    It’s the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)

    REM


    Strum:  B   D   D U D U

            1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

     

    G                                          Cmaj7

    That's great, it starts with an earthquake,

                                   G                                      Cmaj7

    birds and snakes, an airplane - Lenny Bruce is not afraid. 

    G

    Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn

    Cmaj7

    world serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs. 

    G

    Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no. 

    Cmaj7

    Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height. 

    Bb

    Wire in a fire, represent the seven games

         Am

    in a government for hire and a combat site.

     

     

    G                                                                                      Cmaj7

    Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.

    G                      

    Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop. 

                 Cmaj7

    Look at that low plane!  Fine then. 

    G                                                                      Cmaj7

    Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it'll do. 

     

    Save yourself, serve yourself. 

                             G

    World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed. 

                             Cmaj7

    Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right. 

             Bb                                                        Am

    You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

     

    Chorus:

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)

    It's the end of the world as we know it

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)

    It's the end of the world as we know it

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)                 C (4)

    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

     

     

    G

    Six o'clock - TV hour.  Don't get caught in foreign tower. 

    Cmaj7

    Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn. 

    G

    Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting. 

    Cmaj7

    Every motive escalate.  Automotive incinerate. 

    G

    Light a candle, light a motive.  Step down, step down. 

    Cmaj7

    Watch a heel crush, crush. 

                                G

    Uh oh, this means no fear - cavalier.  Renegade and steer clear!

    Cmaj7

       A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies. 

    Bb                                                             Am

    Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

     

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)

    It's the end of the world as we know it

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)

    It's the end of the world as we know it

                 G (1)        Dsus2 (1)   Am (2)              C (2)

    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

    G (2)      Cmaj7 (2)     G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)   G (2)    F (4)

        I feel fine

     

    Chorus

     

    G

    The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide.

    Cmaj7

    Mount St. Edelite.  Leonard Bernstein. 

    G 

    Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.

    Cmaj7

    Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom! 

            Bb                                                 Am

    You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck, right?  Right.
