"The Origin of Love" by Hedwig and the Angry Inch (from the movie) Tabbed by Aaron (it's acoustic) D D/B Aadd9 G G/D Gadd6 GDWhen the earth was still flatD/BAnd the clouds made of fireAadd9And mountains stretched up to the skyGSometimes higherGFolks roamed the earth like big rolling kegsDThey had two sets of arms, they had two sets of legsF#mThe had two faces peering out of one giant headEmSo they could watch all around themAAs they talked while they readG A DAnd they never knew nothing of loveG A D GIt was before... the origin of loveD GThe origin of loveBmAnd there were three sexes then, One that 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 moonBmWere like a fork shoved on a spoon.C#mThey were part sun, part earthAPart daughter, part son.D G D GThe origin of loveDNow the gods grew quite scaredD/BOf our strength and defianceG GAnd Thor said, "I'm gonna kill them all with my hammer,G GLike I killed the giants."GAnd Zeus said, "No,you better let meDUse my lightening, like scissors,D DLike I cut the legs off the whales, dinosaurs and the lizards."F#mThen he grabbed up some boltsGAnd he let out a laugh,EmSaid, "I'll split them right down the middle.AGonna cut 'em right up in half."G A DAnd then storm clouds gathered aboveGInto great balls of fireBmAnd then fire shot down from the sky in boltsGLike shining blades of a knife.BmAnd it ripped right through the fleshGOf the children of the sun And the moon And the earth.BmAnd some Indian god sewed the wound up into a holeGPulled it round to our belly to remind us of the price we pay.BmAnd Osiris and the gods of the NileGGathered up a big stormEmTo 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 behaveEmThey'll cut us down againAb GAnd we'll be hopping round on one footD GAnd looking through one eye.D Em GDLast time I saw youBmWe had just split in two.GYou were looking at me.AI was looking at you.DYou had a way so familiar,BmBut I could not recognize,G'Cause you had blood on your face;AI had blood in my eyes.DBut I swear by your expressionBmThat the pain down in your soulG AWas the same as the one down in mine.DThat's the pain,Bm GCuts a straight line down through the heart;AWe call it love.DWe wrapped our arms around each other,BmTrying to shove ourselves back together.GWe were making love,AMaking 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 AIt's the story of the origin of love.D G D G D GThat's the origin of love.
