Athena, all I ever want to do is please her My life has been so settled and she's the reason Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone But I think I'll get along She's just a girl, she's a bomb She's just a girl, she's a bomb

She's just a girl, she's a bomb She's just a girl, she's a bomb Consumed, there was a beautiful white horse I saw on a dream stage He had a snake the size of a sewer pipe living in his ribcage And I felt like a pickled priest who was being flambed You've got me requisitioned, blondie She's just a girl, she's a bomb She's just a girl, she's a bomb Just a girl... |A/C# D | She's just a girl... |A5 |G |D |E/D | [bridge] [horn solo] |Dmaj9 D |Dmaj7 D |E/D D6 |E/D D6 | |Dmaj9 D |Dmaj7 Look into the face of a child D |E/D D |E/D D | Measure how long you smiled before the memory claimed |E/D D |E/D D|E/D D |E/D D | How long would children remain, how long could children remain? Athena, you picked me up by my lapel and screamed "leave her."

Athena, I had no idea how much I need her My life has been so settled and she's the reason Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone But I think I'll get along [acoust] 2 ||:G D G D G |G D G D G :||A5 She's just a girl She's a bomb (She's just a) ||[elec] | || G/||:G-------* |G-------* :||A5 [note: elec. should sustain until *] ============= litgo@aol.com #----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------# #This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the # #song.
