiled at me
  'Cause it'll still be two days till we say we're sorry

Same thing as during rap verses.
  It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry
  It'll still be two days till we say wasabi
  Birchmount stadium: Home of the Robbie

End on G.

That´s it. Enjoy.
