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

                D  D/C#  G/B  
We're the Mesopota-mi    -ans
D/A     G          D/F#       Em       A
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

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

                D  D/C#   G/B  
We're the Mesopota-mi    -ans
D/A     G          D/F#       Em            Asus4
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

                   Dm            Gm
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/A Bb                F/A  Bb
In Mesopotamia, (No one's ever seen us)
    Bb               F/A   Bb C
The kingdom where we secretly reign (And no one's ever heard of our band)
    A
The land where we invisibly rule

             D  D/C#   G/B  
As the Mesopota-mi    -ans
D/A     G          D/F#       Em       A
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

D               Bm
This is my last stick of gum 
             Em                     Gm
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 a Mohenjo-daroan

A
Hey, Ashurbanipal,
            D  D/C#   G/B  
I'm a Mesopota-mi    -an
D/A     G          D/F#       Em            Asus4

We're the Mesopota-mi    -ans
D/A     G          D/F#       Em            Asus4
Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbani -pal, and Gilgamesh

             G            D/F#     Em    G/D
"Hey, man, I thought that you were dead
  C           C/B          Am    C/G
I thought you crashed your car"
     E         G/D        A/C#      A          E7      E7/G#   A
"No, man, I've been right here this whole time playing bass guitar
For the Mesopotamians"
N.C.            D  D/C#   G/B   D/A   G
We're the Mesopota-mi    -ans
