Flight Of The Conchords – Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time chords ver. 2

First of all I'd like to say that this is 100% correct, and I'm sure of it because I 
the chords which are conveniently listed with the lyrics in the cd jacket-book-thingy. I'm 
putting the two together and posting them online.(but I might spell something wrong, so lookout!)

[things in brackets [] are things jemaine says]

This is how I play the chords:

D D/C# D/B D/A G G/F# Ae - - - - 3 (3) 0 5B 7 7 7 7 3 (3) 0 5G 7 7 7 7 4 4 0 6D 7 7 7 7 5 5 2 7A 5 4 - (5) 5 5 2 7E - - 7 5 3 2 0 5
D D/C# D/B D/AI was wandering through the streets of the city
G G/F# Em ARambling through the avenues of time
D D/C# D/B D/AWhen from nowhere my eyes fell onto a girl
G G/F# Em AAnd by chance her eyes fell onto mine
D D/C# D/B D/ASo I sat and I acted all nonchalant
G G/F# Em AShe smoked her lavender cigarette
D D/C# D/B D/AReading the future that lay in my hands
G G/F# Em(strum once, let ring)My shadow played a bass clarinet
(Bass clarinet plays, no guitar) [Where are you going with this, Bret?]
D D/C# D/B D/AWe waltzed down a moonlight boulevard
G G/F# Em AJust two silhouettes in the mist
[Ah, yes?]
D D/C# D/B D/ADays went by and years went by
G G/F# Em AMoments went by when we kissed
[When was this?]
D D/C# D/B D/AShe said, "You beard is woven of heartache
G G/F# Em AAnd we'll drink for the lonely tonight."
D D/C# D/B D/AAnd the moon is a horny old drunkard
G G/F# Em A[Ah, Bret. Could you please move over to your right?]
(There is no guitar in this next part, but I'm sure you've figured out the pattern by if you wanna play along anyway) We drank dandelion wine and we reminisced About the moment when we first met that day [I'm trying to watch TV] Then we reminisced about how we first reminisced [Ah yeah. Sounds a bit gay] She handed me a broken memory A keepsake to forevermore say That brief taste of love is as sweet as any And with that, she made her way [Oh yeah. What was her name?]
D D/C# D/B D/AShe said her name was a secret
G G/F# Em AThen she said her name was Cherie
D D/C# D/B D/A[Is her middle name Cherie, so it's a Secret Cherie, maybe?]
G G/F# Em A Mm.. Maybe
[What did she look like?]
D D/C# D/B D/AShe looked like a Parisian river
[What, dirty?]
G G/F# Em AShe looked like a chocolate éclair
[That's rare]
D D/C# D/B D/AHer eyes were reflections of eyes
[Oh, nice]
G G/F# Em AAnd the rainbows danced in her hair
[Oh yeah..]
D D/C# D/B D/AShe reminded me of a winter's morning
[What, frigid?]
G G/F# Em AHer perfume was eau de toilette
[What's that mean?]
D D/C# D/B D/AShe was comparable to Cleopatra
[Quite old?]
G G/F# Em AShe was like Shakespeare's Juliet
D D/C# D/B D/AThe bohemians of Soho did pirouettes
G G/F# Em AAs we waltzed through the streets of Manhattan
D D/C# D/B D/AOn rivers of ribbon and sailboats of song
G G/F# Em A [Bret, did any of this actually happen?]
(guitar drops out here, but I left the bass notes incase you wanna throw them down)
D C# B AThe girl I described, she's as real as the wind
G F# EIt's true I saw her today
A D C# B AThe other details are inventions
G F# E~Because I prefer her that way
