Tuning: Standard E (Capo 5th fret!)

Very simple and fun song. The chord progression is the same all the way through,
(except for the short trumpet interludes) so I'm just giving you chords for the first 
few lines. Then you can listen to the song and learn the rest. Don't forget the capo!


Intro: C  G  C  G  C  G  D  D

C G C GAt ten in the morning I was laughing at something
C G DAt the airport terminal
C G C G C G D At nine in the evening I was sitting crying to you over the phone
C G C GWhile passing the border from a state to another
C G DFilled with people whom I couldn't help to relate to
And we stopped a while at a roadside restaurant Where the waitress was sitting outside smoking in her car She had that look of total fear in her eyes And as we drove away from there she looked at me and she smiled I keep running around, trying to find the ground But my head is in the stars my feet are in the sky Well I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kii--ing of the world Interlude backing chords: G C G C G C D D And once you asked me well what's my biggest fear That things would always remain so unclear That one day I'd wake up all alone With a big family and emptiness deep in my bones That I would be so blinded, turn a deaf ear And that my fake laugh would suddenly sound sincere Now I wasn't born for anything Wasn't born to say anything I'm just here now and soon I'll be gone I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kiii--ing of the world [Interlude again] Now every day there's a short intermission While I sleep they start dimming the lights But I've seen everything I ever want to see Screaming "FIRE!!" in the theater, people taking their seats Watch it all go down like the stone in the stream You fall for your reflection, you drown in the dream Tell me something real, tell me something true I just want to feel there's something left that I can do But I'm nobody's baby, I'm everybody's girl I'm the queen of nothing, I'm the kiii-ing of the world [Another interlude, then the song ends with a C]
