Verse 1
D    G      A       D
Long ago in days of yore
       G            A         D
It all began with a god named Thor
           A           Bm
There were Vikings and boats
         G                       D
And some plans for a furniture store
     D       G          A     D
It's not a bodega, it's not a mall
              G           A         D
And they sell things for apartments smaller 
     A           Bm          G                      D
than mine, As if there were apartments smaller than mine

Chorus
  A  Bm G                            D                         D    A    Asus4
I-ke-a (Ikea-a) just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen
  A  Bm G                         D                          D    A    Asus4         
I-ke-a (Ikea-a) selling furniture For college kids and divorced men
G        D     A7 A7sus4 A7
Everyone has a home
    G            D      A                    D    Dsus4 D
But if you don't have a home you can buy one there

Verse 2
   D      G      A        D
So rent a car or take the bus
         G             A        D
Lay your cash down and put your trust
       A              Bm        G                       D
In the land where the furniture folds to a much smaller size
          G        A    D
Billy the bookcase says hello
              G           A         D
And so does a table whose name is Ingo
        A          Bm          G                              D
And the chair is a ladder-back birch but his friends call him Karl


Chorus
  A  Bm G                            D                         D    A    Asus4
I-ke-a (Ikea-a) just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen
  A  Bm G                         D                          D    A    Asus4         
I-ke-a (Ikea-a) selling furniture For college kids and divorced men
G        D     A7 A7sus4 A7
Everyone has a home
    G            D      A                    D    Dsus4 D
But if you don't have a home you can buy one there

Bm    F#

D     A7         Dadd4/A
Ikea: meatballs, tasty
Bm    F#
Ikea: Allen wrenches
D
All of them for free

Verse 3
    D       G    A    D
I'm sorry I said Ikea sucks
                G         A  D
I just bought a table for 60 bucks
      A           Bm         G                          D
And a chair and a lamp And a shelf and some candles for you
        G       A         D
I was a doubter just like you
               G        A          D
'til I saw the American dream come true
       A       Bm         G                    D
In New Jersey, they got a god damned Swedish parade
