Flight Of The Conchords - Sellotape tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey, I decided to tab because there were no tabs on here that had:

1) The WHOLE song (with lyrics)
2) The slide part at the D's.

so here it is.

When they both sing I've put Bret's part on top and Jemaine's at the bottom.
{X} indicate an action, not a lyric

Example:
{yells} would mean that someone is yelling.

[Verse]
G         G/F#             Em       Am                   Am7                D  D-h
Lives are like retractable pencils, if you push them too hard they’re gonna break.
G              G/F#        Em    Am              Am7                       D  D-h       
And people are like paper dolls, paper dolls and people, they’re a similar shape.
G           G/F#           Em    Am          Am7                      D   D-h   
And love is like a roll of tape, it’s real good for making two things one
G                  G/F#    Em    Am                    Am7                 D  D-h
But just like that roll of tape, love sometimes breaks off before you were done.
G                G/F#               Em              Em7
Another way that love is similar to love, that I’ve noticed
Am                 Am7             D D-h
Is, sometimes it’s hard to see the end.
    G                                G/F#
You search ’round the roll           Search ’round the roll
                you search ’round the roll        you’re searching ’round the roll
    Em                                Em7
You search ’round the roll with your fingernai-ai-al         
                you search with your fingernai-ai-al
Am        Am7       D                  (hold)
Again and again and again and again...           Wo-wu-wo-  
Again and again and again and again... and agai-hain
 
[Chorus]
G            G/F#         Em                         Em7
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape, 
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape,
            Am     Am7        D       
the tape of lo-hove
the tape of lo-hove... sticky stuff

Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape, 
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape,

  G                          G/F# 
   Brown         paper,      white        paper, 
People people paper paper paper paper people people
  Em                          Em7           Am     Am7    D      
   stickin’ together with the tape, tape of lo-hove
Paper paper pencil pencil pencil pencil people people
 
{Humming with choir – continue chorus chords}

You know Jemaine, I’ve been talking about love, and I guess it’s the very strongest... adhesive
{Humming with choir}

Sorry Bret, were you talking to me? I was humming. What did you say?
Oh, it doesn’t matter.

G            G/F#         Em                         Em7
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape,

G            G/F#         Em                         Em7
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape, 
Brown paper, white paper, stickin’ together with the tape,
            Am     Am7         D                                           G
