EI once had a girl, she lived in the past
A EIt was clear that relationship wouldn't last
BIt was clear from the way she had to sleep south
A EIt was clear from the lines around her mouth
So I went for a walk in the ravine
A EI came upon an unbelievable scene
BIn a tiny creek there's a tiny boat
A EWith a tiny man in a tiny coat
I said "Hey man, do you think you can help?"
A EHe said "Of course I can - I'm an elf
BWe're not just fictional device
A EWe sail ravines and give advice"
I said "My baby is what it's about"
A EHe cried "Helms a-lee, boy, I'm comin' about
BDon't fill me in on right or wrong
A ETake these ropes and sing this song"
E Circumstances eat themselves

EHis eyes were afire, he lit up a coal
A EHanded me a ladle and a little white bowl
BPut the pot on the fire, he opened a book
A EAnd said "sit down, the thing's gotta cook"
"That's the loveliest pot I've ever seen"
A EHe said "it's not a pot, it's a tureen
BAnd what's inside will make you well
A ESo ring this little dinner bell"
Then he giggled in french - that's what he did
A ELike a kid at Christmas, as he opened the lid
B"Help yourself" he beamed with pride
A EBut there was no sweet soup inside.
Silence fell on the cooling night
A EI thought I better fake it just to be polite
BSmallest friend, biggest moon
A EEmpty bowl, empty spoon.
E Circumstances eat themselves
A A/G# F#mThe present tense has been
BFill the fancy bowl up
A EAt the present tense tureen.
E Circumstances eat themselves
