Verse 1:
Dm                  Gm
We've been driving around
Dm                    Gm          Bb        C
From one end of this town to the other and back
Bb            F            Bb        F    Bb
But no one's ever seen us (No one's ever seen us)
Bb            F       Bb                                        
Driving our Econoline van (And no one's ever heard of our band)
    C                            A
And no one's ever heard of our band

Chorus:
                D  D[C#]  Bm
We're the Mesopota- mi -  ans
  Bm[A     G        Gsus4[F#] Em         A
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

Bridge:
D          D[C#]             Bm Bm[A]    G
Then they wouldn't understand a word we say,
Gm                                    F#m
So we'll scratch it all down into the clay
B                                         Em
Half believing there will sometime come a day someone gives a damn
A
Maybe when the concrete has crumbled to sand

Chorus: 
We're the Mesopota-mi -ans
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

Bridge:
The Mesopotam-ish sun is beating down
Dm                         Gm
And making cracks in the ground
Bb                            C
But there's nowhere else to stand
Bb       F Bb    Bb             F   Bb
In Mesopotamia, (No one's ever seen us)
     Bb               F     Bb       C
The kingdom where we secretly reign (And no one's ever heard of our band)
A
The land where we invisibly rule

Chorus:
As the Mesopota-mi -ans
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

Bridge:
D              Bm
This is my last stick of gum
             Em                      G
I'm going to cut it up so everybody else gets some
F#m                          B                C                  A
Except for Ashurbanipal who says my haircut makes me look like aMohenjodaroan
A
Hey, Ashurbanipal,

Chorus:
I'm a Mesopota-mi -an
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh
We're the Mesopota-mi -ans
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

Bridge:
               G                    Em
"Hey, man, I thought that you were dead
     C                     Am
I thought you crashed your car"
     Em                     A                    Em           A
"No, man, I've been right here this whole time playing bass guitar
For the Mesopotamians"

Chorus:
We're the Mesopota-mi -ans
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal, and Gilgamesh
We're the Mesopota-mi -ans
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal, and Gilgamesh
