THE HELL OF IT
(Paul Williams)
-From the 'Phantom of the Paradise' soundtrack.


E
Roll on thunder, shine on lightning
    Am
The days are long and the nights are frightenin'
C
Nothing matters anyway,
               G           D Am
And that's the hell of it.

E
Winter comes and the winds blew colder
      Am
While some grew wiser, you just grew older
    C
And you never listened anyway,
               G           D Am
And that's the hell of it.

G
Good for nothing, bad in bed
G
Nobody likes you and you're better off dead
    C                  E                       C  
Goodbye (Goodbye!), we've all come to say goodbye (Goodbye!),
     E 
Goodbye (Goodbye!).

G
Born defeated, died in vain
G
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
C                  E 
Though your music lingers on
C              E 
All of us are glad you're gone

Bm                               C              G
If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
Bm                      C               E   D Am
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too.

E                                 
Love yourself as you loved no other
   Am
Be no man's fool and be no man's brother
      C                                           G 
We're all born to die alone, you know, that's the hell of it.

E
Life's a game where they're bound to beat you
    Am
And time's a trick it can turn to cheat you
     C
And we only waste it anyway,
               G 
And that's the hell of it.

G
Good for nothing, bad in bed
G
Nobody likes you and you're better off dead
    C                  E                       C  
Goodbye (Goodbye!), we've all come to say goodbye (Goodbye!),
     E 
Goodbye (Goodbye!).

G
Born defeated, died in vain
G
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
C                  E 
Though your music lingers on
C              E 
All of us are glad you're gone

Bm                               C              G
If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
Bm                      C               E
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too.

I think it was a shame that this song wasn't yet in UG, so, though I'm an awful 
guitar player (and, as you can see, an awful english speaker as well), I tried to 
get the chords...
And, well, here it is, my first tab. Don't be rough, I'M A BABY!
As you'll see, it's easy as hell, so...
Enjoy (if you can).
