"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   G

DWhen the earth was still flat
D/BAnd the clouds made of fire
Aadd9And mountains stretched up to the sky
GSometimes higher
GFolks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs
DThey had two sets of arms, they had two sets of legs
F#mThe 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 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 moon
BmWere like a fork shoved 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 them all with my hammer,
G GLike I killed the giants."
GAnd Zeus said, "No,you better let me
DUse my lightening, 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 down the middle.
AGonna cut 'em right up in half."
G A DAnd then 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 into a hole
GPulled it round to our belly to remind us of the price we pay.
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.
D Em G
DLast time I saw you
BmWe 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 expression
BmThat the pain down in your soul
G 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.
