Five For Fighting - Bellas Birthday Cake tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I recommend tuning down a half-step so you can use alternate fingerings for
some of the chords.  I mean, who plays an Eb bar chord anyways?  Suggested
fingerings are A#dim - {X12320} and B/F# - {224442}

Tuning: Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb

Intro: C#m

Verse: C#m   B          E            F#     C#m       B           A#dim
       Bella played the bridge every second loneliest night of the year

    A              B           E            D
and took a certain liking to a fella there, Bella

    A                  B                E           D 
She said I brought her back to some old better man, fella

F#                   G#   A
Bella she was born today, feeling kinda spry...


Chorus: C#m       A         E      B/F#
        Bella's Birthday Cake was burning, yeah
        Like Lightning,     Like Fire
        Bella's Birthday Cake was burning... 

(Intro)(Verse)(Chorus)

Break: {C#m  A  E  B/F#}  x2

Bridge: F#              B               F#               B          (B7)
     And all of her lines she left unread, spirits and battles won, she said

G#              C#m              B                   A#dim
and over her mountain tops she ground me off where...I can't remember...

(Break)

Reprise: C#m  B          E             F#     C#m       B            A#dim
	Bella played the bridge on the second loneliest night of the year

F#                    G#  A
Bella she was born today...


"Bella!": {C#m  A  E  B/F#}  x 4

(Chorus) ad nauseum

Lyrics
Verse: Bella played the bridge every second loneliest night of the year
Took a certain liking to a fellow there - Bella
She said I brought her back to some old better man - fellah
Bella she was born today feeling kinda spry 

Chorus: Bella's Birthday Cake was burning
Like Lightning, Like Fire
Bella's Birthday Cake was burning... 

Verse: Bella made her bed in red every loneliest night of the year
Tied me to the rages of her rocking chair - Bella
Fed me quiet offer through her ever wares - I'll tell ya
Bella she was born today feeling kinda spry 

Chorus: Bella's Birthday Cake was burning
Like Lightning, Like Fire
Bella's Birthday Cake was burning
Ever yearning Forest Fire 

Bridge: and all of her lines she left unread
"spirits and battles won," she said
and over her mountain tops she ground me off
where...I can't remember... 

Reprise: Bella played the bridge on the second loneliest night of the year
Bella she was born today... 

Chorus: BELLA'S Birthday Cake was burning
Bella's BIRTHDAY Cake was burning
Bella's Birthday CAKE was burning
Bella's Birthday Cake was BURNING...50 years gone.


*[on a personal note, i first heard this song on a promotional cd for
Surge, that green soda from the 90's.  Surge no longer exists, and this
song was tough to find. Finally found it on youtube in some clip featuring
the Sims. Enjoy!]
