DWhen the earth was still flat
D/BAnd the clouds made of fire
Aadd9And mountains stretched up to the sky
G Sometimes higher
G Folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs
DThey had two sets of arms, they had two sets of legs
F#mThey had two faces peering out of one giant head
EmSo they could watch all around them
AAs they talked while they read
G A DAnd they never knew nothing of love
G A D GIt was before the origin of love
D GThe origin of love
BmAnd there were three sexes then, one of them looked like two men glued up back to back
GCalled the children of the sun
DAnd similar in shape and girth were the children of the earth
D GThey looked like two girls rolled up in one
AAnd the children of the moon
BmWere like a fork stuck on a spoon
C#mThey were part sun part earth
APart daughter part son
D G D GThe origin of love
DNow the gods grew quite scared
D/BOf our strength and defiance
G GAnd Thor said, "I'm gonna kill 'em all with my hammer
G GLike I killed the giants."
GAnd Zeus said, "No, you'd better let me
DUse my lightning like scissors
D DLike I cut the legs off the whales, dinosaurs and the lizards
F#mThen he grabbed up some bolts
GAnd he let out a laugh
EmSaid, "I'll split them right dowm the middle
AGonna cut 'em right up in half."
G A DAnd the storm clouds gathered above
GInto great balls of fire
BmAnd then fire shot down from the sky in bolts
GLike shining blades of a knife
BmAnd it ripped right through the flesh
GOf the children of the sun and the moon and the earth
BmAnd some indian god sewed the wound up to a hole
GPulled it around to our belly to remind us the price we paid
BmAnd Osiris and the gods of the nile
GGathered up a big storm
EmTo blow a hurricane
BmTo scatter us away
GIn a flood of wind and rain
EmAnd a sea of tidal waves
BmTo wash us all away
GAnd if we don't behave
EmThey'll cut us down again
Ab GAnd we'll be hopping 'round on one foot
D Gand looking through one eye
DLast time I saw you
BmWe'd just split in two
GYou were looking at me
AI was looking at you
DAnd you had a way so familiar
BmI could not recognize
GCuz you had blood on your face
AI had blood in my eyes
DBut I swear by your expression
BmThat the pain down in your soul
G AWas the same as the one down in mine
DThat's the pain
Bm GThat cuts a straight line down through the heart
AWe call it love
DWe wrapped our arms 'round each other
BmTried to shove ourselves back together
G AWe were making love making love
D BmIt was a cold dark evening such a long time ago
G AWhen by the mighty hand of Jove
D BmIt was a sad story how we became lonely two-legged creatures
G AThe story of the origin of love
D G D G D G...That's the origin of love
